Tomorrow, June 26, 2017 is my first day of the 21-day-detox at The Camp Transformation Center, in Pittsburgh, Pa.

I decided to complete this detox because I wanted to pick up on my weight loss goals. I have been practicing moderation (read more about my story as a thick girl in these previous posts Everything in Moderation: the story of a thick girl Get Your Body Back Foolishness: the story of a thick girl) but in order to reach my initial goal to lose 30 lbs. by August 30th, I needed to add more to my workout and healthy eating regime.

I had been following others who have gone through the 6-week-challenge at The Camp, (learn more HERE) for the last few months. I was interested, but could not afford to sign-up for the program. An Ad crossed my screen that there was a special for their 21-Day-Detox for only $21. I felt that I had no choice but to take the opportunity.  

21-Day-Detox Process 

The Mandatory Presentation took place on Wednesday, June 21 2017. This was a time to ask any questions we had in regards to the program, to pay the $21 and get up-and-coming information on what the next 21 days would look like. We were told to change our Facebook profile pictures to this image: (so if you are following me, this is not scam, it is real) 


Here’s what I got:

  • A proven nutrition plan based on whole foods. This is NOT a starvation diet!
  • 50-Page detox manual (and our 2-page “quick-start” guide)
  • Grocery list
  • Dozens of fun, tasty recipes
  • Coaches who care
  • Enter to win 2 months FREE boot camp training! 

Important Dates: 

June 21, 2017 – Sign up
June 23, 2017 – Initial Weigh-In/ orientation
June 26, 2017 – First Workout and Detox Start
July 17, 2017 – Final Weigh-In

How I am feeling: 

I am feeling excited, motivated, anxious, pumped, nervous… so many emotions, but overall, I am ready for this new journey. 

Although I am a firm believer in loving your body and feeling beautiful, no matter your size, we must constantly journey toward a healthier life. My journey begins tomorrow and I cannot wait to share my progression and results with you. 

Meal Prep:

We were told at the initial weigh-in that we need to go grocery shopping, clear our homes of any foods that can tempt us to break our detox, and to meal prep for the first week. I decided to do a juice fast for breakfast and lunch my first 3 days, so I will begin my real meal prep on Wednesday, June 28.  





What is to come:

I will be posting every day of this detox and tracking all that I do throughout the next 21 days, including recipes, self love affirmations, deep breathing exercises, and a daily gratitude log of 5 things I am grateful for.

Follow me to see my transformation. 💪
