Long overdue South Beach update

For the past couple of months it's been tough to strictly adhere to the South Beach diet, but I've tried to stick with it's basic concepts. I haven't updated my weight status since mid-April and in that time I've dropped another seven pounds, which brings the total loss to 32.

I don't think that's all bad considering I had a trip to New Orleans and Las Vegas in there where the diet pretty much went out the window.

It's been easy to stick to the basic concept because I don't keep food in the house that doesn't fit into the diet. I've had potatoes in the house once since Jan. 1 and other than some whole wheat hamburger of hot dog buns no bread in the house. I've gotten to the point where if I eat a lot of carbs I end up feeling all bloated and crappy.

The fact that I'm working out like a maniac hasn't hurt either. I'm running seven miles a week and doing weights twice a week.
