I got up that morning and went on the scale. My wide opened mouth as I saw the amount of weight that I had gained. After I was done weighing myself, I ate a big breakfast. I had learned somewhere in an ebook that a big breakfast boost the metabolism. For breakfast I had two scrambled eggs, a baked potato, orange juice and green tea. I took some time to read the morning paper while I waited for my food to digest. I took a walk for half an hour up the hill near my home. The incline was good for my heart rate. Later during the day, I had a drink of aloe vera juice. I heard that it enhanced weight loss.
I did not go on the scale this morning. For breakfast I had two scrambled eggs, oatmeal and toast. I had a small meal at lunch, one between lunch and dinner and then another one at dinner. Smaller meals during the day helped to increase my metabolism and I was able to burn more fat. I drank two glasses of aloe vera juice that day. I took another thirty minute walk, but this time on my treadmill at home. I used some dumbbells during the exercise as well as weights on my ankles.
Day Number Three
I ate another large breakfast this morning. I decided to have a body wrap done instead of walking. A friend of mine owns an holistic business and I had called her the night before to make an appointment. The body wrap is intense, I must warn you. It last for one hour and it makes you very, very hot, but it is worth every minute. When I finished my body wrap, my friend weighed me in and I had lost 10 pounds altogether since I last weighed. That was so exciting to know that I was making progress. Today I drank 2 glasses of aloe vera juice.
The Fourth Day
I did no exercise today. Due to the soreness of my muscles, I could not walk. I ate mostly fruits and raw vegetables along with oatmeal for breakfast and had lots of water to drink. I made sure to drink some aloe vera juice again. Man, did I go to the bathroom umpteen of times! I didn't like this part. But I was on a mission.
Today was the day of reckoning. I had my glass of aloe vera juice in the morning with a smaller portion of breakfast. I took a thirty minute brisk walk up that steep hill again wincing in pain at the soreness of my muscles. I was certain that I would do this. I took a shower and then went over to my friend’s holistic center again to do another body wrap. I got on the scale again and saw that my weight was now 183 pounds. I had lost 15 pounds in only five days! What an accomplishment.
It took five days of exercise, a balanced diet that included some natural foods, two miracle body wrap and the support of my friend to get me down to fifteen pounds lighter. I can finally fit into my clothes now and don’t have to buy new clothes.
