View Full Version : Tomorrow Begins a New Phase

Monday morning is when I weigh for the second time, the end of phase 1. It's been so hard not to want to step on the scales for a week! Also tomorrow I start P2. I've been to the grocery and added in a few things from the list, I was careful to only get a select few things so I wouldn't be too tempted. Pretty basic...apples, strawberries, grapes for fruit. Then wg bread and the SB cereal for my breads. I don't want to mess this up! It's kinda scary! :o

Welcome to phase 2. Kelly, be careful of the fruits. They can set of cravings. I would eat them with a fat or high fiber something to slow their rate of digestion. I personally started with oat meal because I can take it to work. I'm 1 1/2 weeks into phase 2.

Maybe if I had the strawberries with my SB cereal, that might help? It's crazy, but I'm actually really worried about this!

Try not to stress. If something gives you cravings...don't eat it again.

Just don't add too many things at once. Try a few days with just the cereal before adding fruit. Add things slowly.

I had the SB cereal this morning, without any fruit. If I have any fruit today, I'm going to save it for later in the day. And I was down 3 pounds...I was hoping for more my second week on P1, but considering it was that time of the month, maybe that's pretty good?

Thanks for your help!

You didn't gain the weight overnight and you're not going to lose it overnight. Down is good. AND KEEP DRINKING THE WATER! Off to have lunch.

How did the day finish up for you?

It went fine! :) I didn't notice any cravings, but I didn't have the cereal this morning, I'm saving my carb for lunch with a ww pita today. I'm just testing the waters slowly!

Thanks for checking on me!
