Down a pound =)

I weighed in this morning at 166, and I am so pleased with that! I have been really constipated lately, so I'm hoping once things start moving again I'll continue to lose.


I did an NRG footbath; anyone familiar with those? You can read more about it here. Basically, all the toxins in your body are positively charged, and the machine is negatively charged. It acts like a magnet to draw out the toxins from the body through the feet, which have the largest pores.

It was amazing and disgusting and cool all at once. As soon as my friend turned it on the water started turning brown. I think I did it for 45 minutes total, and this was the end result. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR WEAK STOMACHED!!!!!

Is that disgusting or what!?!?!? BLACK WATER. All of it coming out of my body.

My friend does these on a regular basis and has gotten to the point where she can do the bath and at the end the water is still clear. I'm definitely intrigued by this! She invited me to come back next week and do it again, and I'm planning to do so.

She is also a huge proponent of the Live Right for your Blood Type diet, which I think is what Greta follows too. It's pretty strict as far as what you can and can't eat... well, I should rephrase that. What you should and shouldn't eat.

Right now it's way too much for me to do; especially because SO MANY of the foods I love are bad for my "O" blood type-- avocados, strawberries, gouda cheese, oranges, corn, wheat, most dairy, etc...

But it is something I will be checking into. I'm going to see if I can find a copy of the book and slowly start incorporating the "right" foods more into my diet.

I'm feeling really good today. I feel well-balanced and happy and not stressed. It doesn't hurt that my husband is FINALLY coming home!! Man, I tell you what, 3 days has never seemed so long! I'll be so glad when we are moved and can see each other more. I miss him. ;-)

I hope you all are doing wonderfully! Have a great weekend!


  1. YAY! So fun you are losing, and without trying TOO hard ;)
    Thanks for hanging out today. I am excited for you, that Josh comes home today. Have a wonderful time.

  2. WOW RuthAnne, I can't believe that water!!! I've been meaning to go over there and do that too, but now I'm scared it's going to be black and here I thought I was so healthy, lol.

    I'm super excited that you're slowly but surely LOSING - how cool is it to see that 166 number??!!! Awesome. Keep it up!

  3. 166 sounds pretty darn good! I have done that footbath thing. I tried it a couple years ago. I am suspicious, tho....not sure why.....maybe I should just go do it again.

    Avocadoes are fine in moderation with the Hunter diet...but we did not figure out yet what your geno type is. You need to still email me your measurements and stuff (or maybe you did...I have not checked email in a while). The BIG BIG BIG one for type Os is wheat. If you can avoid all wheat for a couple weeks...I PROMISE you will notice a big difference in energy levels, bowell issues, weight, etc.

    I am not a perfect follower, by the way..but I do try to stick to it more often than not. Now, if I do manage to eat some wheat....I definitely notice a weird taste in my mouth an hour or so later.....and instant weight gain/water retention. It is so bizarre.

    It sounds like you are in a good place right now! Keep up the great work. Spring is here in two days, too...yippee!

  4. Congratulations on the loss! :)

    That water is nasty looking... kinda makes me want to go do it though... just to see. I bet mine would be super icky, lol.

  5. Wow!

    BTW, I have looked into the blood type diet, as well as the genotype diet and SWAMI. It is intriguing.
