Yep, I’m doing it, The 17 Day Diet…..


So , after two days of research and one final meal (pizza, chocolate and some chips for good measure) I have decided the 17 Day Diet is the way to go. I’m not too keen on a lot of the recipes, however I do have a friend who I trust completely and she had nothing but good things to say.I’m not really interested in losing  a lot of weight very quickly, but do feel the need for a kick-start, so this seems like the perfect route for that. Also the fact that said friend has given me the book for free has made a huge impact on my decision, since like almost everyone else in the universe I am BROKE!

So here is my to do list for tomorrow:

  1. Get Weighed – I do not own a scales and haven’t actually weighed myself in over a year. I can make a decent guess at about 200 lbs, but I don’t know the exact number. Standing on the scales seems quite daunting, although a necessary step on the road to my recovery, so to speak.
  2. Find an exercise plan – I have done diets before, but I have never adhered to an exercise regime. I may start out with the best of intentions but somehow it never lasts more than a week. It’s the laziness in me I guess. This time I am determined to lay out an exercise regime that i can do from home(suggestions appreciated) so I simply have no excuses to back out.
  3. Try something new – So as I have already said, the recipes and meal plans on this diet don’t exactly appeal to me. My main problem on diets in the past has been even on a plan with a wide variety of healthy foods, my choices are limited because of my fussy palette. To try to avoid that problem, I am going to try something I would normally avoid, at least twice a week.

If anyone out there has tried this diet, or any diet, or has any suggestions I would love to hear about your experience or any advice you may have to offer. I’m feeling nervously excited at the beginning of the journey to finding me under my fat!

Thanks for reading.

Wish me luck!!
