3 pounds gone!

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I cheated. This morning, after 3 days on the South Beach Phase 1 diet, I weighed myself. To my surprise, not only had I lost the two pounds I gained over Christmas, I'd dropped another pound! Now, I recognize that water weight can really wreak havoc with your weight, but I had not weighed less than I do today in years. It's encouraging news after plateauing for months.

Maybe I revved up my metabolism? Maybe this cold I've been battling for the last week curbed my appetite? Maybe three days on a low calorie diet after all the holiday treats was a zig when I'd been zagging? I have no earthly idea. Still, it's a good feeling to know that I'm only 16 pounds from goal.

I still have 11 days to go on South Beach Phase 1. I'm glad it's having the desired effect of jump starting my weight loss before I return to my regular eating plan.
