Weight loss - not losing it

Ug. I have been working out for weeks now. Nothing. Been dieting too... nothing. Not one pound. Ug. I was just eating better, you know, more fresh fruit, more veggies, no fast food, no dessert. I do cardio now at least 5 days a week.

I don't know why no weight loss, but I have decided to change things up. I started South Beach today. The new plan involves lots and lots of veggies, lean meats and low fat dairy... oh and nuts too. No fruit and no bread for the first two weeks. If I do that and workout, maybe then I can lose at lease one pound.

So this might be boring, but I am going to keep a list of my workouts and what I ate on here. Here it goes...

Workout - 30 minutes walking on the treadmill - 170 calories burned and
- 18 minutes on the Arc trainer - 175 calories burned.
Total calories burned - 345

6 ounces of low sodium V-8
Three eggs with one slice of low fat cheddar melted in and cut up tomatoes

Pre-lunch snack
2 Tbsp of Peanut butter
5 pieces of celery

Romaine salad with Tomato, Almonds, Low fat Asian dressing and Chicken

Afternoon snack
1/2 cup of Low fat Cottage Cheese

1 Chicken Breast
Black beans
Sliced Cucumber with Low fat Ranch

Here's to hoping this freakin works.
