Holly, you've been losing darn well!
After doing a lot of research, I decided that I wouldn't do phase 1, but instead follow the phase 2 stuff within my WW points. I'm still not ready to handle "eat until you're full" so I need the WW portion control. Surprisingly, today I haven't been able to eat all the points I am allowed, and I've even had nuts and peanut butter today. I've eaten one fruit, with a meal, and one whole wheat tortilla (made a wrap with eggplant hummus and a bunch of veggies for lunch), and those are my carbs for the day. Regular salad dressing is still a bit scary for me. It's interesting that the low-fat kinds have so much more sugar, although the light balsamic vinagrette I normally use meets the South Beach guidelines.
Sheila, thanks for the offer of recipes. I believe I'll take you up on that!
