Today we started the southbeach diet again. So far it has been a very boring day full of zero carbs. Well stepping on the scale this morning wasn't boring. It was pretty astounding actually. I think I actually gained 5 lbs over the weekend because I gorged myself, knowing that I would be starting this diet today. Amazing how I can pack it on. Stepping onto the scale on Day 2 is always surprising and a little frightening because usually around 5 or 6 lbs of waterweight slides off that first day. Very strange.
