If I Seem Cranky Over the Next 30 Days, This is Why....

Have you ever Googled weightloss or heard of programs that promise you'll lose like 800 pounds in a week if you do these simple little tricks?

Well, a few weeks ago my husband brought home a packet that he got from someone he works with who has apparently lost about 50 pounds in two months of following this thing.  I'm always super skeptical of any of these diets and have thus, never even attempted one.

But my husband and I want to lose some weight and for the sake of curiosity, have decided that we're going to give it a try to see what happens.

The diet is four weeks long and is extremely strict.  (From what I can tell, if it tastes good or if you've ever craved it in your LIFE, you cannot have it.)  I'm going to follow this diet exactly (and trust me, this will be painful considering my love of chocolate) AND will be blogging about my progress to keep you amused informed.

So, here goes nothing!  (HELP!)
