Default On Plan thread 3/27-4/2

Time for a new thread!

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?

Saturday, March 26, 2011 (Day 28) - Phase 2

Breakfast: Ricotta waffles w/ SF syrup; 1 c 1% milk; 2 cups coffee each w/ c 1% milk and sweetener - Vitamins

Snack: V8; cheese or egg

Lunch: Chicken strips with carrots, celery and blue cheese dressing

Dinner: Chicken Mandarin Cashew salad (at arena)

Snack: Apple


The challenge for the day came at dinner time... we were supposed to go out to eat with friends before the game, but they were running late so we didn't get to the restaurant where we had a healthy dinner planned. We found a decent choice at the arena, and I felt good about it given all the horrible choices that they offer there.

I'm leaving this morning to go to my sister's house for the week to help her out. It's a landmine of processed/junk foods there, so I'm nervous about it. I've got a plan though and I'm bound and determined to see another loss when I get home.

Zeff, how did those pancakes turn out? They look scrumptious!

I've been spending most of my days at the hospital, and the salad bar there just doesn't look appealing. Yesterday and today I had a grilled cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread, but I know there was a lot of butter on it. I'm going to have to remember to start taking my own lunch. Ha. You'd think a hospital would be the one place where it would be easy to get healthy foods.

Phase 2

B. bagel w/ cream cheese
L. grilled cheese on ww bread
D. huge salad to make up for my lack of veggies
S. SBD friendly apple crisp w/ a scoop of SF vanilla ice cream

Cottage and Shelf - they were amazing! They actually weren't too much work. The pancakes weren't any more work than pancakes ever are, and the soft serve was just an issue of throwing both ingredients into a food processor and turning it on. The entire family thought they were great, though, and I have leftover "soft serve" for later (midnight snack!)

I have been lurking since December when I started SBD. Loving all of the support and encouragment here I decided to join in. I have not been doing a great job watching my carbs, but I am still losing. Just got back from a week in Thailand and actually lost 1 pound while on vacation! I am starting Phase 1 again, with my husband in tow this time around.

B Eggs w/spinach onions and peppers 1 slice of bacon (I cannot buy turkey bacon in China!)
L Asian salad with Chicken
D Stir fried veggies with pork or chicken
S Cashews/red pepper strips/laughing cow cheese

Hello and welcome! You'll see lots of different relationships with scales here. Some members weigh daily, some go only by how their clothes are fitting!

I, personally, usually do check my weight daily (at the same time every morning before breakfast). If you do this, it's critical to keep in mind that there are lots of reasons for variation in water retention and knowing that it's fine and normal to fluctuate a couple of pounds day-to-day.

I'm glad you have a menu planned. I think a clean phase one is critical to success during the phase two transition, and planning my week was instrumental to my success (and 8lb loss) on phase one. I think South Beach is a great plan, and the number of regular members just around this forum who have had and maintained success speaks volumes about its potential. Check in regularly in the on plan thread, incorporate some of the amazing recipes that have been contribute, and above all... stick to it! Good luck!
