Starting the New Year

With the New Year finally being here, it is time for me to start the new diet and see if I can't achieve a new me this year.
Because of health reasons, I have had to cut out all wheat products (breads, cereals, pasta etc) and most fruits. I have fructose malabsorption.
I have also cut out all caffeine and am reducing my intake of sugar. I am was a massive Coke drinker. I could easily get through up to 6 cans a day.
I am now five days caffeine-free and surprisingly have not had any withdrawal symptoms. I am trying to drink as much water as I can, but am finding always needing to go to the bathroom extremely annoying.
I am proud to say that I have already dropped 1kg (2.2lbs) in the past five days, so hopefully I can shed the 10kg (22lbs) that I need to.

Has anyone else started a new diet this year? What are you doing? How is it going?

I bailed on the diet today. Not good, I know. But I needed to get something quick for lunch (first mistake was not making a lunch or bringing snacks). So I ended up at the corner cafe by work and ordered the only thing I knew that they had (was to lazy to view the menu - 2nd mistake), Poutine.

French fries, cheese and gravy.

I'm not very happy with myself.

I've promised that I'm not watching my weight this month, being its December and Christmas etc. I'll be happy to at least maintain my weight and NOT gain any more, but this was just a blantant failing on my part. I've got to be stronger than that!
