A New Me

I’ve been standing in my kitchen prepping a soup for a ten day diet that I am about to start, and I thought I would document my daily progress for all of you to see. Losing weight is SUPER frustrating. It can be discouraging. But, I want it to be inspiring and FUN! A few years ago, I used Young Living Supplements, exercise, and a clean eating plan to lose weight. It worked. Then I got lazy and I gained my weight back AND SOME. So, here we are. I start *fo real* tomorrow. Tonight, I will eat soup and pretend it is day Day 1. I guess technically I will have 1.5 days on the 1st day, just so you know how I am starting. Oh, and I am in a competition with my husband about who can lose the most in 10 days. It’s on like Donkey Kong. 🙂

If you are curious about the soup, just google Miracle Soup or GM Cabbage Soup Diet. You will get the gist of what I am doing.

Here is the soup:


It smells really good. I can’t wait to dive in… but before I do, I wanted to give you some before pictures and stats.

I am 36. I am 5’9. I weigh 175. Images are unedited.

Please for the love of all things good, don’t laugh at me! LOL! I know I have a long way to go, but I am willing to put myself in a vulnerable position so that 1. It will give me accountability. And 2. It will hopefully encourage someone to find their own healthy weight journey.

Here is my plan:

1. Follow the Soup Diet plan daily and take Young Living Supplements

2. T-Tapp for 15 minutes a day

3. Jog 3 times a week (I was already committed to a running group before I started this diet, but it coincides perfectly).

4. Weigh Daily

I have not taken body measurements, but I can do that if anyone would like to know specifics of where I am starting. I only have 3 more words to say. Bring. It. On.


Until next time,
