View Full Version : On Plan Thread: October 14-20

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

I wanted to pop in and say hi. I am busier (and more stressed) than I have ever been yet I just keep reminding myself how important it is to stay OP. My greatest OP asset during this crazy time has been having my cupboards/refrigerator/freezer stocked with OP foods. I do have to make a 1x/week produce shop but I have had zero temptation to "eat out" because there's "nothing at home". I'm following P2 and maintaining my weight which feels really great.

Ugh. So today is my last day of P1. An I'm going to a concert tonight, so I planned to swing by a deli or something on my way to get some dinner. Ended up going to au Bon pain while waiting for a friend at the bus station... Figured I could grab some soup. Literally, they had ZERO soups that passed muster. So I opted to transition to P1.5, literally one meal shy of P1 perfection, because I figured lentil and barley soup is still preferable to a bun-less hot dog at the arena. Dammit!

bad bad day... started out on plan then took a downward spiral at our staff meeting where there were nothing but bready & sugary snacks... didnt do too bad after that, but I must admit, I did cave and I did cheat.

I wont post exactly what I had, out of respect of my fellow SBDers.
Sigh! Tomorrow is another day & I will be on plan.
