Another great day on The South Beach Diet!

So yesterday was sort of off kilter for hubby and I, our schedule was way off, due to a visit from my lovely stepdaughter and grandson (he's 16 months old). So our meals were eaten later then intended but they were eaten and followed to a tee.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything I put in my mouth yesterday, it was all delicious. Breakfast consisted of an omelet, I put peppers (green, red, orange, yellow) onions, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, Canadian bacon, shallots and a quarter cup of cheddar cheese (no fat or sugar in this cheese), I put water instead of milk and had a glass of V-8 juice. It was good eaten LOL!

Now for lunch I was hesitant I don't normally like salmon unless it's either breaded or covered with mayonnaise or some other sauce. But hubby was getting restless with my menu (he doesn't grasp the concept that money helps with creativity in the menu department)so I took out the salmon and spiced it up (I'm not rich in spices) I put Montreal Chicken Seasoning on it (what kills me is I saw Montreal Fish Seasoning the other day and didn't buy it for a $1.00) and a ton of garlic powder. Hubby chopped some fresh garlic and put it around and the smell was wonderful. I served it with veggies and salad and it was soooo good I could have eaten it again for dinner but hubby would have none of that.

Dinner came around and it was getting late, no need to fill our tummies too much when it's now past 7:30pm so I grilled some chicken with my famous Montreal Chicken Seasoning and we had a salad with balsamic vinegar dressing.

It was all delicious. I'm not much of a cook, I don't have a passion for it like hubby does but the reason why I don't let him cook is because he will secretly add ingredients like butter without me seeing and then I'll wonder why the plan isn't working for me. So this is better, I have total control over what is going in my body.

Now, I know I'm only supposed to weigh myself once a week but I couldn't help myself, I had to this morning and I was down another 3 pounds!!!! so that's 14 pounds since I started this plan on the 17th. Not too bad, I guess this is the only advantage of being morbidly obese, you lose weight faster in the beginning. I haven't weighed 285 in a long time, in a year I think so that's good. But I'm not settling for that no way, I want my goal of 150 (140 if all goes well).

I live in a 2 story farm house on the top floor with my hubby and pets, below us are 2 gentlemen that live there (but they are not a couple) and one of them works at an organic health food store and he can get me my fresh veggies for $1.00 a bag. So that's great! That'll save me and hubby a ton of money. Sometimes I even get freebies, I got 10 Roma tomatoes the other day for free, no they weren't perfect looking but they were still good and free so we've been eating them in salads and such.

I promise not to weigh myself before Saturday morning because I have an event Saturday night so I'll want to see at what weight I'm going in at so I can compare it on Tuesday (if I don't weight myself Sunday that is). At first I was a little scared about going to an event (AA banquet) but with the South Beach Diet I know what I'm allowed to eat and what I'm not, so I should be more then OK. I'll concentrate on protein, veggies and salad (watch the dressing) and no bread, no fats, no potatoes, no pasta etc. I can and will follow the plan and thank you God because I'm not craving sugar!

That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by!

so happy you are doing well with the plan. I did a healthy version of Atkins the first three months and had great success of ridding myself of cravings and losing a lot of weight ;)...it's similar to South Beach
