Not Carb Loading

Juannie and I are back on South Beach diet phase 1. This is the no carb, no fruit, no caffeine, no alcohol portion of the program. It lasts for two weeks. So far, Juannie has lost 15 pounds and I've lost 8.5. The last time we did serious South Beach we both lost around 40 pounds.

It makes me cranky, well crankier. I miss tortillas so much. I want a nectarine. Last night, I had a dream that I was at a pasta bar with every type of noodle and sauce to choose from. This was certainly prompted by the birthday lunch I attended for a co-worker yesterday at Venezia, an Italian restaurant that's a New Orleans institution. While everyone else ate lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parmagiana, I munched on my Caesar salad.

Only three more days left of this phase. Come Monday I will celebrate with a wheat tortilla and a diet Coke!
