Default On Plan Thread Jan. 6 - 12

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?

How's it going for you?

Of course feel free to share your daily on plan menu

Pearly Girly - you don't have much holding power in your breakfast, I would've been tempted too!

P1

B: 2 coffees w Stevia & FF HnH
Yogurt (may try adding ground flax)

L: Tomato/Mozz Garden Burger from TJs
Salad w LF Italian dressing

Snack: Hummus & Celery

Dinner: Salmon & steamed broccoli w earth balance margarine


About 3 cups of herbal tea w stevia.

2 handfuls of raw, unsalted almonds

About 6 glasses water

Tammy, I know my breakfast is pretty light but I got really burnt out on eggs years ago when I did Atkins and I ate them like crazy. Same with bacon. I still like eggs but only once in a while so I would rather eat oatmeal, yogurt or cottage cheese the majority of mornings. It's funny I don't miss sweets or much of anything except oatmeal but since I'm phase 1 right now it will have to wait. I just bought the ingredients for the protein cheesecakes and that's a project of mine for today.

Ugh, been struggling again. Too much work and it's too COLD for running outside (I get exercise-induced asthma if I run when it's below ~40F<< that's positive 40F, not negative ). booooooo

The extra hunger and much less patience that accompany not enough sleep (due to the too much work) means that it becomes a "good idea" to grab whatever crappy pizza/chocolate/other crap my family has lying around. That's what I did yesterday and I definitely believe you are what you eat as I felt like craaaaap afterward. Bounced back by dinner time luckily - just a small bowl of bean soup.

I do have to say that even though I drifted over to the binge-y side yesterday I still have an idea of what I ate calorie-wise.... and it wasn't horrible (especially when I consider what amounts I have been consuming in the last year). But I'm gaining weight still! UUUUUUGGGGHHHH my body is so weird now. I have never had to be this strict. In the recent past I would just have to pay attention to what I am consuming and my weight would drop a little at least.

Anyway, it is what it is. Back on track.

Phase 1.5ish (carrot, dark chocolate, no grains)
B - coffee with us almond milk x 2. Cauliflower protein pancakes with sf syrup, 1 veggie sausage patty.
L - Veggie chili with 1.5 roasted bell peppers added. Green tea with lemon.
Ss - celery and carrot sticks with Laughing Cow Light, small serving almonds, 1 cup Greek yogurt, maybe one stinkin' little piece of dark chocolate (50 calories)
D - One veggie brat (I am in general trying to wean myself off of all the "fake meats" but I have a freezer full that I would like to consume first) over sauteed cabbage

Exercise: 1 hour yoga. PLUS Couch to 5K, Week 6 Day 2 on a treadmill if I can motivate myself to do it before or after yoga class.

PearlyGirly Just keep in mind that you don't have to have "breakfast food" for breakfast (leftovers make a great breakfast) ... I only mention this, because I notice that people on South Beach, tend to get into a "breakfast food" box, so I like to give people a little reminder every so often.

Phase 1
'Fried' egg
Turkey bacon
V8

Kara's beany brownie
Greek yogurt

Celery w/ ranch

Meatballs (homemade, no bread crumbs) w/ nsa marinara & fresh parm.
Brocolli
Cauliflower
Glass of skim milk

Cucumber & rf cheddar (if munchie in a bit)

I fully understand Pearl (sue!). This time around I was absolutely loathing the idea of eggs again for breakfast, but they do hold me so much better. I'm quite happy finding the cheesecake recipe, and rememberingthe egg foo young (chinese for breakfast?! WOO HOO!). I wasn't hungry yet at 1 pm yesterday, they hold me longer than everything else!

I was going to write my menu, but with DH gone and lots of leftovers....I'm just repeating what I've had the past couple of days.

Hi everyone.

So a quick question, when you weigh yourselves I'm guessing most everyone weighs in the morning? I did something goofy yesterday & a tad enlightening...I weighed in the morning after all I had was coffee and it showed as 151. My start weight on the 2nd was 155. However, I weighed again at night and it was back up to 155 from the 151. Just to show the difference a bit of food and clothing can make. So what do you all consider your true weight when you weigh?

P 1

B: 2 coffee w stevia & FF HnH.
2 Protein cheesecakes

L: Tuna w LF mayo & relish in half a bell pepper
Celery w LF Rondele cheese wedge

S: Maybe some yogurt.

D: West African Chicken & Peanut Stew from Kalyn's Kitchen
Lettuce & Tomato Salad w LF dressing

Coffee or tea w stevia while we have company over tonite.

Most folks get up, do the potty thing and then weigh before eating anything or having coffee. Weight can fluctuate badly during the day but your getting up weight is pretty true.
