I think I need a happy hour, a thought courtesy of Buck over in Exile.
For the last four to six weeks or so I've been dieting. I've cut meal portions own to about a quarter what they were, and I'm not snacking constantly anymore, save for a 3pm somethingorother. In that short 6 week stretch, I've managed to lose about fourteen pounds, and I feel pretty darn good. After the fourth week the hunger pains really went away. That's the good news. The bad news is that if you're of a similar mind, it's going to suck for about four weeks.
Anyway, part of the whole thing is staying mostly away from carbs. Those are my downfall, I'm a carb junkie. I still have a couple things, perhaps half a bagel for breakfast and maybe a glass of milk or something with dinner...
Unfortunately avoiding carbs means avoiding beer. One of these days, very soon, I'll lift the sanction and partake.
They Might Be Giants said it best: Beer is liquid bread, it's good for you!
