Ok I started Jan 2. So I have officially finished week 2 of phase two.

My only add ins have been non instant oatmeal for breakfast (3 times a week).

1/2 a sweet potato last Sat ngiht

1-2 Glasses of wine each night

Run your food through fitday and measure that wine. According to Fitday a glass is 3.5 ounces. My glasses hold about 6! I'm a wino too and find I cannot budge the scale when I have wine.

All I can think is it must be the wine. Although I thought everywhere I read that wine was ok? I'm going off of it for a few days and hopping in the scale again Friday to see if it made a difference. Phase two is so freaky for me. My husband keeps loosing like a champ. It's so not fair.

Don't freak out, you'll settle into a routine with the WL, how much do you have to lose?

Men, that's not fair. Good that he is losing though.

I was 136.5. (Jan 2 - start date)
After Phase one 129.5 (Jan 16)
Phase two end of week one 129.5 (Jan23) not too nervous
Now 130.5 (Jan 30) Eeek!

Ideally I'm most comfortable between 120-125.

It's all just so scary.

My husband lost 15 lbs in phase one!
He lost 2 more lbs in phase 2.

The thing is, I am ok with the South Beach diet eating concepts for the rest of my life except for my wine. I do love my wine. I enjoy all the low carb foods, and I love vegetables and salads so it hasn't been a hard diet to follow.

I am wondering if you will lose a little more slowly because you don't have that much to lose? How much weight does your husband have to lose? I know my bf drops weight SO quickly, we did Atkins like 6 years ago, while I lost about 10-15 pounds.. he lost 30!!! Men! heh..

I don't mind losing slowly. I do mind gaining though.

Men - It's just not fair!
