South Beach Diet Update

I hope that you're having a good Tuesday.
So today is Day 2 on the South Beach Diet & I'm hoping it gets a little easier than yesterday! I have to admit it has been tough but if I made it through the first day, I can do anything!! Yesterday, I had 2 deviled eggs & 3 slices of canadian bacon for breakfast, 3 slices of lean lebanon bologna with 2 slices of reduced fat american cheese for a snack, salad with light dressing and a string cheese for lunch, for dinner I had a chicken breast with asparagus & for dessert a sugar free jello. I plan on eating pretty much the same things today, just changing my snack to turkey pepperoni & string cheese & dinner is in the crock pot.. chicken with zucchini. I have noticed that at about 5 PM I crash, I'm so tired & grumpy. But I just grab a small snack & I feel better. They say not to count your calories but I am trying to lost 25 pounds by February, so I have still been logging my calories on Spark People & sticking between 1200-1500 calories. I actually feel really good today, I wasn't bloated when I woke up & I'm not nearly as hungry as yesterday. I really hope the next 12 days fly by. Plus I weighed myself & I'm down close to 2 pounds (I know, water weight!) but that keeps me motivated. I just keep chugging unsweetened tea & snacking on cucumber slices. By the way, I got a new veggie slicer & cut the shit out of my finger this morning, well at least the blade is sharp!
Let me know if you have any questions about The South Beach Diet, I'd be glad to help!
