Yes, I am on a diet, which is why my posting in the last month has declined. I am just not eating at as many restaurants as I have in the past. I have gained 5 pounds every year since I left college, and this year, I decided to reverse the trend. I gotta get rid of the beer belly I am developing. I honestly never thought that I would go on a diet. I tried going to the gym more often and it did not work. I tried just controlling how much I eat....HAHAHA. That sure as hell did not work.
Anyway, a week ago I decided to try the South Beach Diet. Avoiding french fries and other fried foods has been extremely challenging, and so far I have been successful. I think the hardest part of it all is that I can't have any alcohol. With my job being as stressful as it is, and my love for a good glass of scotch or red wine after dinner, it has been pretty tough. So far, I have only lost a couple pounds, but I have this feeling that this week I will start losing more.
I hope this post does not bum people out.
