Hi. Started again soft of informally on Friday and even with cheating & no exercise (save marching in a parade and gardening) I lost 1.5 lbs. Tried the french toast style egg pancakes which were okay. Breakfast will be hard. Lunch has been tuna or imitation crab on salad with lemon and maybe a little oil or crab salad. Avoiding the carbs at dinner - meat or poultry and salad.

Drinking lots of water shooting for 1.5 liters per day. Goal is to be in onderland by Mid June.

Cheers...Sue

Smile Week 1 went great!

Hi all...
My first week went really well. 9lbs in one week! Yay! I even went to movie night at my dance instructor's house and managed to stay OP. I managed to resist strawberries, cake and bread. I brought bean dip and diet soda. Silly me didn't think to bring tortilla chips for the bean dip because I can't eat them. I got harassed the entire night. Mean girls!

Oh well, on to week 2. I don't expect to see 9lbs gone, but I do hope for some pounds lost. Have a good week everyone, .

Well, Here I am! I should be starting Phase 2 today, but I cheated badly this weekend and need to start over and get back on track. I stocked up at the grocery store and am ready to go full speed this week until I can control the cravings again.

I think going back to Phase 1 is the only way I'm going to get myself on track again, so here I am. Not happy about it, but here I am.

Same as dolphin girl. It is my 3rd day on the diet as well, and everything is going good. I had a rough few days though. On Saturday I had a really bad headache from not having sugar and just adjusting to not eating the things that you love.

I'm making a little concession to my Phase 1, since I've redone it so many times. I'm including a little fruit in my daily menu. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me and helps control my craving for something sweet.
Day 1:
Breakfast: FF Greek yogurt w/ strawberries, ground flaxseed and cinnamon
Snack: string cheese
Lunch: will be a grilled chicken breast in a big vegetable salad
Snack: roasted chickpeas, raw veggies
Supper: grilled chicken breast topped with roasted red pepper, onion and LF
mozzarella, all wrapped in romaine lettuce
Dessert: peanut butter cup dessert

Hi fatchicks!

It's day 12 of phase 1 for me.
Clothes are looser.
My sense of self respect has grown tremendously.
My belly has noticeably shrunk, though of course there's a long way to go.
I'm one of those people that is all belly.
Think 8 months pregnant looking without a baby to look forward to.
On a 5 feet no inch frame.
~sigh~
Thank goodness I only realized what I really look like a few months ago.

Well...I have to restart Phase 1 today. The weekend was horrible and even though I did good last week, I am sure the weekend ruined it.
SO....restarting today. No cheating!!!

Hi everyone! I'll be starting phase 1 tomorrow. I'm new to South Beach - my neighbor is in med school, and he told me this is a great diet and a great way of life. He and his beautiful wife are in their maintenance phases. They look amazing.

I have many pounds to lose, and am excited to get started! I had lost weight with WW before, but I'm horrible about keeping a journal. Now I'm at my heaviest ever.

Welcome Sarah!

Today was great. I actually enjoy a ton of the things on SBD and look forward to them. I am trying all sorts of new things. Tonight I am making jicama fries for the first time and I bought some tofu noodles that I will have tomorrow. I would never have tried these if not for SBD.

Day 4 and it feels that it's getting easier. However, I need to explore new ideas for breakfast.

I bought some SBD frozen foods last night for phase 1, maybe I will have that for dinner tonight. I noticed they had NO VARIETY for phase 1, like they have for phase 2 and 3. Anyone tried these before?

Jicama Fries? That sounds interesting. I love Jicama, especially with lemon and a little salt. Yummy!

Dolphingirl, try to only use those SBD frozen meals as a last resort. Look at the ingredients listing, there's a lot of stuff in there that we should avoid, even if it is made for the South Beach Diet. I must admit, though, that I really like the frozen pizzas, and will have one when time is tight. Eat a salad or an extra side of veggies with your frozen meal, because they don't have a large enough serving size included in it. I'm glad it's getting easier for you, the first 3 days are the biggest hurdle. What have you been eating for breakfast? I enjoy plain FF yogurt, sweetened with a SF syrup (DaVinci's ?), or Splenda, flaxmeal, and cinnamon. You could do the same with cottage cheese or ricotta, too. Look in the FAQ section for the stickies on Phase 1 Breakfast Ideas, too, for more great ideas.

This is Day 2 for me, so far so good. (Remember, I'm including fruit in my version of Phase 1.)

Breakfast: 1/2 cup ff cottage cheese w/ strawberries and flaxmeal
Snack: 2 deviled egg halves
Lunch: will be a big veggie salad topped with black beans and salsa
Snack: probably not
Supper: chicken breast topped with roasted red peppers and mozzarella, on a bed of shredded cabbage
Dessert: peanutbutter cup dessert
