Well I'm still alive and kicking on the diet. It's working very well for me. I haven't really been hungry at all and the shakes seem to have a lot of potential for variety. Last night I used one of the approved recipes to add Jello to the shake which tasted really good. I've also managed to keep up with the exercise and went to the YMCA last night after work.
Today will be a strange schedule as I've been called for Jury Duty. Guess I get to see how the system works today. Just hope I don't end up being a odd man out juror like in 12 Angry Men. I do have stubborn tendencies.
