I need a cheeseburger. Or a pizza.

Over the Christmas holidays I ate. Not excessively at any one point in time - gluttony is not good - but I did eat often, and more than normal, and richer foods.  So, I'm doing my gastronomical penance now - I'm dieting.  I'm not doing the full on Atkins diet, but I have drastically reduced my carbohydrate intake.  No potatoes, no rice, no pasta and no flour (bread and baked goods).  I've done it before.  About 10 years ago I did the same thing and I lost 33 lbs. in 6 weeks, and I'm not a big guy.  In fact, I went down to 155 lbs.  So it worked.

I remember waking up one night at about 2 a.m. wanting to go to the kitchen to make a lasagna.  But after about a week, the cravings went away. I'm hoping that this time it will be as effective and that the cravings will fade.  I've been dieting since January 30th, and I've lost 10 lbs.  That's not bad but I am soooo craving pizza and a cheeseburger right now.

Nevertheless, I do have perseverance.  You'd probably know that if you've been reading my blog over the last three years...
