We started the Atkins Diet a week ago yesterday. Well, Vince started on Monday but I had just made a cherry pie so it took me a few days to finish that off before I started the diet. Vince hasn’t cheated . . he’s lost a great amount of weight in one week. Me . . . well, the cherry pie was my first downfall. Worse than the cherry pie is that I love to eat good food while traveling. One day we ate at a Vietnamese restaurant and I had Phat Thai:
The noodles definitely don’t figure in well on the Atkins Diet. The sauce was kinda sweet and heck . . I drank a Dr. Pepper too. For dinner, I thought about having sushi. That works on the Atkins Diet and maybe I could redeem myself after all those noodles and Dr. Pepper at lunch. I was headed towards the sushi restaurant when I saw a policeman. He was busy writing parking tickets so I figured I’d just interrupt him from his job and asked him if he knew anything about the sushi restaurant. He didn’t know anything about the sushi restaurant but he recommended a Thai restaurant.
I don’t think the breading on the calamari is too good on the Atkins Diet either! And my main dish had rice! I did drink water instead of Dr. Pepper so that has to count for something . . right?
When (if) you diet, do you lose all self-control when out of town? I do! I blew it but I’m back home and back on the straight and narrow.
