I haven't posted here for a while because, as you can guess, my eating has been totally off plan. I think I'm going to buy the Beck book today. I know some of you have recommended it. I really need to try and figure out why I sabotage myself and also deal with my all or nothing mentality. I was going to do Phase 1 again but I'm going to see if I can just jump back in to Phase 2.

Week 1 of Phase 2 (last day of Week 1). Probably my worst day so far. But I've known all week we were going to a hockey game and then out to dinner, so I tried to be as good as possible. Skipped the snacks because there's no real friendly food at sporting events.

B: Two lightly fried eggs, two strips of real bacon (oops!), cheese
L: 3 non-breaded buffalo wings, all the celery on the plate, a little bit of ranch, and 1 Guinness
D: Shrimp and broccoli garlic stir fry, chicken satay skewers
Exercise: Walked around the city for 30 minutes in the nice weather
Water consumption: Remains terrible due to twisted addiction to Diet Dr. Pepper

OK... jumping back into this thread... accountability is a good thing.


Sunday, March 13, 2011 (Day 15) - Phase II/1 fruit

Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with tomato, red peppers, onions, 2% cheese, LF sour cream and salsa; 6-8 oz V8; 2 cups coffee with ¼ cup 1% milk and artificial sweetener

Snack: Yogurt with 1/8 t SF lemon jello powder

Lunch: Taco Salad with lots of veggies, avocado, black olives, LF sour cream and salsa

Snack: Missed

Dinner: Chicken Adobo with steamed broccoli and raw carrots

Snack/Desert: SB Friendly PB/Choc ‘Ice Cream’


I was supposed to have an apple and peanut butter for a snack this afternoon, but my schedule got thrown all out of wack with the time change today so I didn't have lunch until about 2:30 or 3:00... No need for a snack when dinner is 3 hours later. The good thing about it is that since I didn't have peanut butter this afternoon, I was able to have my most favorite PB/Choc 'Ice Cream' tonight instead of my originally planned NSA Fudgesicle. :love:

Zeff, may I assume that you steam the cauliflower until tender first or do you do the above raw? Also, some of your recipes sound so good, would love to come to eat at your house :).

I'm running way behind schedule today thanks to the time change and as a result am having a hard time getting my three meals in. Hopefully will make it even if the timing isn't the greatest.

Crack slaw w/chicken tonight for dinner.

Hey everyone! I have been eating too much and not the right things for a while. I start the day healthy, but always fail *epically* I've done the SBD before and plan on starting tomorrow.

I would really appreciate support. I've really lacked motivation as of late. Almost every day I say "this is the day" but I never do anything about it. I'm hoping to lose 15 pounds. (My stats are not right. I currently weigh 140 lbs.)

Thanks,
K

zeffryn
03-14-2011, 07:17 PM
T&T - yes, steam the cauliflower first!

Madrid - try to get about 60% of your calories in the first two meals of the day. It will help stave off the hungry monster in the evening.

S - 1 tsp almond butter (I know too many nuts)

Hey chicks... I've been quite ill the past few days, and have only managed to choke down a very small meatless salad last night and about 1/2 cup of my dad's chili tonight, and that's all in the past 72 hours. I need to have my faulty gallbladder out because every couple of months I get random series of attacks and can't eat, sleep, or even drink too much water without EXCRUCIATING pain. I hurt from my shoulders to about halfway between my ribs and hips, plus around my side and behind my shoulder blades. I was told in the ER this December that I need to have it out, but with lack of insurance this hasn't been possible yet. The attacks seem to be tapering off slightly now--just a little pain after the chili--so I hope tomorrow I can get back OP. I am STARVED.

Anyway, without further ado, tomorrow's (Phase 1) meal plan!

B-2 egg omelette with some spinach, possibly some onion and bell pepper thrown in for good measure.
L-going to attempt cauliflower pizza!
S-probably just some steamed veggies.
D-Spinach salad with chicken salad instead of dressing.
S-SF Popsicle

Let's hope that my gallbladder cooperates! :-(

wt: 152.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!! whew. feels odd to be so darn happy for that one pound. body fat this morning was 18.7...big change from the 39.4 it was a year ago.


Yeeeeeeah!! Huge congrats! That's definitely under 153!!! What do you use to track your body fat? You must feel completely different from a year ago!! Had you been overweight your whole life, or was the extra weight a new thing for you? I have to ask because you definitely seem to have the "think like a thin person" thing down. In any case, your progress is very inspiring. So much so that I think I'm going go to the gym now! :D

Hey chicks... I've been quite ill the past few days, and have only managed to choke down a very small meatless salad last night and about 1/2 cup of my dad's chili tonight, and that's all in the past 72 hours. I need to have my faulty gallbladder out because every couple of months I get random series of attacks and can't eat, sleep, or even drink too much water without EXCRUCIATING pain. I hurt from my shoulders to about halfway between my ribs and hips, plus around my side and behind my shoulder blades. I was told in the ER this December that I need to have it out, but with lack of insurance this hasn't been possible yet. The attacks seem to be tapering off slightly now--just a little pain after the chili--so I hope tomorrow I can get back OP. I am STARVED.

Let's hope that my gallbladder cooperates! :-(


Ugggh... try to get that taken care of.... you'll feel so much better.

I had a similar problem last year and it took months to figure out what was going on... I finally had it taken out in September (along with my appendix), but it had actually collapsed and was an infected mess by the time we figured it out and I had the surgery. It completely derailed my weight loss progress; it took me quite a while to get back on track.

Here's my food intake from yesterday:

Wednesday, March 16, 2011 (Day 18) Phase 2/1 fruit

Breakfast: Green Chili-Cheese Casserole; V8; 2 cups coffee each w/ ¼ c 1% milk and sweetener

Snack: Yogurt with 1/8 t SF lemon jello powder

Lunch: Salad with lots of veggies, leftover chicken strips, 2% cheese and 2 T dressing - Vitamins

Dinner: Spinach and Shrimp salad (Out – early before game)

Snack: Apple and cashews

Snack: NSA Fudgesicle

L - Lentil soup with spinach. Glass of low-sodium vegetable juice
S - celery with natural peanut butter
S2 - Greek yogurt with some frozen berries.
D - might be out? If not, stuffed flounder with mashed cauliflower and a green salad
dessert - a glass of red wine if I am out

That sounds terrible, surely the government have some kind of scheme for people with no insurance? It sounds like it is quite urgent?! I can't imagine the social services have nothing they can do to help!? I'm not exactly sure what because I'm not American, maybe someone else knows?

Hello, beachers! I've been afk on vacation all week. Not on plan, but tons of exercise in the form of hiking. Glad to be back to my normal eating habits!

I'll have to edit meal by meal today, since there is very little food in the house until I go grocery shopping.

B-Oatmeal w/ almond butter and about an oz dark chocolate
L-romaine salad with sliced apple and home made green goddess dressing
S-yogurt w/ frozen banana, almond detritus, and cocoa powder
D-eating at SiL's food stand, so won't be 100& on plan. I'll either go for the chicken gyro or soup and salad if the soup of the day isn't too insane.

So, I have done SB in the past and have lost 30 pounds. I have found that 19 of it has found its way back on me some how :-(

So I am starting back to on Phase 1. I am not sure how I was able to survive. I did Phase 1 for 3 weeks and lost 15lbs. I am trying to start it again.. And need some motivation as well as some ideas for lunch and dinner. I am trying to loose at least 10 pounds by the time I get married in a little over 4 weeks. I know it is a hefty goal. But I workout about 3 to 4 times a week. And hoping that this will help me even more. Because just working out isn't helping me. SO would love support through phase 1. Thanks for listening.

Starting weight: 169.7
Goal weight: 150

Not to get too off topic on this thread, but as far as my GB goes it's not really urgent... There is no blockage, it just randomly contracts and spasms causing extreme pain. It can be managed with medication (I am on Bentyl, Phenergan, and Percocet) but I also have constipation-predominant IBS and these meds cause constipation. If I take them my upper abdomen is happy but my lower abdomen kills me! I actually just met with someone at social services yesterday to discuss my options... I feel terrible about the idea of going on public assistance though. We'll see what happens. Hoping a job with good benefits comes through before it has to get to that point!

Today! (P1)
Bfast-Egg white omelet with salsa and black beans.
Lunch-Chicken salad over spinach and onion with a bit of shredded cheddar.
Snack-Spoon of PB
Dinner-Grilled chicken over spinach, with onion, bell pepper, and tomato.
Dessert-SF Popsicle!

It's 80* today, so a perfect night for grilling! Woohoo!

Rando-- this probably sounds very Canadian of me, but healthcare is your basic right! There's no shame receiving public help if it will improve your health. That's why it's an option :)

I'm so jealous of all you people who don't live in the North Pole with me and Santa. Will it EVER be Spring here? We got more snow last night!

Wt: 171! Yikes!

I made SBD-compliant bread pudding today, thanks to reading about it on one of Zeffryn's menus. YUM!!! I will post the recipe but I was wondering how this compares to how others make this, whether I can tweak it before I post it. Mine was a *little* dry but actually really, really good. I was thinking another egg (so it would be 1 egg/serving) or more milk, let it soak longer? I think the flavors were spot-on, tho I think 1 packet of stevia would have been enough for me. If anyone has any suggestions, I will incorporate... :thanks:

SBD Bread Pudding, first attempt
serves 2
1 egg
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy/cow/whatever)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 packets PureVia (stevia), or sweetener of choice
Ground cinnamon to taste (I just sprinkled a bunch on, but other recipes call for 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon)
~ 2 Tablespoons raisins, or other dried fruit such as cranberries
2 Tablespoons crushed walnuts, ~ 14 g (optional)
1 c. stale/dry SBD-compliant bread (50 g, but mine was pretty dry), cubedIn a bowl, beat egg to combine. Add milk, vanilla extract, sweetener and cinnamon. Stir to mix well. Add raisins and walnuts and bread cubes. Let sit for a while to let the raisins plump and the bread absorb the liquid (depends on how dry your bread was).

Grease 2 ramekins (I used little pie tins) with Smart Balance or other margarine/oil of choice. Divide mixture, ensuring approximately the same amount of liquid in both.

Bake at 350° F, until set and beginning to brown on top (20-25 minutes in my toaster oven). Cover the top if the bread is beginning to brown too much on top; you don't want toast.

Emma, maybe try baking it for a little less time? Mine was pretty liquidy...did I post the actual recipe or just the general idea. I can send you the actual recipe if you're interested to get a better idea of ratios. Glad you liked it, though!

Race for the Cure is this morning. Went out and bought a new, pink top and some black and zebra print shorts for the race. It isn't a timed event, but my group is almost 100 people strong and it should be a blast.

Going out tonight with DH so I'm avoiding grains (they make me kind of bloaty) today. Fruit only in the morning.
