Hello lost forgotten blog

The doctor is IN....

It's been a while since I've blogged but I'm back with fresh insight and fresh enthusiasm.

After gaining 20 pounds I've decided I need to stop what I've been doing and regroup.

I started unofficially yesterday and officially today.

I'm doing the 17 day diet. The first phase is called the accelerated phase and is basically Atkins with the exception of two servings of fruit a day and one of yogurt. I love fruit and am crazy about yogurt so it seems like a good fit for me. I do need to get sugar and carbs out of my life and out of my system. I might not be able to do it forever but I can swing 17 days.

I learned that I need to set some goals. So my goal is to lose 30 pounds by September 1st....three months. I've already talk to Mr. Wonderful and told him my idea and that I need to have a great reward for reaching that first goal. He agreed!

Over the weekend he bought a treadmill and a recumbent bike for me for 30 dollars for both. We are repurposing our guest room into a gym. Our guest room only gets used maybe once a year if that so we have already taken down the bed and stored the mattress and box spring next to the wall. The guest room has an air conditioner so it won't be hot. The 17 day diet says you must exercise for at least 17 minutes twice a day. I think i can do that even though I hate to exercise.

I lost 3 pounds since Yay me....only 27 to go.
