I decided I had become too big a sugar addict and needed to go on a diet. So I decided to do South Beach because in the past I thought the food was great. I started yesterday at 198.4 lbs.

Today I was at 195.4. I know it is all water, but that’s part of the loss. The book says you will lose 8-13 lbs in the first two weeks. I’d be happy to lose 8. If I lost 10 I’d feel about done. 🙂

Had pretty big sugar cravings yesterday, and they aren’t totally gone today. They say they last about 3 days. I’m looking forward to them being gone.

The food on phase 1 isn’t as good as phase 2. But I’ll stick it out for a couple of weeks or 10 lbs.
