Phase 2.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Phase 2 of my south beach diet experiment. Unless i wake up tomorrow and have magically excreted 3 pounds during my sleep, the diet's boasts of '8-12 lbs in two weeks!' is a lie. I have followed the diet almost to a T-- and I have only lost 6 pounds. Max. Whatever south beach.

I'm really looking forward to some carbs and fruit tomorrow. I almost had a panic attack after I took communion at church today and then realized that it's bread and fruit juice. But I figured I couldn't really get away with spitting the body and blood of Christ into a napkin so I swallowed it and prayed that holy carbohydrates didn't count against me. I guess we'll find out.

Though my soul may set in darkness,
it will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
to be fearful of the night.
