What I'm doing now


Perhaps you noticed that I never got to day 17 of the 17 day diet.

Wow, I'm not dyslectic I have diet ADHD!

This is what I'm currently doing to lose weight.

I'm drinking Smoothies that Dr. Oz had in his book You on a Diet.

Because I tend to bounce from diet to diet I'm posting each of the smoothies here so I can find them again.
