South Beach Diet: Day 1

People say that I’m not fat. My husband shut me up if I go into a long monologue about how I need to diet and how I don’t feel pretty anymore. I think, women oftentimes go through this phase, and they go through it a lot. We are worried more about getting fat than not finding mr. right. I think I am going through this phase of wanting to look better and wanting to look great.

I am 139 pounds. I am 5 feet and 4 inches tall. I am a medium and my UK size is 10. I have normal BMI. I’m not overweight. People don’t really consider me fat. I think people would see me as someone with a normal built. Even if this is so, I still want to go on a diet and want to shed off some weight.

Recently, my dad and sister went through this diet. My dad lost 10 pounds in two weeks and my sister lost 6 pounds. I think I would be happy with ten pounds, but more would make me happier. Before I started, I wanted to understand how South Beach worked. I browsed through this site: South Beach Diet

Now, who would make my meal. Basically, our household help went through a cooking class for South Beach. This was a class by 25 Mushrooms Kitchen. You can visit their facebook page.

So great, now that you have all been oriented as to how I am, now let me take you through this journey.

Breakfast was not bad… not bad at all.

This was breakfast, and I was not being sarcastic about my comment. It was scrambled egg with cheese, spinach and mushrooms mixed into it. I thought it would not last me until lunch, but it did! I had my breakfast at 7am.

For lunch, i had grilled chicken breast with vinaigrette mixed with tomato and basil. It was again so delicious. I had lunch at 12 noon. At around 2, I had a little bit of a headache. It is very important to hydrate. I think I was a bit dehydrated during that time. I bought lite greaseless peanuts for my mid-afternoon snack. I just had a few, since I was busy working.

At 6:00 pm, I wanted to go out for a run, but just couldn’t. I felt weak. I just went home and rested. I might jog tomorrow morning though. Dinner was lean meat with an amazing tomato based sauce with mushroom. I ate at 8pm. It is now 9:30 pm and I feel pretty weak. I think i’m still not used to this diet. I’m too tired to think. I think I better rest.
