I'm feeling so great and it feels wonderful! I'm stepping on the scale and finally seeing a loss. South Beach is definitely my thing. I knew this, but avoided it. But here I am, almost done with phase 1 and I've lost 5 pounds! I'm not as hu... Read more
So I think this is my 4th day of my third attempt at SB in the last month or two.
Its kind of a good thing that I don't know exactly which day I'm on...it means I'm not quite obsessing or hating the process.
I have a brand-new scale: the off... Read more
I'm definitely finding that any form of carb is suddenly making me crave more.
I was doing fine all day until I had chilli for lunch - the carbs are in the beans, I guess. In any case, despite the fact that it was super filling, it made me fe... Read more
South Beach and Glucose
I'm doing well on South Beach. I haven't weighed myself since I started, because I had a 3-day fall-off-the-wagon bout after 3 days. I started over, so I'm on day 3 today and feeling great.
So I looked through my physiology book yesterday be... Read more
Phase 1, Day 6 or 1?
I've had two bad days in a row now. Darn it. Its those stupid left overs from my brother's graduation party. I knew I shouldn't have taken them home with me. They are supposed to be for my husband, but yeah right.
Shoot! I was almost at th... Read more
Phase 1, Day 4 and 5
So yesterday was day 4 for me on phase 1...my brother graduated from law school and there was a party. I knew of this ahead of time and knew what to expect. And yes, I did allow myself foods that were not part of phase 1. But I knew that this... Read more
Phase 1, Day 3
Again, a great day!
Today I got up, made breakfast (2 turkey sausage links and an egg)...had coffee...a serving of peanuts for a snack...chicken for lunch...a few slices of turkey lunch meat for a pick-me-up...woo hoo! Plus, the sugar cravi... Read more
Phase 1, Day 2 - hooray!
Yesterday was amazing! I feel so good about everything!
Yesterday I had a really good talk with my husband. He doesn't understand why I'm so threatened by other people, especially women. This includes the girls that I go to school with and ... Read more
SP Phase 1 - Day 1...again...
Okay, I did well yesterday, but broke down. We went to dinner at friends and it was tough! Plus, I hadn't eaten all day, which isn't really conducive to this process.
Anyway, I got up this morning, had coffee and an egg.
Lunch: steak salad... Read more
South Beach - Day 1, Phase 1
Its 10 am, so far I've managed to remember not to reach for my neighbor's wheat thin's or malt balls...
So far, so good, but I need to bring a mid-morning snack to school. I am STARVING right now, and that's not the way to do this...so I'll d... Read more
Okay, I'm back. I can't take this anymore! 4 days of splurging and all I can think about is salads and sparkpeople!
But things have to be different, this time: no more obsessing about everything I eat and how many minutes I work out.
I've ... Read more
Day 60 - TAKING A BREAK.
Well, I've hit a two-month mark since I started blogging daily.
What do I have to show for it? Not much.
So obviously this isn't working.
Since it is a 60-day mark, I figured that this would be a good time to take a break and reassess wh... Read more
Yes, another blog: my winning combination
So I've been thinking back over my life (despite the gen path exam tomorrow morning). The only time that I lost weight w/o being on a diet is when I was in the army. For those of you who are imagining me running 20 miles a day, forget about it... Read more
Yet another blog, since I'm still obsessing...
Well, I put together a meal plan for tomorrow. I built 6 meals that are completely feasible and still didn't reach 1200 calories. It looks and seems like I'm eating a lot of food, but not really. Then again, on normal days when I don't plan ah... Read more
This isn't working - going to try something new. Again.
Yup, gained 0.2 pounds and lost 0.5 pounds of fat.
Don't get me wrong, that's just fine. But I need to lose more. I have to. I've been doing this for too long. I've been at around the 170 mark for the last few years.
Its been brought to ... Read more
