Cinnamon and Honey weight loss drink

I started Sunday evening.  For those that are close to me when I make a change in my routine, I give it 110%.  I haven't decided to exercise yet.  My brain is saying "yes" but the rest of me is still saying, "I don't think so."

1/2 tsp cinnamon
8 ounces hot water
1 teaspoon honey

Find a container that you can mix an 8 ounce hot drink in.  I chose a pint size ball canning jar (on the side it had 4 ounce, 8 ounce and 12 ounce marks.)

Drink 4 ounces. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the mixture.  As soon as you wake up in morning stir and drink the other half.

This presumes that you don't eat anything after supper and drink the mixture right before bedtime.  In the morning you wait an hour after you drink the cinnamon and honey water to eat your breakfast.

Okay, Monday was my first day and I was hungrier than ever!  That could have been a psychological effect but that was how I felt all day.  I was a good girl and waited the hour to eat, then I had my typical multi-grain toast with a little bit of butter, a lot of cinnamon and a sprinkle of honey.  I was soon starving again.  I didn't have any oatmeal in the house, so I had a packet of malt-o-meal with cinnamon and honey no milk. 

For lunch I had about a cup of cottage cheese with cinnamon and a small bowl of mock crab.  Mid afternoon, I got hungry again.  Dale had bought me a cinnamon roll with maple topping on Saturday evening and I forgot about it.  It was getting a bit hard, the frosting fell off so I left the frosting off and microwaved it for about 15 minutes put a little bit of butter and more cinnamon on it. 

For supper I had two small soup bowls of homemade bean soup. Beans, pork, cabbage and water. I belong to a website called calorie count.  According to the estimated calories for the day were 1084 calories.  I scored a B- too high on the salt and too low on the carbs. Well, the low carbs are my goal so I guess it is okay.

Tuesday morning I was down two pounds from Monday morning.  And I should take a minute to clarify that it is about a week process for this mixture to help you feel full as it is healing the digestive system and helping it to once again properly absorb food.
