How about you? Getting ready to make the jump to Phase 3?
If I do, it will be on Saturday. I want to see my weigh in on Wednesday, first. I haven't weighed since we were on vacation over Memorial Day weekend because the following Wednesday (my weigh in day), I had a horrid cold and had taken cold medicine. So I have no idea where the scale is. As long as nothing unexpectedly horrible has happened (and there is no reason it should have), I plan to take the plunge on Saturday.

So glad you are feeling so great!

So far it has been going very well. I was a bit worried about eating so early this morning, have to leave for work at 7. Everything went fine.

Realized that I like the Ezekiel Bread better than the English muffin. Tomorrow, I am going to try a paleo almond loaf bread.

I hope your WI is fantastic and that you take the plunge

Interesting, definitely hungrier today. Wonder if it is the waffles?

So, were you less hungry w/o the waffles, Slipfree? Those waffles caught my eye because they are on sale this week.

I don't know why you're not getting more participation on this thread, but it sure is very helpful to me, so thanks!

I'm coming over, Slipfree! Taking the plunge this Saturday!! I need to decide what I am going to eat and then hunt & gather it all. I told my husband and son -- big breakfast Saturday morning, at the dining room table! Be there or be square. LOL

P.S. I hope you will take it as a compliment that you look just like Meg Ryan in your cute haircut and aviators! (The cute Meg Ryan from the 90s. I don't know what my girl did to herself after that.)

Definitely less hungry w/o the waffles. Also felt pretty bloated yesterday. A bunch of Oct. Newbies are right behind me with Phasing off. I figure that if I post my breakfasts, it will be a resource for them when they are ready.

I am so glad that you have decided to take the plunge! We can not diet forever, we have to learn how to maintain our healthy new bodies. The task can seem a little daunting! Sat. Was a great day to start, because I had more time at home to see how my body reacted.

Thanks for the compliment! I used to get told that I look like Jodie Foster, lol.

Okay, here I come! I took the plunge, and here is what I had (and it was blissful heaven):

Strawberries & Cream French Toast

Nature's Own Double Fiber Wheat Bread, 2 slices
2 eggs + 2 egg whites
1.5 c. sliced strawberries
1/2 c. fat free ricotta cheese

482 calories; 40g net carbs (fell a bit short, but 55 total carbs); 46g protein; 11g fat.

I'm full . . . it was delicious . . .

OMG, this sounds amazing. Someone asked me the other day what I missed the most from being on Phase 1 and after thinking really hard about it, I've decided its yoghurt, cheese and blueberries. This breakfast is going in my planner for phase 3 which is about 5 weeks away. I'm at goal now but my coach and I think i can go a bit lower. Can't wait to join you all in the maintenance journey.

I can't wait until you join us, either, RosiePosie!

As far as the above recipe, I am going to take away 2 of the egg whites next time because I could not get the bread to soak it all up. It probably would have if I'd put it together the night before, though. I reworked the recipe on MFP, and, with 2 less egg whites, the nutritional value = 448 cals; 54 carb; 11 fat; 39 protein; and 15 fiber. This leaves me a little wiggle room for a bit of EAS Carb Control shake for my coffee creamer.

Btw, I had quite a tummy ache for about 30 minutes after I finished eating. (Can't say I blame it, it hasn't had anything to really do in the mornings for 16 months!) After that, I felt great.
