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?

2 bananas with 20 peanuts

I'm officially in the normal weight range. I have no idea what to think now since I've been overweight or obese my entire adult (and probably most of my childhood) life. I don't know how much further I want to go. I hit my December goal of 8 lbs. and will probably eek out maybe another pound before the end of the year. Maybe another 20 lbs? Gosh, that number seems so attainable now.
B: Veggie omelet
S: RF cheese stick
L: Huge salad, grilled chicken, kidney beans
S: Skinny latte, RF cheese stick
D: Black Bean Chili, grilled veggies, had a few pieces of venison from the grill (It was very lean & very tasty!)
S: Almond butter
My holiday fun is officially over now and I'm getting 100% back on plan today. Thankfully, I didn't do any damage over the holidays but I did get kind of lazy.
B: steel cut oats, milk, splenda and a glass of v8
S: veggies and hummus
L: southwestern spaghetti squash
S: almonds and hot tea
D: grilled chicken, baked squash and steamed broccoli
I'll have a milky beverage sometime this afternoon or evening and a SF jello if my husband's m&m's start looking too inviting this evening.
