I’m starting a new diet today. I’m a excited and a little nervous, and really scared of failing. I’m sure a lot of you (if not all) have heard about the Omni drops diet. I, being a serial dieter (and not a very successful one) and one of the biggest offenders of seeking out those “magic pills”, of course had some curiosity about this miracle plan.(I mean the most recent attempt can be found here and by recent I mean last week!) Long story short, I got married, got pregnant, got older, gained 50 pounds in 5 years. Yes I want to drop that weight, and no I don’t want to work extra hard to do it. Before you start yelling at me and judging and telling me the only way to get it off and keep it off is diet and exercise, I will tell you that I believe that and completely agree. But I’m not going to lie to you, I’m lazy. By lazy I mean ridiculously busy and try as I might, I have not been successful at fitting a workout routine in my schedule. After the first time something comes up and I have skip it, which always happens with work, family, and small children, I end up losing my motivation and quitting. I have tried, and failed, over and over again. I need something that makes a difference I can see relatively quickly to keep my motivation for the long term. That is just how I roll. Why am I telling you this? I’m telling you because curiosity has gotten the best of me again. I’ve decided to give the Omni drops diet a try.
I know several people that have been very successful with the Omni drops diet and after a ton of skepticism, and even more research, I’ve decided to give it a fair shot. (And by research and thinking it through, I mean I’ve been looking into this for over a year now – it was not a decision made lightly or on a whim.) It’s kind of expensive by my standards (and my standards are as close to free as possible for just about everything) so I figure if I spend the money, I have to at least see it through for the first 21 days right?
I must say I’m excited and hopeful, but I’m not naive so I do have some lingering doubt in the back of my mind. Doubt about the program itself, and doubt about my ability to actually adhere to the strict food regimen that it entails. As you can see from the title of this post, my initial goal, which all the literature and research say is a totally legit goal on this program, is 20 pounds in my first round of “dropping”. More would be awesome, but I don’t like setting myself up for failure either. Plus 20 pounds would get me under the 200 pound mark which would make me ecstatic because that’s a mark on the old scale I haven’t been able to get below for probably 4 years now (and keep it there for more than a week anyway).
Now this is not a “weight loss” blog, and I’m not planning on turning it in to one. It is however, a blog about a real people, a real family, a real mom and wife that’s gained too much weight, and real products that real people use (good or bad). So I figured if I’m going to take this leap, I’d share my experience with you so maybe if you’re considering something similar, you can make an informed decision from someone who is not selling the stuff (ain’t nobody got time for that!). Stay tuned for updates as I move through the phases of this diet and we’ll see where this journey takes us.
Have you tried Omni? What was your experience? If not have you considered it? What kept you from giving it a shot? Let me know in the comments below and thanks for reading!
