South Beach Diet - Our second weigh in, a trip to Trader Joe's, and moving in to Phase 2!!

Hey everyone!
My brother and I have successfully completed Phase 1, and have moved into Phase 2. Our second weigh in showed a loss of 10 total pounds for me and 13 total pounds for him!!

Since we have moved into the next Phase, we decided to take a trip to Trader Joe's for some whole wheat breads and such. We came across some sourdough bread that has cheese incorporated, and has 7 grams of protein per slice! And very delicious! We also got some whole wheat homemade tortillas, and something similar to triscuits to eat with our Laughing Cow cheese.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Awesome Pheebs! I am just transitioning onto Ph 2 as well and just a tip: be careful you don't add to many things in all at once. I believe we're supposed to add in one new thing a week.

I did the same thing and went out and bought yogurts, triscuits, cereal, etc. and then when I got home realized IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME A WHILE TO EAT ALL THIS! =)

Good luck!

Congratulations Phoebe! Don't ya love TJ's? I prefer their ww tortillas to the mission brand by far, but they were out last time I went. :( I usually don't get down there more than once a month, because it's about 30 miles away.

Thanks everyone!! Yes Trader Joe's ROCKS!! I wish they had more of them around, ours is about 30 miles away too. Almost to Seattle LOL. But it's wayyy worth it.

I am so glad my brother and I are in this together, otherwise I'm sure we would have both fallen off the wagon without each other and peaced out to jack in the box for a cheesburger LOLOL. We have improvised and one of our new favorites are turkey mushroom melts, which involves a turkey burger, a slice of fat free cheese and olive oil sauteed mushrooms and onions, and you layer it all on a huge piece of lettuce and enjoy!!
