emort: a new start

so i am going to start documenting in this journal again to help me get through the first two weeks of this diet. it is going to be rough, and I know that but it will be nice to have a journal/community to vent to. osuchic81 and I start the south beach diet today. So far so good. Here is what I have eaten:

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, and 2 pieces of turkey bacon
Morning snack: low fat string cheese

Here is what I have planned for the rest of the day:

Lunch: Grilled chicken breast, steamed califlower and broccoli, sugar free jello and a V8.

Dinner: not sure yet. Probably a grilled chicken salad or I am going to talk to osuchic81 and see if she has any good ideas.

Dessert: sugar free popsicle

this diet says that you should ALWAYS have dessert because that will help with the after dinner snacking which is the WORST for you. I really really hope I can do this because osuchic81's aunt had great results in the first two weeks. Even 10 pounds in two weeks would be awsome! Anyway I have the book and I read it on the shuttle just to modivate me and get me moving. Anyway better get back to work. Bye all!

As far as a suggestion for dinner goes, I switched your lunch and dinner. Lunch Im having a chicken salad and then dinner I think Im gonna have either chicken or grilled salmon (which I know you hate LOL) and broccoli. So Im not much of a help. If you make chicken I would add garlic and pepper to season since we arent supposed to add sugar or salt (like a topping would or you could use a lowfat salad dressing (i have raspberry vingrette) that would be good on chicken. I read this diary on about.com and it was cool to see this ladys daily results. The first week will be the most difference.

yeah thats a good idea. i usually dont use salt anyway, so that is a good thing. one less thing I will have to give up :-) It is really going to be hard at work because there are always people popping popcorn (as we speak) and offering sweets and everything. At least at home I can control my enviornment but here I cant. Maybe if we get together tomorrow we can discuss more meal options ok? Talk to you later

Yah, like I said let me know your plans and stuff.. How is today going for you so far? Im kinda hungry and I just ate lol... It sucks cuz Ihave to wait for my snack til around 3... My aunt said the first 2 days she was hungry but after that she wasnt.. I guess Im used to filling myself with carbs and not having them I definately notice!

yeah i am definatly hungry since i ate breakfast before 7 and had a cheese stick about 10:30 so I am definatly getting there. I think that some of my co-workers and i are going out to eat at a restaurant so i will see if I can get something in the diet.

good luck with that! I think its gonna be hardest to go out... A salad with vinegrete dressing is prolly the best way to go...

yeah that is what i was thinking.

Good luck! I tried it too...I would suggest staying away from sugar free candies w/ sugar alcohols, they really upset my tummy! :)
