This South Beach thing is going surprisingly well. I've tried Atkins a couple of times but always gave up after just a couple of days. I know I'm not too far in yet (finishing up day 4), but so far, so good. Haven't actually had cravings *too* bad yet (knock on wood). I was kinda craving some sweets yesterday, but just had some non-fat greek yogurt with some SF raspberry syrup and a splash of vanilla and that more or less nipped it in the bud. I *am* looking forward to getting back some chocolate, though! I kind of miss Dr. Pepper and I don't care much for diet soda, so I'm not sure that I'll drink that. Mostly, I think I miss the cold and fizz. I've been drinking a crapload of water every day, but I might also get some seltzer water or something and mix in a splash of SF raspberry syrup and a bit of lemon juice.
My rings are starting to loosen up a bit and I've dropped a little over 4 pounds so far. I know it's water weight, but it's still progress and it helps keep me motivated to continue on. Not having a ton of energy yet, so I'm holding off a bit on getting back to running. I'm just too tired to really do it right now. I ran on Monday and thought I was going to die after I got started on my second jogging session (I was kind of doing a bastardized C25K). To keep track of the daily weight loss (just for sh*ts and giggles), Day 1 - 2 lbs, day 2 - 1 lb, day 3 - 1 lb 4 oz. :)
