In an attempt to locate our lost waists, my husband, Gary, and I (I being “Tracy”) have decided to once again machete our way through the jungle of dieting.  THIS TIME we’ve decided to follow the path set out by Dr. Mike Moreno in his book,  “The Seventeen Day Diet.”  Through my Machiavellian manipulations, I’ve coerced Gary to do this blog, in an effort to publicly humiliate ourselves toward success. 

We will be reporting our successes, failures, struggles, menus, exercising (sure, whatever), and what we think about this latest diet book.

We are regular people from Michigan who gain weight in the cold, gray winters like Arctic polar bears.  Neither our dog, Emma, nor our cat, Quincy, appear to have any semblance of a weight disorder.  Lucky ducks.
