Losing Weight

I've decided to buckle down and start losing some weight.  It's amazing how fast weight can creep up on you.  Days turns into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years, and the next thing you know you've gained 20+++ pounds. 

I've lost 5 pounds this week thanks to the South Beach Diet plan.  I've cut out all bread, pasta, sweets, and alcohol for the next 2 weeks.  Basically, I've stopped eating!  Well, it seems like it and salads have taken up most of what has been deleted.  I've replaced my diet cokes and occasional glass of wine with water and also added walking for 30 minutes a day.  The only exception I made to the plan was to splurge and eat "real" food at the end of the week and to start my weekend.  Although I did come off the diet for a second, I was very conscious of what I ate and how much I ate so I did not overdo it.

So, I'm ready to begin my second week of losing weight.  Stay tuned...
