After much reading and research, I decided to start the Mayo Clinic Diet today. It's not the Mayo Clinic Diet from the 70's where you ate eggs, bacon and grapefruit. This diet reminds me of the old diabetic diet that doctors used to give patients to lose weight. For the first two weeks on the plan, you can eat all the fruits and vegetables that you want. I made it through the first day fairly well. I'm keeping a diet journal. It has helped a lot. I hope that I can be successful. One good thing is that the Mayo Clinic Diet has a blog.

I also started trying to get my appearance back in shape. I normally take very good care of my skin. While I was laid up, I washed my face twice a day and that was it. Not much moisturizing and no makeup. I decided to start using Clinique moisturizer to perk up my complexion.

I have been wearing LL Bean Bayside Twills for the past three weeks. I've been rotating navy, black and khaki. Tomorrow, I'm going to wear Pendleton wool slacks and a blazer. On my feet will be my trusty old yellow and silver Nike's.

Maybe with practice, I'll be back to myself.

I hope everyone has a good Tuesday.

It is so hard to get back to the A-Game! After I had my son I thought I would never be my old self again!

It takes time and energy but we are worth it!
