Thanks so much everyone! This is a great place for encouragement - I know I can do this! I have to keep reminding myself that I started SB to be healthier - the weight loss is a great side effect.
Before SB, my eating habits were ok - little to no fast and fried foods, lots of veggies (so easy in the summer!) and lean meats. But my weight just kept creeping up. I think it was my reliance on carb-rich foods. My favorite snack was crackers - actually, anything salty and crunchy. That craving is gone, and now I'm satisfied with pepper strips, raw broccoli and hummus.
I'm just nervous about reintroducing some carbs. I've always eaten ww bread and limited pastas - I guess I will just have to be really conscious about how much I eat.
I like the idea of Phase 1.5! Very clever - that may allow me to ease into P2!
Again, thanks so very much for the support! You all are amazing!
