A New Me!

Well, I have decided to go on a diet! I am suspose to keep a journal so I decided to do it here so all of you can share my journey. When Lynda was here I guess she and Jim decided we should all go on a diet. I am a little disappointed because I thought when you get to be 60 that was one of the perks - you don't give a damn about how much you weigh. But I really would like to tie my own shoes again, as long as that doesn't mean I have to give myself pedicures. I would also like to walk through the mall and not huff and puff.

So we are all on the South Beach Diet!!!! I'm probably not going to read the book because I already know if I like it; it's probably not on the list. If I love it; it is definately not on the list. Anyway, I am going to ease into this.

First day: No breakfast (nothing unusual there) Just a big gulp. Lunch: Jim brought home some delicious carne asada and salsa. He just had his on a plate, but that seemed a waste to me so I had mine in tortillas. Yummy. Dinner: Jim barbecued fish and added broccoli (yuck). I ate it but was still hungry so I had some more carne asada with tortillas. Not bad. In the morning I lost 1 pound!
Wow! It's working.

Second day: No breakfast, just a big gulp. Lunch: The carne asada was gone so I stuck some Velveeta in the tortillas and nuked it. Very good. Dinner: Steak (OK, not a fav) green beans. I ate it but was still hungry so I made Jim go to 7-11 for a refill and a package of Hostess SnoBalls. So good!!! I also had a ice cream bar (I'm trying to clean out the freezer). In the morning I gained a little, just a half pound. Soooo, I am now down 1/2 pound! Yeah, it is beginning to be bearable.

I'll post my skinny pictures!

You crack me up! Velveeta and tortillas and SnoBalls??? Ok, I know I'm blonde but can you eat that on the South Beach Diet? If so, sign me up!


Looks like you diet like I do. Something about sugar is irresistible. Maybe the fact that it is delicious!

The snow ball diet? I love those things. Something about them brings me back to being a kid. Can't wait to see the skinny pics!!! We are trying to cut back here and it is a struggle. I try not to bring any tempations in the house, this way in the middle of the night there isn't a cup of ice cream with my name on it with whip cream on top. :)
