i'm not going to lie, not having chocolate sucks. i love chocolate.
two weeks ago, i started the south beach diet. i hate calling it a diet, because really, it just has helped me eat better. the thing is, south beach makes you cut out chocolate (and everything fun) for a while. by doing this, i crossed another thing off the list.
then it makes you really eat a lot of this kind of thing.
it has been a good thing. i've lost 6.5 pounds in two weeks and i feel stronger and healthier than i have in a long time. since september (when i started the race to a waist) i've lost nearly 14 pounds. i'm so happy about this! i've also been working out in some form (the shred, kickboxing, walking, treadmill) on a more regular basis. i think from here on out, i'm going to enjoy my beloved reeses peanut butter cups only once in a while and not every chance possible. :)
