We have moved from phase 1 to phase 2 today on South Beach Diet. I lost 9 pounds in two weeks and Steve lost 10 pounds. Rachel and Megan did well too, but I can’t remember their exact losses. I must say it feels good to be in control of my eating again. This diet is wonderful for my diabetes (which I had been in denial of up until a couple of months ago). I would love it if my insulin levels would stay within a good range and maybe down the road I won’t need medication.
I made up a new recipe yesterday that we all enjoyed. I call it “Greek Meatloaf”. I used ground turkey and added some small pieces of fresh spinach and some feta cheese. I used a couple of eggs, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and a couple of TBSP. of Chavetta’s Italian dressing. About 10 minutes before it came out of the oven, I drained a can of petite diced canned tomatoes and spread them over the top. We had fried mushrooms and zucchini latkes with it. It was a fantastic meal, and I wish I would of taken a picture, but I was too hungry…LOL
I am heading to the basement to workout on our Gazelle Freestyle Trainer. Megan bought it when she lived in Cape Cod and says it is too big to haul to Canada. I like it because it is low impact and you can set your own speed. It is elliptical and it is one exercise i don’t mind too much. Of course I can’t do it for very long yet, but a little is better than none. :o)
