Just saw all the pictures of my college retreat and gasped at myself....Canadians in general are just slimmer than Americans (they don't eat out alot), so I felt I stood out with the "extra" pounds I've put on in my 15 + years here. Time to take action!
I struggle with "meno middle weight" and have heard that the best way to tackle this is with a low glycemic diet. I immediately called up a friend who has lost 40 lbs and kept it off for a number of years using this lifestyle. She has agreed to "hold my
hand" through this process....I will give her a cooking lesson in exchange...we're both happy!
So, come on, join me at any stage of this journey...just make the 7 day commitment and then we'll evaluate. I will make a daily blog entry and would love to hear how your day went.
