South Beach Diet - Tomorrow marks phase 1, day 1...
01-02-2011, 11:34 PM
I am ready. Back to the beach I go....;)
I went to the store and bought foods to last me the week and beyond. Plenty of veggies, beans, soups, low fat cheese, nuts, and lean proteins.
I packed my lunch for tomorrow--lots of veggies. In fact mostly veggies, mixed in with some lunch meat, hummus, and low fat cheese.
My family is on board--they aren't going to eat on plan, but they have my back.
I also have a bet with them--if I can lose 50 pounds, my mother will quit smoking and my brother will pay for me to have lasik surgery on my eyes. The goal is to lose as much weight as possible before my June 18th wedding.
I am nervous, but I am ready. And I am sure I will be turning to 3FC for tons of support.
Sweet dreams Chicks! Best of luck to those of you on phase 1...or 2, or 3:)

Great! Best of luck and keep with it! I think tomorrow I too will be ready for phase 1 day 1. I have been on 1.5 to ease myself back into a strict 1 as per some insight from a lovely lady who noticed I was having a rather difficult journey this time around. So good luck to you and wish me luck!

Great motivations! Good luck, you can do this!

Thank you for the support and encouragement! It is great motivation! And I really love that I can go online and receive so much great support.
Violet, I have been posting what I eat on the "on plan" thread but I would love to compare. Hope everything is okay with the floods--I teach geography and we were talking about that this morning. Good luck!

:welcome: to The Beach, sarahsk! You sure have some great incentives to lose weight, and I wish you great success!
:wave: Laneebm! I hope after reading the book that you do decide to join us here on The Beach. It's more than just low fat and sugar-free, though, so make sure you read the book thoroughly before starting on this plan. We look forward to getting to know you.
