Day 1 without sugar

Journal Entry #1

Attempting South Beach diet facsimile. Husband says I am "smokin'", however, my jeans say "release me." 2 weeks without sugar or grains or even fruit....all in an attempt to break my sugar addiction. After the two weeks of torture, I'm on to whole grains and limited sweets....as if Reese's Peanut Butter cups were meant to be for special occasions and not breakfast. Whatever.

Weigh in: 139 fully clothed, the highest non-pregnant weight I've ever been.
Withdrawal symptoms: (on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "Sugar? Never touch the stuff" and 10 being a trip downtown that ultimately leads to my lethal injection).....I'm a 2.

So far....so good. I haven't killed anyone. Barely even growled. I think most of my human contacts throughout the day assumed I was a normal person without any deep psychological issues. However, from past experience, I know that the veneer wears thin around day 3. Best to cancel my appointments rather than risk a padded room.


*For the record, it's really not about the weight - it's about me being too broke to buy new jeans. The South Beach diet is cheaper than new clothes. The scale just makes it easier to stay on the diet because I can see numbers moving.

But, like, they make a cereal out of Reese's Peanut Butter cups and everything.

Good for you.
