Finished the four week program - YEAH

Today is officially the end of the "4 weeks to gorgeous skin" plan.  I have totally found a life-long program.  Why I waited until almost my mid-forties to start taking care of my body and skin is beyond me.  I looked through the photos and I can't really tell a difference in them, but when I look in the mirror, I can totally see a difference.  Plus, when I put on my make up, it seems to look fresher and more youthful.  My skin is still very oily, but not as bad as before.  I don't think I am going to post the photos on line (do I really want to post all of my imperfections for the world to see, with no make-up to conceal the flaws??), but I will show them to my sisters to get some insight into the improvement of my skin.  I am still going to keep the photo journal for the "before" and "after" when I get the hydrafacial. (This Tuesday and I am so EXCITED!!!) It will be interesting to see.

I lost 8.4 pounds in 4 weeks doing this program.  That averages to 2.1 lbs per week, which is a very healthy weight loss.  This is quite amazing since I had three different servings of ice cream....YESTERDAY, not to mention a bag of popcorn and McDonalds for dinner.  It was a treat filled day, what can I say!

At first, I couldn't figure out why they didn't just have us do all the stuff right at the beginning, rather than wait it out week by week, but now I understand.  Doing everything right from the start would have probably been overwhelming.  I think I needed the week to get accustomed to one thing before introducing something new.  Whatever the reason, it worked and I will continue doing this forever.  I feel better and I think I look better.  So, even if no one else notices, I notice and that is good for my confidence. 

I can't wait to share the results of the hydrafacial.  9am on Tuesday!!!  I will take an immediate photo before and an immediate photo afterwards.  Then, once my face calms a bit, I will take another photo.  These, I may share, depending upon how dreadful I look.  (I don't take a good picture as it is, so imagine how awful it can look with NO makeup)  No matter what, I will show them to the sisters again and see what they say.  I'll let you know.


  1. Cant wait!!!!

    Good for you for finishing the 4 weeks. I have tried doing it but seem to cheat during the weekends. At least I am eating better though.

  2. Wow, I'd like to know your weight loss results after another month. Post the pounds.
