Soul Sister and I are on phase 1 of the South Beach Diet. This means that for the last two days I have eaten nothing but protein and veggies.

The good news is that I have lost 4 lbs since I started eating healthy a couple of weeks ago...so this diet thing seems to be working. Also good news....it's easier to diet when you are constantly texting your teammate to dialogue about what the other one is ingesting.

The bad news is that I might actually murder someone in the next 24 hours for a piece of chocolate. No kidding....would actually use my dinner fork, and with little bits of tuna still clinging to the end of its prongs, I would be perfectly willing to impale whoever happens to be closest to me at the moment to get an M&M or a chocolate covered almond....just one. JUST. ONE.

Old School, who has recently set up residence on one end of my couch, may want to relocate to the safety of the far end of the living room until this little urge passes.

Just sayin'.

Uh, no diet is worth killing someone over. . .plus, I've heard that chocolate is full of antioxidants. It's good for you. Eat some!

Too funny! I need details! I hear about these people who only eat dry tuna and lose, I don't know, 40 pounds. I want to try (not for 40!), but I refuse to try unless you tell me it WILL work. I'm marginally motivated, but I can totally get on board with an obsessive diet. :) Or maybe it's the other way around...

What happened to "everything in moderation?"

I've still been eating whatever the heck I want, but I've been exercising and I've lost weight. Although I haven't stepped on a scale yet. They scare me. All I know is that 4 people in the past 2 days have asked if I've lost weight. Good, right?
