My coworkers and I have been doing a modified version of the cabbage soup diet. We did one full week last week and each of us had great success. I lost 8 pounds and my wastebands of my skirts are looser. I am excited. This week we are not doing the diet but we are eating just about all fruits and vegetables and very little else. No candy or junk of any kind. I have several things coming up that I need to be skinnier for...my 30th high school reunion. Scary! I have another big trip planned this summer abroad that I need to be ready for. So I am off to a good start. Now I just need to get moving. The exercise is what I need to fit in now.
