Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Growing Older, Getting Better, Weight Loss

Another week, another report. Well, last week was two weeks of being on South Beach Diet. I lost 7 pounds. I’m happy but the book says people lose 8 to 13 pounds on phase one.  Screw that. I’m still happy about the weight loss.

South Beach Diet claims that you will lose body fat first in the stomach and they got that right. I hope that continues.

Last week I went to the gym twice and walked 4.32 miles uphill on the elliptical cross trainer. I thought I was going to die with one routine but persevered. I didn’t feel like Rocky Balboa but felt a sense of accomplishment.

I am battling a cold/sore throat so I don’t have the energy right now but I’m sure to be feeling better soon. I treated myself to a pedicure.

Now that I’m on phase two, I can eat more food choices. However, I have chosen to be on the austere side of choices. I’ve only added oatmeal, red wine, apples, blueberries, plain yogurt, and nonfat milk. I went out for coffee but watched my friends eat toasted bagels. I’ll be eating more soon enough.

One thing I have noticed is when I eat the low glycemic way, I don’t have spikes of eating desired and feel fuller faster.

I’m eager for this month to be over as it’s been a tough one.

  1. My name is Tigran and I am posting this because I know what it’s like to be over weight and feel your life spiraling out of control. I was almost 360 pounds, struggling with my health and looking for a way out. Seriously, I would have done almost anything to make a change in my life. And I did, with very little success. Pills, therapy, even working out were getting me nowhere.

    No matter what I tried I never really saw a change because I could not stop my love of eating. It’s so hard for people to understand when they haven’t faced this struggle. Everyone just says that you have to will power. But if you are like me, you know there is much more to it.

    I realized I was holding my life in my hands and I made the decision to find a way out of my self-inflicted nightmare. After years of struggle and countless nights studying the ins and outs of exercise science I finally stumbled onto a Fat Loss program that caused me to lose 143 pounds and still allowed me to enjoy the foods I love. This is nothing like what you have done before. Fat Loss program changed my life and I could not believe just how easy it was.
