South Beach Diet Karma?

So I've been slacking off reading blogs this afternoon and everywhere I look, someone is either going back to or starting fresh on the South Beach Diet. Coincidence? A sign? Is someone trying to tell me something? I'm not even searching for SBD blogs or websites, I was just randomly reading blogs that I usually read and then clicking through their random blogroll links and I'm not even exaggerating when I say that at least 4 other people have blogged in the past few days about the SBD. The diet Gods are trying to tell me something. Try South Beach! You already have the book! It's structured and focused and GLUTEN-FREE FRIENDLY! I've done Weight Watchers, I've counted calories, I bought the SBD book years ago when I still ate wheat and thought carb cutting was advice straight out of the devil's mouth. Here I am, rapidly expanding and clearly not counting calories because it's just a huge pain in the ass and then I'm reminded of the good old SBD. I've become an advocate of the low-carb lifestyle so why wouldn't I give that book another glance? Whenever I dropped by Karina's site and saw that her most recent post was about south beach I nearly fell out of my desk chair. It's kind of like when I realized I had gotten up to almost 220 pounds and then all of a sudden they started up a Weight Watchers at work program. Right now I'm at the weight I was at when I finished that program and so this is as good a time as any to change it up and start something new. I have to do something. I can't even look at myself in the mirror, and for someone that typically loves being in photos, I have been hiding from the camera. No longer an option! Must make a change! 46 days left until the wedding!!! I wish I was going home tonight so I can start reading the book again, but I have that boat cruise to go to. I'll have to throw it in my work bag for tomorrow. Nothing like reading diet books on the red line.

well if it is any consolidation I am not doing SBD! LOL!! I had good luck when I did it back in 2003 though. Once I got past the first 2 weeks and could eat fruit again! ;)
