i've almost made it. today is my 14th day on South Beach. i'll immediately confess that i've cheated...but it's been minimal. seriously. i'm amazed at my self-control. i didn't know i had it in me. and, as i stated, i'm ok with cheating a little, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone (doesn't translate into relationships, however).
i am excited for my first piece of whole grain bread tomorrow.
days 1-3 sucked, 4 was hard and 5 was unbearable. then i had a lull in hunger until day 13. i don't know what happened, but i was starving yesterday. i went to bed last night wondering if a person could actually eat too much celery. i didn't feel so good. today's ok, but i had to cheat a little at our pot luck....there was yummy spinach dip! and i still stuck to my sugar free puddin' snack for dessert.
hopefully this is a lifestyle change & i'll think more about pointless carbs when i'm eating. i don't know how long phase 2 will last, but it's worth a shot! and i gotta start running again...
