After spending nearly 6 days at Disney World, and walking 794 miles, you would think that I’d have lost a little weight.
BUT YOU WOULD BE WRONG!
Because Disney World serves Churros, my friends. Little carts line Main Street, and kindly vendors will hand you one of these long fried morsels of deliciousness covered in cinnamon and sugar.
AND GET THIS! All you have to do is hand over money to receive one. Or 27.
So now my stretchypants are feeling a little snug. And my willpower has not only left the building, but the country as well.
And you know what that means.
It’s time to go back on South Beach. Phase 1. Since Phase 16 doesn’t seem to be working for me.
I’ve written about the South Beach diet before. In between child #2 and #3 I lost quite a bit of weight. But after packing on 50 plus pounds with Junior, and still carrying around a bit of baby weight (the baby is almost 4), it’s time to do it again.
I started Phase 1 last summer with great success, at about the time Jensen was diagnosed with severe food allergies. And after the diagnosis, I started eating everything rice and potato based right along with him.
But look! It seems that Rice and Potatoes are a carb! And carbs in massive quantities are not my friend.
Because I like to garner sympathy be transparent, I will document my weight struggles on this blog. But I wanted to get a consensus.
Who wants to do it with me?
C’mon, it’ll be fun!
If enough of you are game, I’ll do a little Mr. Linky thing on Fridays so you can share your failures, success, recipes, tips, or extreme displeasure that I even suggested this in the first place.
Of course we should weight wait until after the first of the year because that’s what everyone does. Resolutions. Whatever.
Let me know if you’re in. And if you’ve ever lost weight on The South Beach Diet.
And if you’re worried, it was written by a REAL doctor, it is a healthy lifestyle of eating, AND the recipes are wonderful. (You can check the cookbooks out at your local library.)
AND it does allow chocolate in Phase 2, which follows Phase 1 (2 weeks). Caffeine is allowed in all Phases. Otherwise, I would have chucked the whole thing out of the window.
Have I sold you on this yet?
