Since I was so sick last week, I completely forgot to post the results of my 6-week (plus one class) Zumba "diet." In the seven weeks that I cut high fructose corn syrup out of my diet and went to Zumba class once a week, I lost a total of 12 1/2 pounds. Granted, I probably gained a few of those back last week when I spent the entire week zombified on the couch. However, I have now upped my exercise regimen to two Zumba classes per week and I walk on the treadmill at work when I have some spare time at lunch. (That usually ends up to be about 15 minutes per day, four days per week.) I'm still trying to keep the HFCS out of my food. With any luck, I'll be down a total of 20 pounds by the end of the year. No need for the best weight loss pills for women for me! Good ol' exercise will do the trick. I'll be sure to give you another update at the end of the year.
