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?

Zeff, Ruth, and Jen I am in the same boat! I am usually so good with water but I forgot my water bottle at home this weekend at work and definitely did not get enough! I am up to my ears with stress from work, school, other projects, and while I'm constantly busy it is taking a toll on my meal planning and exercising. My ticker is lying as well, but I will just change it at my monthly weigh-in. I think I'm going to rescind to a phase 1.25 (no grains, minimal fruit). I've been lacking at updating my exercise challenge so I may just post here.
1: iced coffee w splenda and lt cream, lemon-caper tilapia with sauteed kale and tomato salad
2: pb&j&banana smoothie w almond milk and labne
My January Goal: 131.0 Jan 2nd re-start: 135.1 Feb 1st (total Jan loss): 130.5 (4.6 lbs lost!!!)
A smoothie made with spinach.
I put spinach, almond milk, banana, chia seeds and flax seed in mine.
SOOOOOOOO good!! Don't let the green color scare you! It is actually sweet tasting! Easy way for me to get 2 veggies servings in. I fill that blender with spinach!
Ugh. Back on the Phase One train for me. I've let this month get away from me with the indulgences. I've got a huge gain (8lb!!) over my low weight, and even though I know some of it is water, I've got to get back on track. I updated my ticker to reflect my real weight. It hurt!! I want this so badly.
B: coffee, egg whites, lf cheddar
L: spanakopita turkey meatballs, hummus and veg slices, babybel light
S: coffee, greek yogurt w/ chia and SF syrup
D: leftover indian food: curried chickpeas and spinach with paneer
S: coffee, cheese stick, and a "cheesecake cup" with egg white, cream cheese, almond butter, cocoa powder and splenda
Exercise: 4.5km run.
