@gopintos - AMEN!
I'm looking at this as more of a detox and a simple way to get back in the groove. It was easier for me to go cold turkey off refined carbs and sugars and now I will be able to re-introduce foods systematically and see what effect they have on my system.
Starting day 6. Stayed the same this a.m., but was down 2 more yesterday for a total of 7bls. in 4 days. I am thrilled! No one even noticed I was only eating hash browns at the book study last night. One of the ladies brought cheesy scalloped potatoes so I did indulge in those as well.
My plan today is to end this after tomorrow. I am getting tired of taters. But my energy level has been good, I am less bloated and my stomach is also flatter. All good things.
