To help the weight loss, we did the Dr. Oz’s 48-Hour Weekend Cleanse http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/48-hour-weekend-cleanse. This is the breakfast. It tastes OK.

Hope you enjoy this high fibre and protein breakfast.

Not an April Fool’s joke!! This weight loss resolution is taking a serious turn, I’m making cabbage soup. My poor kids. I visited my mother in law at work with my son. I told her that dinner that night was cabbage soup, followed by “part of the weight loss routine”. An older man nearby responded with “blah, cabbage soup”. At least I am losing weight! Lucky 13 so far….
