Almost done with Phase One

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Well hello everyone! I've just been wiped out with this cold. Seems like the older I get the more colds just knock all the energy out of me. Fortunately I think I'm at the tail end of it and looking forward to a great weekend.

Last Monday I had lost 9 pounds on the South Beach Diet phase one. I'm now thru Thursday (almost) of week two and still doing pretty good. I did slip a bit on a couple of days but nothing too bad and I got right back into the plan. So 3 more days of phase one and I hope for another 5 or 6 pounds but I am very confident I will be lighter next Monday than I was last Monday.

Maybe that should be my goal - just be a little lighter each Monday - great way to start the week!!

Not much to really blog about since my focus is on my consulting project - did I mention that I have a project going on that will take me almost through April? If not I do - and it is taking a lot of time but I love it. I miss my old profession but alas will probably be my last project in my old professional world. Time to learn something new.

Well I have to go and catch up with all of you. So keep your focus and keep doing the right things the right way - it's the only path to success!!!

    WTG on sticking with you plan no matter what!!!
Being ill does tend to fog the brain, but you have cleared the skies and moved forward.
Now that is the Vandal that I know.

Vandal. Great job keeping up with your South Beach. I think this way of eating must suit you well. As for your profession. Have you ever thought about teaching it? I don't exactly know what you do but everything needs to be taught. Possibly to seniors, if appropriate or at a community or high school level. Maybe look into that to keep you busy and tied to your work at the same time.

    You are doing great with the weight loss!

Know what you mean about the pleasure of work . . . I too would hate to give it up.

    Congrats on the awesome weight loss! That's just great. Can't wait to hear your report on Monday.

I was on the South Beach plan once a long time ago, but alas I think I gave the book away. Sounds like it might be a good way for me to re-jump-start my weight loss. But I'll be reporting my weight on Tuesday, so we'll see.

Glad you are enjoying the consulting job and sorry it will end. How much time does PM have until she retires? Then you two can ride off into the sunset! (I guess technically it would be "sunrise", since you'll be going east.)
