The No Booze Cruise to Lose!

The deprivation is paying off - Vicki is down 9 lbs and Norm has lost 9.6 lbs in 9 days.  Our shorts are now too big and our belts are a notch tighter.  No need to buy new wardrobes, though, as we have smaller size shorts that haven't been worn for awhile - quite a while!  Two more weeks to go on the strict calorie-restricted, no alcohol diet  Then another 3 weeks on the no-starches maintenance diet which does allow a small amount of alcohol  -- key word "small".  Then a lifetime to eat sensibly like we used to before indulging in the cruising life.  That will be a challenge, but we'll be motivated by never-ever-ever wanting to do this diet again!
