It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

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.

People in different phases of South Beach post here so it will 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?

How's it going for you?

Of course feel free to share your daily on plan menu

"Pizza in a bowl" sounds yummy! I might have to try that one. :)

I'm coming off my initial two weeks (this round) on Phase 1 and started Phase 2 yesterday. Breakfasts are now fruit and Greek yogurt rather than the egg variations I've been eating on Phase 1. Still sticking with the soups and salads, very few grains. Black bean chili in the crock pot yesterday, chicken salad on lettuce today (with leftover chili for supper). I fell off the wagon a bit on the weekend, but focusing on quick recovery. Down another 6 pounds this morning at weigh-in, so it must not have hurt too much! :) Behaved myself yesterday for the most part.

So, I have been doing SBD for a little over a month now. I have lost weight but not as much as my husband I have not gotten the hang of this just yet. I have had family visit and then I went to visit New York City over the weekend. I know I could have made better eating choices up there but ohhhhh the food is so good up there!! I know, I know, excuses, excuses!
I am back on track this week. I just found this site today and have found some great new ideas for meals. I have an awful sweet tooth and I also found some good sweet treats that are easy to make. I hoping to be back to pre new york trip weight by the end of the week.
This forum is going to be great!!!

Breakfast: eggs with jalapenos and avocado, tomato slices
Snack: cheese stick
Lunch: greek salad with grilled chicken
Snack: hummus and red peppers
Dinner: chicken sausage and white bean stew
Dessert: chai latte

So, in a stroke of good timing, the gym in my office today announced a six-week "biggest loser" weight loss challenge... Teams of two, winning team gets a weekend spa trip. Talk about motivation! I just wish i kicked off sbd next week so my initial loss "counted," but there is no going back now...

Mace508 The pizza in a bowl is delish! I highly recommend it to any pizza lover.

Christi Welcome to the forum. I have the same sort of problem with those pesky 'excuses' when travelling, I always found posting here helps keep me at least some what on track.

Swandive81 That is awesome that your office gym is having that sort of contest, best of luck!

I have been so busy between my renovation project and regular work. I was determined to stay OP through this and have, so far, excepting today's lunch which was at the restaurant I work. I had a burger/FF which I have never eaten in the two years I have worked there although I could have one for a shift meal every I consider it a rare and unusual treat.
I always have my smoothie for breakfast and I've been having the same thing for dinner 2 nights in a row. Tonight (again) it was my mediterranean salad and WW spiral pasta with a bit of melted Earthbalance and sprinkling of cheddar cheese. After dinner...yogurt and a melted mix of T.Almond butter and dark chocolate.
Tomorrow through Monday I work at the restaurant and food will be easier.

Finally lost again this week after several months of a plateau... lets hope its not just a fluke!

Though its thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, I may have to rethink my planned dessert indulgence I was going to treat myself to.

Thanks Tammy! Its such a huge change to cut off so much of my hair, takes awhile to get use to, but I do love it.

It was fantastic to finally see the number on the scale change... hopefully it keeps going down (even with my thanksgiving cheat)
