Default Newbie to the beach

Hello everyone!!!
I chose this diet because my daughter wanted to go on a diet. She is 16 and I think she looks fine but of course she thinks she is HUGE!!! Anyway I said we would research and choose a plan that we can do together. We both liked the fact that there is none of that measuring stuff. We liked that you are told what you can and can't have. IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO FOLLOW!!! We started on June 1st and made it through Phase 1 just fine. She lost 5 and I lost 9. It was so funny on the first day of Phase 2 we couldn't wait for breakfast....Oatmeal and Strawberries!!!!!!!!!! and dessert that night ...Chocolate covered Strawberries!!! Can you tell we were missing fruit and sick of eggs for breakfast!!! In fact that is how I found you chickies... I was searching for new recipes on the web and came across this. What a great support forum!! I hope to be able to check in often, your success stories are a great motivational booster...and I need that...i have a long way to go!

Mary Anne
Have a great Day!!

Welcome and congrats to you both!

Just be careful on the adding fruits and such back into your diet. You may want to do one thing at one time -- like oatmeal for a week and see if you gain, then add strawberries. That way you can see what your body can handle and what time of day.

For the short stint I was on Phase 2, for example, I tried adding bread back. I ate a piece for breakfast but it set off massive cravings. So, on Wed (or whenever I lose these pesky -2 pounds I put back on), I am going to try adding bread at dinner or a fruit at dinner for a week and see how the cravings are.

I figure, unless I sleepwalk, if I have cravings, I can't eat in my sleep

Welcome to our lil piece of paradise!

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.
