Default On Plan Thread: January 3rd to 9th 2011

Almost put 2010 in the title... Welcome to 2011 everyone!

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?

[ 2015: july - august - september - october - november - december ]
[ 2016: january - february - march - april - may ]

Tomorrow will be my first day in P1 at work...which means stress and emotions. I have my lunch packed perfectly as well as snack and an "emergency" stash for my desk.

I only on day 3 of P1 and so far it has been at home and very manageable. My only downfall is too much peanut butter. I know that is weakness and I have to watch it!!! But I am ready to face the real world.

I'm fighting temptation tonight, that's why I'm here! I am delaying by writing, and maybe when I'm done I'll be able to actually say NO MORE FOOD THIS EVENING. Right now the best I can say is . . . write for a little while first and see how you feel after that.

OK, I lost 5 pounds before the holidays and actually enjoyed the process. Then I went off SB when I went to visit my parents for 12 days, although I didn't go crazy with sweets or anything. Now I don't want to even weigh myself until I have a week back on plan.

Today is Day 1 of Phase 1, and it wasn't quite perfect.

B: 2 eggs w/spinach, coffee
S: coffee
S: mozzarella stick, small V8
L: large salad (lots of veggies, vinaigrette, garbanzo beans, salami, chicken), Greek Yogurt with two chopped prunes for sweetener (yes, that's cheating because it is fruit on Phase 1), about 8 raw pecans
S: another mozzarella stick
D: one and a half andouille sausages (with lots of peppers, onions, grated carrots and celery sauteed in chicken broth), Greek yogurt with about a half teaspoon of lemon curd for sweetener (Cheating again with fruit! Small, yet still cheating.)
S: a handful of salted peanuts

OK, tomorrow can be a little better. I already made the salad I can take for lunch. Now that I wrote this I think I can be satisfied with a cup of peppermint tea and no more food for today.

Good luck to all of us!
