Battle of the Bulge!

It's time!  Actually, it is WAY past time!  The Battle of the Bulge began today!  And, the subtitle for this post could easily be, "I'm STARVING!"  :D  I will be going to bed early tonight just so I am not tempted to eat everything in site!

I'm really not enthusiastic about this process, but I have to do something!  My middle is looking like my mother's did.

So, I decided to get started with a crash course type of diet.....The Dolly Parton Diet, LOL!  Here is the cabbage soup from the diet.  Tim and I have always loved cabbage soup!  So, this was not hard to stomach at all!  And, I can eat as much of it as I want!  :D
The pot ended up being about half full after the cabbage cooked down!

I added Italian seasoning and the soup was yummy!  Tim added chicken to his bowl.

This soup is the main stay of the diet which lasts 7 days.  Along with the soup I am allowed to have the following (the numbers represent the day):
1.  All the fruit I want, except bananas
2.  All the veggies I want, particularly green leafy veggies, but stay away from dried beans, peas and corn
3.  All the fruits and veggie I want (as in days 1 and 2) except no potato allowed.
4.  Bananas and skim milk, up to 8 bananas and 8 glasses of milk.
5.  10-12 oz. Beef,  and tomatoes. At least 8 glasses of water.
6.  Beef and veggies, no potatoes.
7.  Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and vegetables.

I also went to Planet Fitness to walk on the treadmill.  Starting out slowly at 2 mph for 30 minutes.  THAT was WAY too slow!  Tomorrow I will kick it up a notch or two!

Looking forward to making some home made V8 juice tomorrow!
