Bouari? Heard of It?

Have you heard of Bouari? I hadn’t. And even today as I was walking into the clinic, I didn’t have a clue what they offered or how they were going to help anyone lose weight.

Here is what I learned, however. If you’ve heard of the HCG diet then you’ll have a head start on the concept behind the Bouari Diet plan. Basically, Dr. Bouari worked hard to create a homeopathic version of HCG. While the original Bouari clinics offered the HCG diet, they now recommend their proprietary formula instead. Purportedly, you get the same results without having to inject or injest hormones – many times animal hormones.

So here’s the scoop – I will begin taking the homeopathic supplement this weekend and during the first two days I eat anything and everything I want. No, for real. That’s what they told me. Something about fooling your body into NOT flipping over into starvation mode. Then I cut my calories pretty extremely. I was warned the first two days of low caloric intake will be a struggle, but then I won’t be hungry and the weight will fall all off.

The idea is that your body is trained to burn the fat that it has stored up as fuel.

I do have to admit that it was nice to hear that they didn’t think my goal of 20 lbs. was the best idea as they felt I didn’t need to lose that much! Their typical results are much higher than that, so I may not need to follow the protocols as strictly or as long as others would who are looking to lose more weight. But I will share each step of the way with you.

My first visit was a brief questionnaire, a meeting to discuss the program and my questions, then a weigh in and picture taking session. Today I weighed in at 154 lbs. Here are the pictures they took:

  1. Like you...I have NEVER heard of Bouari...until now.
    I plan on following your progress during your HCG/Bouari diet. Good Luck, even though I don't see why you are dieting, you are thin enough. Seriously!!!

  2. I've been on the Bouari plan for 3 weeks and have lost 11 pounds so far. The pounds are falling off almost effortlessly at this point. I really like the coaches and am not having any difficulty with a borderline vegetarian diet. In fact, I'm finding myself forgetting to add the protein via meats/fish/poultry.

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
