I'm so excited! I have struggled for 2 years getting so much as 1 pound off after having Tess and I'm finally seeing some results.
I am sorta following the 17 Day Diet and while I'm not a fan of fad dieting I don't think this plan really falls into that category. Basically the first 17 days are like a cleanse, no sugar, no bread, no pasta, no potatoes, etc. But you have 2 servings of fruit and also make sure to have plenty of lean protein, good vegetables, at least 2 servings of probiotics (like Greek yogurt) and drink green tea.
I have been amazed at how great I started feeling after just the first day. I have definitely realized that I wasn't eating enough protein. After the first 17 days you start phasing in good carbs. I have been really encouraged to see continued weight loss (even better than no gain) once we started adding carbs back in and also after I cheated over easter weekend and have also had a glass or 3 of wine a few times.
I'm also making an effort to get at least 15-20 minutes of exercise in most days. I still have a way to go but I'm only 5 lbs away from my first goal!
