Day 3

It's day 3 of South Beach and I'm hating life. I really want some chocolate right now and a banana- covered in the aforementioned chocolate. And maybe some of that toffee that Christy gave us the recipe for. Can I just say that I think I look fine and I don't care about a diet and call it a draw? Travis said I can. I love my husband. Maybe I'll feel better about it in the morning.

Okay, I totally understand and I totally know that it's miserable, but...DON'T QUIT!!! Even if it were a miserable failure of a diet...you can't quit. Sugar feeds cancer and other ungodly, anti-temple building problems. You don't need that stuff.

I know you won't quit...I do hope you feel better tomorrow.

Sweet hubby you have! Hope tomorrow is better for you :)

Mary said it in a much more blunt way than I had planned- but it's a good word. I was going to say something like, "you DO look great but I know the diet isn't just about pounds but about the *type* of food you eat". So, as long as your motivation is more than weight- keep at it dear friend.

Oh- and I conquered the bad voices... I'm back to stevia and soy milk in my coffee! Yay!

I would like to formally apologize for waving that toffee in your face. It isn't *that* good :) Chug through the first week, girl. You'll feel so much better once you have done that much!
(but....you do look fabulous just as you are - I've always thought so and I still do)

Well, thanks for the encouragement ladies. That was a good word Mary and I felt better sleeping on that than if I'd eaten chocolate.

And yes, I'm eating healthier and I'll be healthier which should be a big motivator in itself. But let's be honest, I'm a girl and I get way happier over a smaller size jeans than I do about whatever is going on inside that I can't see. Now, if I could go for 6 weeks without getting sick...that would be a motivator too.

I actually read somewhere that every time you eat a sugary meal (I guess that would be dessert or probably a soda) it compromises your immune system by 50% for hours afterwards. Reading more might motivate me too.
