Trisha’s Ideal You Weight Loss & Wellness Journey-Week 4
Well, it’s week four of my Ideal You Weight Loss & Wellness Journey, and I am happy to report that I am down another 2 pounds which puts me at a total weight loss after 4 weeks of 17.3 pounds! That was a little less that I was expecting, but after weighing in and visiting with my coach, Sheryl immediately recognized what I had done after checking my daily food diary. I had mistakenly been eating 2 foods that were restricted to once per day, and it actually inhibited my weight loss. Had I not been keeping that journal and doing my weekly weigh-in with Sheryl, I may have been discouraged and possibly even wanted to quit in my past dieting experiences. Sheryl is very encouraging as well as knowledgeable which has certainly helped in my success so far with the program.
Each week I get a new recipe to try which also helps keep things interesting. If you’re like me, eating the same thing day after day gets really boring and can lead to straying from the diet.
That actually brings me to another point, this will be your LAST diet. Because Ideal You is a lifestyle change rather than just a diet. Yes, in the beginning you’ll have to make some sacrifices, but in the end, you will have a new found way of eating that will help you maintain your weight loss for a lifetime! I can’t wait for that!
Keep in mind that every Tuesday there is a educational seminar from 11:30am-1:00pm, so you can get any questions you might have answered before you try it.

Until next week, here’s a recipe that is delicious and welcome on the Ideal You Program. Enjoy!
Take 1 large Rutabaga, peel and slice into “pinky” size strips. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and add seasonings you like (I like garlic salt and pepper). Lay out on a baking sheet and bake at 400-425 until browned. They will not “crisp up” like regular fries but rather have a consistency like McDonald’s fries.
