Day 4 of the South Beach diet:

All is well for both Hubby and me.  I've lost 2 pounds and hubby has lost 4.  Probably water weight, but that's ok, it's weight anyway.   Hubby is 6'5", so he will lose pounds faster -  No need to be envious or competitive.  I'm actually thrilled for him!  And for me, too, of course..  Cheers to all! 

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 16 lbs to go!

Hey Selina,

Just thought I drop by and say hi and to let you know that Im back. Im going to try my best to post every day, even if it is just my foods and activities. Honestly, Im kinda tired of writing my feelings down, especially since they've been the same for the past year and a half. So Im just sticking to the basics until something good happens. My main goal is to record my choices on a daily basis to see if it will encourage me to stay on track (and help me see some physical results).

sweetpea1977 on 06/09/2009:
haha, I wasnt finished commenting yet. I hope things are going well for you. Even though I wasnt posting, I've been missing your entries. :)

Hi all! 


Sorry I've been absent - I have no good excuses to be away, just that I was lazy and didn't feel like writing foods down.   Anyway, all is well around here.  My husband said he needs to lose some weight around his waist and wanted to go on the south beach diet.  He happens to have lost about 15 pounds before in the course of a month doing that diet.  Back then, I had all the food delivered to us for a whole month (a small fortune, but it was worth it) but this time around I bought the book and am cooking and following the recipies myself.  Since I am doing it for him, I might as well join him, so this is our 3rd day of the diet.  I am not a diet fan but we both can feel the benefits already - besides, this strict regimen is just temporary and 2 weeks of no carbo will go by quickly.   Anyway, the foods are quite similar to the ones I normally eat, anyway, so no big change there except for the smaller portions and lack of carbo.    Will keep you posted about the results.  Cheers to all!

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 18 lbs to go!

i love south beach! i think its a really good way to compromise for a typical "diet"...good, healthy foods! I hope you have success and thank you for the birthday wishes. xoxo

thinnside40 on 05/27/2009:
I did the South Beach a few years back and enjoyed it..The H/A 3-4 days in wasn't so fun, but finally the withdrawls subsided & I eventually took off 26#'s.....

BEST to you both!

I was too busy to log in this weekend... which went past so fast and in a blur.  But I do remember going to a fashion show and a concert on Sat night and ironing 21 shirts for my husband on Sunday afternoon, while watching 2 movies in a row.  A mix of feeling glamourous and "domestic" over the weekend...  Dietwise, I guess it was OK, nothing spectacular...

Monday's menu:

Coffee, jam on english muffin 300

Snack:3 crackers 50 (350)

Lunch:oatmeal 250 (600)

I love the domestic/glamor combo! Its my fav!

thinnside40 on 05/18/2009:
Do you wear an apron too?..... It gives me a whole different feeling about cooking/cleaning/being doemstic... and it does feel a bit old-fashioned glamourish too.....

Have a great evening!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/19/2009:

Hi Maria! I hope you are doing well! Yes, it was great that my husband joined me the other day in my walk!

Thanks for reminding me about your blog... I've been there a couple ot times but, as I told you before, I can't read your entries. The blue background makes the green letters glow and I can't read the entries without straining my eyes.... Have a great healthy day.
