First Week back on South Beach

heh. I didn't really follow the letter of the diet, but I did follow the spirit of Week 1. I'm been keeping sugar candies and nuts on hand to help avoid real sweets, for instance. I've even had Salad, With Meat on It at least three times for lunch.

Anyway, by the numbers:

I weighed in for the first time after we got back from Texas on the 2nd (as I didn't wake up at home on the 1st, and I'd rather stick to the same scale for measurements).

200 pounds

Which means that I gained back half my original weight loss, by deciding to ignore my diet in Brazil and Texas.

I weighed in this morning at:

198 pounds

In order to attain my goal weight of 150 by the end of the year, I need to lose a pound a week, and not ignore the diet on any vacations.

So far, I'm ahead of the curve, but not dangerously so.

I shall treat myself with a bowl of sugar-free chocolate pudding and a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream. :)
