It really does work!!!

Most of you know I have been on Weight Watchers for a little while now.  I have had some success, but like all weight-loss programs, they only work if you work them!!!!  

During the holidays, I definitely slacked on my program.  Indulging in sweets, good wine, and rich foods did not work on my program!  But I'm okay with that.  I will not beat myself up.  Today is a new day.

Needless to say, I felt yucky and bloated after all of this indulgence.  I remembered reading about a detox drink on Pinterest that Jillian Michaels recommends.  I though I'd give it a try.  Let me tell you, it really does work!!!!  

I drank this little concoction the first week in January, and I lost 6 lbs in a week.  Now I realize it was primarily water weight, but I felt sooo much better.  Less bloated.  Less sluggish.  It worked so well I decided to give it a try the first week of February.  I am now on my 3rd day of 7, and the same results.  Less bloated.  Less sluggish.  Re-energized!

I am NOT a doctor, or health care professional.  If you choose to give this drink a try, please check with you doctor first.  If you are taking any medication, I think it's imperative you check with your doctor. Your results might be different than mine.  I think if you feel bloated and yucky, it's worth a shot. 

All you need is 60 oz. of distilled water, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tbsp. sugar-free cranberry juice (not diet as there are artificial sweeteners in the diet), and 1 dandelion root tea bag.  Drink this throughout the day for 7 days.  

Allegedly you can lose 5-7 lbs in a week.  Keep in mind it is probably water weight.  I lost 6 lbs the first go-round.  We'll see about this time.  Your results might be different than mine. I did not change my normal eating habits.  I even drank a glass a wine the last time, and last night I had a beer.  

If your feeling a little bloated, maybe your jeans are little bit tight, give this a try.  I was a skeptic, but thought "What can it hurt?"  I was pleasantly surprised, and I think you will be, too.  (BTW, I tried to find the original post on Pinterest to give credit, but was unable to get to it.  If anyone knows, please share!)

Make it an awesome day!
