Well, it's week five of my Ideal You Weight Loss & Wellness Journey, and I am happy to report that I have lost right at 20 pounds!  That's an average of 4 pounds per week!  I have never seen such great success with such ease on any other diet. After  this weeks weigh-in my coach, Sheryl,  had me lift a 20 pound weight, talk about a reality check!  That was  lot of extra weight to be carrying around!  It's no wonder I feel so much better and have a lot more energy!  I couldn't do it without the support of my coach.   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! :D

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.

Asparagus Guacamole

Asparagus Guacamole

Looking for a healthy, good tasting salsa or guacamole replacement? Look no further. Try this with the BBQ ridges or the salt & vinegar ridges. It is also a great meat and vegetable dip. Would be wonderful with marinated, chicken or beef skewers. Delightful, with a zing.

1/2 can jalapenos
1/2 C. onion (sweet)
dash nutmeg
