South Beach Diet - The "On Plan" Thread for the Week of 11/16/09

11-17-2009, 09:15 AM
It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan!

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.
Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

Week 2, Day 2, Phase I
B: scrambled egg beaters with LF cheddar and glass tomato juice
L: salad (mixed greens, tomato, red onion) with homemade olive oil/red wine vinegar dressing and LF feta with some sea scallops
S: mixed nuts
D: not sure yet, went grocery shopping today yet still feel like I have nothing!
Going to try a hot cocoa recipe for dessert after dinner!

Trying to figure out how to keep on track when working... I go in about 7am and dont like to get up early. Was thinking about pre-making a big batch of scrambled eggs with chopped vegetables (bell peppers, onions) and dividing it into servings to just heat and serve when i get up.

Laurie, :congrat: on your mini goal!!!

Heidi, :congrat: on already making your Christmas goal!

I'm having a week of trying not to fall to OP temptations-too many triscuits is a big one for me. I prepped up my fav salad fixins yesterday which really helps. Much better to have an extra salad that jump into the triscuit box!

Today is knitting with the Church ladies-always goodies, but I think I'll take SF Hot Apple Cider for anyone who wants and that should resolve my temptations there.

Phase. 1.5

I think I am going to go Cottage's route and put away my scale for a while, its just too frustrating. I'll see if I can discipline myself by just staying on plan.
take care

I was going to make my stuffing for TG using Ezekial Bread. Now my Sis is coming and she has gluten intolerance. She does eat spelt and has made a stuffing using spelt bread in the past. If we buy spelt bread from Whole Foods is it SB friendly as long as it complies with our sugar requirements?
