17 Day Diet, Day 1

I'm starting the 17 Day Diet today.

I feel a little frazzled and unprepared because I desperately need to do some grocery shopping, but I think I have the basics to get me through until I can make it to the store.

For breakfast I had 4oz greek yogurt with strawberries. No granola. I also am drinking Lipton Diet Green Tea; I can't stomach hot green tea, so I'm hoping this will suffice.

Whitney, if you're reading and have time to reply... Do you drink the cup of hot water with lemon in the morning? And also, how many grams of sugar are in your strawberry Chobani yogurt? I haven't seen any sugar-free greek yogurt and the regular kind with strawberries has 13 grams! :-O

Other than that I'm doing pretty well, besides being extremely tired.  I have been having very bizarre dreams every night.  On Saturday I woke up at 1a.m. and didn't fall back asleep until after 5a.m.  So I was dragging all day.  Today I feel drugged and can't wait for rest time so I can lay down with the kids.

I will weigh once a week, on Thursdays, as that is when I will have a scale. 

I started typing out everything you're able to eat, but then I thought maybe that's copyright infringement???

Anyway, this diet is absolutely doable for me, and I will post every day what I ate.  =)  Ideally I'll post at the end of the day, but I may be posting previous day's meals if I don't get on the computer again.

Here's hoping it works for me as well as it has for my girl, Whitney! =) She's getting married this month and has lost over 70 pounds this past year in preparation to look gorgeous at her wedding!!!!


  1. I can't wait to read your meal plans and see how it goes for you.
    Around here (Pennsylvania) we have a store called Wawa, I know weird, but they make a great diet green tea, and I do not like tea either but this stuff is good.

  2. Gonna have to read the book when you're finished with it :)

  3. Thanks for the shout out!!!! I can't stand the taste of hot water, so instead I squeeze half a lemon into cold water. If you can stand the warm water, then I say go for it. But I cannot! I've also been using lime juice to give a little kick to my water too.

    As for the Chobanis, I don't think they are technically allowed since they're not sugar-free, but I love them and didn't want to give them up. I do limit myself to one a day, and use plain, LF yogurt with berries for the other yogurt serving.

    I hope this helps!

  4. I tried to comment earlier, but my internet isn't cooperating so well! AHH!
    Anyhow, thanks again for coming to Brooklyn's program today.
    Hope you had a good day today
