so today i met with the dietician (or is it dietitian?) and guess what??

I LOST 8 LBS IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS!!!! (ok, so i gained 2 lbs water it WOULD have been 10lbs total, but oh well, i'll take it!)

and i was wrong. i cannot stay on phase 1 of south beach for more than 2 wks. i have to start phase 2, immediately.

so...this means adding some fruit and some whole grain carbs into the diet. and that makes me excited.

so...the rest of today? i have to go take teddy (and stella to get checked over) back to the vet to get his skin issue checked out. i started the weaning off of the steroid, and, he's started scratching, i'm not pleased but i'm sure the doctor will say what's what.

i hope the good news on a friday continues.

AWESOME!!! Congrats! I bet you are really looking forward to fruits and carbs.

I so need to be more strict on my diet. I have a lot to lose, and I am slacking.

Great job on the weight loss! I SO need to get back on South Beach!

Both of our dogs have skin allergies. Maggie has been biting at her foot so much, it's bleeding and she's limping. Teddy's belly and sides are bright red. Prednisone is our friend! Except Teddy can't have much because of his heart problems, and Maggie shouldn't have any because of her Cushing's disease. I just hate to see them so uncomfortable.

Again, congrats!

FYI, it's dietitian. I can only say this with certainty because at the hospital I just left the ACTUAL DIETITIAN had it spelled wrong on her nametag. I called my favorite asian and she told me the correct spelling. I knew something was afoot.

Congrats on the weight loss... keep it up!!!

Congratulations on the weight loss! I started Jenny Craig four weeks ago. I've lost 6.8 pounds and 3.75 inches! Yippee!

Btw, I'm getting ready to write out your questions for the interview meme. Check the comments in that post on my blog shortly! :)
