Good morning everyone!

I posted already on the JC forum, so I'm going to copy and paste what I wrote there because it was rather long and I have to get to my exercise. lol

This has been a fantastic weight loss week for me. I lost another 1.2 pounds from yesterday for a total loss this week of 3.6 pounds!! Now, I know some of that is that water weight gain (1.4 pounds) I had put on from Christmas, but I'm still jazzed about it. Aside from starting my walking DVDs on Monday, the only other thing I'm doing differently in the past 3 days when I've had the most loss is drinking one glass of lemon water (the juice of 1/2 a lemon with 6-8 oz of filtered water), 1/4 tsp of organic cinnamon and 1 tsp of manuka honey every morning. I know that lemon water alone helps to aid in weight loss as does cinnamon, but I remember reading that manuka honey is also beneficial for so many things and read a few posts in other forums of people using it in this combination to speed up their weight loss. I wanted to post about this when I lost a pound after doing it the first day, but I thought it was a fluke. Then I lost another 0.6 the next day and 1.2 the next. It can't be a fluke now, can it? I'm going to continue this for a while to see if it keeps helping. I know it can't hurt because all those ingredients are healthy for us. I make up for the 60 calories from the tsp of honey by drinking unsweetened almond milk for my dairy: twice the calcium and 2/3 the calories of non-fat milk, saving me 60 calories. If anyone decides to try it for themselves, I'd love to know what your results are, too. It's one of those seems-too-good-to-be-true things, but I can't argue with the results since my diet is basically the same foods each and every week and my walking DVDs have NEVER given me that quick of a weight loss before either.

Medeis, 12 hour shifts stink! I hope you're at least able to get up and walk around every 15 minutes or so.

Have a great day everyone!

Lost my first 25 pounds on my own and the rest (so far) with Jenny Craig

If you hate starting over...STOP giving up!!!
