I looked down at the scale, and my lips curled into a frown. I had given birth five weeks ago, and I was barely down seven pounds. Sighing deeply, I moved to the bookshelf and retrieved the diet book. Guess it’s time to pull up my big girl pants— literally—and do this.
I flipped through the pages and found the information I was looking for: low-carb cleanse. It had worked before, so I purposed to stock my pantry and fridge with the required items and follow the plan. I couldn’t wait to see the pounds melt off.
Five days later, I skipped to the scale expecting to see big results. As the number appeared, my mouth dropped in horror. What was wrong with this thing? It hadn’t budged!
