entering the limited-carb world

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...
