Yah I told myself that after the first phase I would stop weighing in every day, but I got addicted to seeing the improvement!
I don't exercise enough, but that is going to change as of next week. My menu is really made up of Phase I recipes right out of the book and my portions are very reasonable.
Your mention of cheese is something to look into. When I run late for work (that's just about every day) I end up taking two pieces of string cheese as my snacks. (One morning, one afternoon) I bet I am overdoing the cheese!
Today I've had a 4oz low-everything yogurt for breakfast.
Low fat string cheese as snack.
Phase II Crab cakes for lunch, with spinach + Parmesan cheese.
I'll have another string cheese later if I need it,
Then a chicken recipe with asparagus for dinner.
If things are right on schedule (And I've had goofy schedules since getting sick in July) then my TOM should be tomorrow or Sat. at the latest - and I have been really cranky! Hopefully that is it, and if so, then I avoid the scale until that's gone!
Thanks for the suggestions, also, what would be a good exercise routine to work into for someone that really dislikes walks/runs on her own. I play softball on Wed. nights and volunteer doing chores at a horse farm on Saturdays - but neither of those are real heart pumping things. Well, except for running the bases... heh.
