Default hey everyone!

Just checkin in to say hello. I had my first cycle weigh in this morning- 155.4 and that makes me down 4.5 pounds in my first week. My weekend wasn't as strong as I would've liked and I think I went over my 6oz of wine by an extra 6 oz. so I think that slowed me in the weekend, but I'm still very happy. I'm setting this weeks goal at 153-which is only 2.4 pounds so we'll see. I am at working- temping at Dolce Gabbana until my next show in July. Sounds glamorous, sooo isn't. I'm sick of sitting on my butt all day, answering phones behind a desk, no matter how nice or how luxiorious it is. Anyway, Today I had a sandwich for meal 4 which was awesome! Love the second week, lol! I missed bread a little bit but not really bc I wasn't a big bread eater before bc it makes me gain weight- it doesn't actually in itself, but i used to eat A LOT of it, duh.

But ladies, I don't know whats going on-maybe metabolism raring, but I am soooo hungry today- driving me insane. I'm having a hard time fighting it- i mean i have so far, but i feel like i'm walking a thin line,AAAHHH!

Annie- You can do it! Resist the pizza! I know you will!

Latoya- girl, work that confidence!!!I feel the same way- the only reason I know I'm a little overweight is bc my clothes don't fit, but I still think I look awesome in my birthday suit...i'm also in a business that definitely frowns upon being overweight-actress, so I know it'll change how much work I get and Idon't want that to happen!

Kara- I was so nervous this morning for my weigh in too- as a matter of fact, I had a dream last night that I ate a whole bag of BBQ potato chips- like the big party size bag and immediately i started crying bc I'd blown my whole week of working hard lol. We can tell what was on my mind! You'll be great tomorrow- good luck!

Welcome to all the new smashers!!

That's great smashin, congrats on the loss! What is it about dreaming about food? In my dream I was eating oatmeal cookies, I don't even like oatmeal cookies but I ate a whole box of them in my dream.

southern and while i like chips- i don't like 'em like that, lol!

I just sat and looked at people's goal pics in the goal picture forum and I feel so inspired they all look great- especially those who've lost large amounts of weight- I couldn't imagine but I respect it greatly!

Smashin- I looked at those goal pics too, they are so awesome to look at!!! Congratulations on that wonderful weigh in! You should be ecstatic about how much you lost! That's so hilarious about y'all's dreams about eating...I had one last night, though I can't remember what I was eating. When I lost the 86 lb. before, I used to dream about eating McDonald's french fries-LOL.

At least we're eating in our dreams and not in reality...ha!

C Bo- Your meals from today sound GREAT! I love brown rice with lots of veggies, my fav is broccoli. I've become addicted to broccoli on this diet. Haha!

Have a great night, all!!

Well girls, I'm back from dinner...and good news. I didn't get tempted.

I figured out a plan ahead of time and stuck with it. I even ordered an appetizer to make myself feel like I was a part of the dining out experience. I ordered the tomato, mozzeralla and basil salad with light dressing, and I handed over the cheese to everyone else. Then I ordered a large salad as my meal. It wasn't nearly as good as that pizza, but I know in the end it was worth more than having pizza for one night. Your good wishes definitely came my way. And to top it all off...which will really show if I'm tempted or not, my friend (an my boss) was telling me how much she loved that pizza, too. I know we shouldn't show love with pizza, BUT since she's been going through a rough time lately, I ordered her a small for lunch tomorrow. I'll have to plan ahead to have a really yummy meal, so I don't give into temptation. Hopefully her step-son (I work out of her house on our events) will be around and will devour it before I even have a chance to second guess myself.

Smashin - Congrats on the weight loss! I do a lot of work with television and dabble in films, and I understand the pressure. Luckily I work behind the camera, but I've seen it and can't even imagine it being on me that way. Good luck this week!

SouthernGal - there is a recipe on the recipe thread for oatmeal cookies. Personally I haven't tried it (not such a fan of oatmeal myself), but everyone has spoken highly of them. Maybe I'll have to try them out, so I can still have my milk and cookies treat.

Kara - Good Luck tomorrow! No matter what the scale says, just remember that you're headed in the right direction and making the right steps to be a healthier, more fabulous you. We're pulling for you!

Today I wasn't too hungry, so I know I didn't eat enough and have been running around like a nut. Tomorrow is a new day, and I'll be back on track

B - vanilla yogurt with oatmeal/granola (I know granola isn't on the detox, but it was a very oaty granola and I was running out the door!) and bananas
L - big bowl of steamed veggies with spices and an orange
S - carrots
D - tomato basil salad and a great big salad for dinner

I'm going to grab a snack tonight of something good, since I didn't eat too much today. It'll be something good, but definitely something on the plan.

We did GREAT today, girls! Good Luck tomorrow!

Annie I am sooo proud of you!!! I know how hard it is to resist Italian. Personally, that is one of my favorite cuisines, so I would've had a rough time too, but you had all of that great food and didn't succumb to the temptation-way to GO!!! Also, that's really sweet of you to get the pizza, and I know you'll be able to resist it again tomorrow.

I know how it is somedays not feeling like eating as much as others. I've found that my stomach has really shrunk while being on this diet. I used to be able to eat a LOT (hence the overweight-ness) but now, not so much. That feels good being able to get full on a breakfast where I used to would've eaten a lot more.

Anyway, have a great night ladies! I'm sure I'll be posting again before it's over, but if I don't--I'll let you know how much the scale tells me tomorrow! Thanks for your good wishes!!!

I'm at work right now...so I can't really read through your posts but will do so tomorrow. It's been going great so far. I "cheated" and weighed myself today and lost 1.4 lb since yesterday morning. It's probably water weight but i'm so excited already.

B: 1/2 cup oatmeal and blueberries
S: 1/2 cup fat free yogurt + blackberries
L: 1 cup brown rice, grilled tofu, kimchi
S: baked sweet potato
D: 1 cup brown rice, bunch of veggies, chickpeas, tofu, soysauce, hotsauce
S: strawberr+4 oz of fat free yogurt

For those who eat oatmeal... I know we are allowed 1 cup of oatmeal daily during the detox phase. I asked this before but... is it 1 cup of cooked oatmeal or 1 cup of uncooked oatmeal? (since 1 serving on the package is 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal.. i am little bit confused..)

Thank you!

Tara-I'm confused about that too, so I've been waiting to see if anyone else answered it. Right now I just eat 1 packet of instant oatmeal, but I don't think that is 1C of it either way, honestly. I know that it's scrumptious, though!

I might bump it up to 2 packets if I figure out the right measurement, I just didn't want to go over.

OK, so I ate the nastiest meal tonight that I've eaten so far-LOL. I had gotten some frozen veggies (they were the steam-in-bag kind) that had squash, zucchini, asparagus, carrots, onions) and I mixed them with my brown rice. They were really nasty. I think in the future I'm going to stick to seasoning my own veggies and steaming them in my steamer. That's how I cook my broccoli and it's always SO good. So now I'm starving because that was my dinner, and I wanted to eat it so it didn't go to waste, ya know?

We are going to our friends' house for dinner tomorrow night, and I just got off the phone with her. She's making chicken and rice casserole, and I asked her to make a side salad with no dressing so that I could eat that. I'm going to bring my own dressing, veggies, and some rice. I'm going now to read over the FS book to figure out what I can eat now that I'll be starting Phase 2 tomorrow!!! Wahoo!!!!

I have heard that a lot of people alternate between the two phases, and I was wondering how long they stay on Phase 2 before going back to Phase 1. Has anybody here done that??

Kara :-)

Tara & Kara (lol)- I think it's when you measure it uncooked, that would be my assumption. I've just been having the one serving and it's been filling me up pretty well.

Kara are you eating plain oatmeal? I know I read in the forum that we're not supposed to have the instant flavored stuff because of the sugar.

I believe its 1 C cooked. 1 C uncooked seems like alot of oatmeal to me.

Annie, I'm so proud of you. 3 days down 6 more to go. Ladies, you have so much will power. I've declined all invitations of eating out until my detox is over. I know the temptation would be too great and I'd be afraid of giving in. My team at work ordered Chinese yesterday. I wanted it so bad. I fought the urge and went to the library to eat my lunch.

I walked for an hour yesterday evening. It was so hot but I felt good after. I wasn't even hungry. I can't believe my urge for coffee and diet pepsi is gone. I'm actually okay with drinking water. I wonder why the Crystal Light packs aren't allowed in phase 1. I do miss the lemonade and grape flavors.

Kara, I love broccoli too and good luck with your weigh in today!

Off to make my lunch for today!

I would love to join you. Today is my first day on the Fat Smash Diet so I would love to have the support of others on the diet as well. I have been reading the other post and I feel confident that this diet will work.

Hello, I would love to join you. I just started the Fat Smash Diet today and so I have nothing to report as to weight loss but I feel great about making this decision. I am also new to this blog so I made a mistake and posted a reply to the wrong thread. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon. Anyway I look forward to visiting with you and the others as we melt away the fat.

Jan

Hey everyone I am on Day 3! So far things are going well! I had a couple cheats, but they were very small cheats! (1 slice of cheese and syrup in my oatmeal.) Today I am not going to have any cheats at all! So far, I have mainly ate just fruits, vegetables, and brown rice. I am waiting until the weekend to add yogurt and eggs. It will be my weekend treat I guess! The weekend is going to be hard for me to not cheat, though!
