South Beach end of phase one....

So today marks the first day of phase 2 (YEAH FRUIT) I started phase one at 173 pounds and ended phase 1 at 163 pounds. So I lost 10 pounds in the first 2 weeks. Now comes the tricky part of phasing back in carbs and sugars without over doing it! I have to admit I am excited for fruit and the occasional piece of bread but I think I could still survive okay without them. So on to the next phase. I'll be on this one until I reach my goal weight which is 140....

Week one round two!

Okay so last night at 11:59pm ended week one of South Beach. A couple bumps along the way and I've had to modify breakfast just a little bit but at the end of the day it all seems to be working.... so I started on Monday at 173 at the end of week one.....drum roll please.......................................I've lost 7 pounds!!!! Holy Moses!!! If I keep up like that by the end of week 2 I'll have lost 16 pounds. That's CRAZY!! Motivates me to stick with it though. Even though it's hard. We went hiking at Mt. Baker yesterday and with the heat I think I might have burned more calories than I ate!! Felt a little tired last night and today the muscles in my legs are letting me know I used them!!! Feeling good this morning. Working for the next 3 days so this should be interesting! fries!!! :o)

It's day 6 and I'm still going....kinda

Okay okay I admit it I cheated this morning! I had a waffle with peanut butter (the waffle part is a no no) BUT I figure if that is the only cheating I do then I am good. I am not an egg person. I don't care for them, I very rarely eat them and the thought of eating another egg this morning made me want to gag. So I did the waffle. We'll see if it makes a difference in the morning. I did control myself last night though. Was very hard. The family had pizza....ooey gooey warm and yummy smelled so good I stared at it the whole time I was eating my salad pizza.... way to torture myself huh?? But I didn't have any! Not even a bite!! YEAH ME!!! (anyone watch suit life???) Anyway, yesterday was my hardest day by far. I was sorta in the downy dumps and was just about to throw in the towel but I didn't and I'm still going (waffle aside it was whole grain if that makes a difference....) anyway weigh in on Monday we'll see how I'm doing then!!!
