94.9. So Far So Good....

Wow! 1.6kg in a week. I'm feeling so good right now. Not because I lost that amount of weight but because I was able to go without rice for 5 days. Remember I  mentioned in my last two posts that I was advised to give the South Beach Diet a shot? Well, I kinda tried it and it's not easy going on such a diet in my country.

The thing is, most of our staples are found in the high carbs category. Rice, Yams, Cassava, Maize.... the list goes on and on. So the challenge is to get creative when preparing meals in order to relieve boredom for the first two weeks of the program. I've been creating interesting meals with eggs, lean meats such as chicken, various vegetables and legumes such as beans.

Anyway, I tried to exercise for at least 30 minutes each day and I missed only a day of exercise because of the pain in my left foot (Apparently I hadn't been placing my foot on the clutch well; I'm a driving newbie :-).

Oh my, I can't wait to reach my first goal for the year. 2.3kg gone, 2.9kg to go to 92kg. My nails really need the reward. :-)


  1. I love my carbs too! :) I think they're hard to get away from. Sounds like you've been doing well. Excellent!

  2. Wow, that's great! Well done on the weight loss this week.
