In my previous post I mentioned that I lost 17.5 pounds over the past nine weeks. Fabulous! I need to say that at the outset I never planned to endure an insane restrictive diet. I eat well, and I continue to eat better. I have shifted my diet toward the foods everyone knows is better - fruits and vegetables and less saturated fat. I eat just a little bit of dark chocolate almost every day. I'm not a diet freak. I recommend a walk (of course!) to Vosges on Spring Street in Soho.
