In a word: Fine.
I'm having a hard time getting all my calories in, mostly because I am totally disinterested in eating.
I miss sweet coffee beverages that I don't have to make myself, because there pretty much isn't anything at Starbucks (or RaceTrac or QuickTrip) that I can drink.
I have figured out that 1 Packet of Truvia + 1 Packet of Sweet & Low = 99% as tasty as two tablespoons of sugar. Both sweeteners have big hollow spots in their flavor, but these two complement each other pretty well. I suggest you try it.
Overall, I'm actually enjoying the diet thing. It's occasionally hard, like when Marissa (Jeremy's girlfriend) brings her "famous" pasta salad to the labor day shindig, or Nancy leaves a bag of Sour Cream & Onion potato chips (my favoritest) laying on the counter, open, smelling awesome; but mostly it's nice to have a concrete set of parameters to follow instead of a bunch of nebulous principles to consider.
Apart from the the fact that I can't even have ONE of those potato chips, it's easily something I could do for a long, long time.
