I'm so over South Beach.......

Friday, June 01, 2007

Seriously, today was day 4 and all Ive been thinking about is FOOD! What can I eat next, when can I eat next, etc. It's like when I do the points system on Weight Watchers! I quit!!!!! My husband and I had chicken thighs (yes, people, THIGHS!!!!!) with bulgur (a carb!! OMG!!!!!), hummus, baba ganoush, kalamatas, whole wheat pita, and white wine for dinner. You know what? It was really, REALLY good!!!

I'm going to do this on my own, with the help of SP. I can and will be able to manage this.


SBD, Phase 1, Day 1

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Well, today is my big 1 of SBD. I have really been looking forward to this new beginning. I weighed in this morning (265....highest in over a year...ouch!) and took some body measurements. At leaast none of the numbers will ever be that large again!

Tomorrow I start the South Beach Diet. I'm looking forward to it. I've been at such a standstill since Mom died. Well, I guess it's not a standstill since I've gained about 20 pounds. It's more of a backslide! I know it's normal that an emotional eater would turn to food upon the death of their mother. But it has still been frustrating as well as frightening. I do NOT want to end up back where I started or even heavier. So, I'm excited about starting a new program.

Hubby just said to me, "You mean there's no cereal on phase 1?! What do I eat for breakfast?" I reminded him that I was the one doing this. He is under no obligation to give up the refined carbs. He was quite relieved then began pouring honey on his bowl of sweetened cereal............he's so cute!

  HONEY on sweetened cereal?? LOLOL!! I can see why he was so concerned :) I am so sorry, though, about the loss of your mother. I gained lots of weight when I lost mine, too. It's not surprising that we'd respond to such grief as we did, and I hope you'll start to remember more happy memories rather than the pain of loss. That takes so long, doesn't it, and at everyone's own pace. And so maņana is your first day "on the Beach," as they say in the commercials? Good for you!!! This time, we'll both do it.

Wow! I'm finally getting around to setting up my Spark Page! I like seeing the ticker. It shows me I'm about halfway there, even after this setback. Makes me feel good.

Today was Awards Day at school. I usually wear jeans to work, but needed a dress or skirt for today. Luckily, I tried things on yesterday. NOTHING fits. I'm now a 20....again. :-( I started as a tight 24, was in an 18....THIS close to shopping at "regular" stores. Oh well. No use beating myself up. I have a plan for getting back into the swing of a healthy lifestyle.

Why is it so easy to go back to unhealthy habits but so hard to go back to the healthy ones?!
