New journey for 2011

Hello...Susie Frank here.  I have been on and off diets for the past 16 yrs.  I have tried Richard Simmons deal a meal....failed, Weight Watchers both meetings & online.....failed, no carb diet.....failed.  So for 2011 I'm trying the 17 day diet and basically for the 1st 17 days all you eat is poultry, fish, veggies, and fruit and exercise at least 17 minutes a day.  There is no weighing or measuring, you just eat until you are full.  Sounds easy enough....right!!  Well in one weeks time I have lost 10 lbs!!!  I feel better, I have more energy, I sleep better at night and I don't have that going to explode feeling!!

Good luck to all of us on our journey of weight loss!!


  1. "I lost ten pounds the first week, nee nee nee nee" (said in a snotty, mocking voice).

    Just kidding! I'm happy for you! That's wonderful! I wish I could lose ten pounds. Or even one pound.

    What do you do when the 17 days are up?

  2. Sarah, I was wondering the same thing!? Do you just keep repeating the 17-day diet? I am suddenly in love with this idea. I love poultry and fish and I could handle more fruits and veggies. If I work out for 45 minutes (the length of my Tuesday Zumba class) do I get to bank that? haha kidding.
