To get directly to the point, Mama and Daddy and I are doing well on our South Beach Diet. Daddy has moved into phase 2 a little early, because he felt sick this morning (please pray that he feels better) and Mama and I think he needs some extra nutrition to get well. Besides, he works hard and burns much more calories than us ladies do. :)
We have all lost weight... Daddy has lost a couple pounds, Mama has lost several pounds, and I am down from 160 to 156.8. :D Now before you gasp, let me remind you that I'm quite tall ( 5'9"... ) AND Dutch. :D So.... I'm built strong, (am strong) and not twiggy, but I do not look heavy at all. :) Thank goodness. :) However, 156 feels way better than 160! :) I am hoping to get into the 140's.
Mama looks much slimmer! :) I will have to get her to post a picture of herself on her blog so you can see what she looks like now... and I may even dare to post one of myself here in a few days... :D
I AM missing my desserts.
... and fruits.
But overall - I am not feeling desperately hungry, quite comfortable, actually... and this diet has been fun and interesting so far. :) We'll see what happens in the next few days...
Oh, and for those of you who are keeping tabs, you will notice there are much more things in my Etsy Shop! No doughnuts yet though... I want to take some more 'artsy' photos of each individual doughnut with a matching background and props, for the main listing pictures. But those will be forthcoming soon! :)
Thank you for all your lovely comments! I am delighted with the new readers I've had! Welcome, Ya'll! :D I am planning on coming over to visit your blogs soon! :)
