Well, I've been pretty focused on eating the right things & right amounts along with daily exercise. My scale showed 1 pound loss. But if I keep in mind that I really started exercising and watching what I ate on the day I left for a Beach Vacation on July 30th then I've lost a total of 5 lbs. in 2 1/2 weeks. So I refuse to quit!! A friend loaned me her copy of the Flat Belly Diet and it gives you a 4 day Jump Start plan so I started today. The food and this Sassy Water (ginger, cucumber, lemon, and spearmint soaked water) is pretty dismal but it claims that you can lose around 4 lbs. The most successful diet I was on a few years back was LA Weightloss (then they went bankrupt), anyway they had this pretty similiar Take Off plan for 2 days. I think it just somehow let's your body and brain know that you mean business. So, I'm determined to give it a try. I'll keep you posted. Anyone out there have any luck with the Flat Belly Diet?
