The appeal of the south-beach diet for me, at first, were all the stories I'd read of the quick weight loss in the beginning. In that regard, it did not disappoint, I lost 6 pounds in the first 2 weeks. Pretty good! Over my 3rd week, wherein I've been reintroducing more foods into my diet, I've not lost any.
I'm glad I've been using the nutrition tracker! I've got some idea what to tweak to try and get the scale moving again. Not that a week with no change is really such cause for concern. I wasn't home for 4 days, and didn't have my morning weigh-in to assess what impact the food changes were having. So I'll keep working on it, and see what needs to change in order to keep losing.
I am seriously getting tempted by those white carbs though! Baked potatoes to go with dinner for my family last night, and I made bread this morning since we ran out. Oh, the mouthwatering oven-fresh home baked bread!!! That was rough, but I know better. It smelled good, and that's as far as I went. I'll definitely need to look up some whole-grain bread recipes, and pick up some new ingredients at my next grocery shopping trip.
I did the circuit training routine today and yesterday, it's so nice to get back into it. I thought my dad had some free weights I could work with while I was there, but he only had 2-pounders, not very helpful! I know I will only keep feeling better as I go along, getting stronger and better able to hit that workout!
