Bless you for this! Since I've just started (on Day 2 of LA Express), it is so helpful to see what others are eating.

I have read the September journals and nearly wept with relief when I saw Lean Cuisine French Bread pizza on someone's post. Just one day off of bread/sugar/simple carbs has made me feel like a woman in mourning! I can't wait to get to my program explanation tonight!!

I can't wait to post my own plan!

Hi Andi and welcome to our group! I've been reading about you and your family - sounds like you have a great crew there.

About the food withdrawal - Right around day 3 I was going through sugar/simple carb withdrawal so bad I thought I was dying. I called the center and they told me it was a normal reaction to the change in eating habits (yes that quickly), and that very soon my body would adjust to it and I'd begin to feel much better. And I did! I suffered through the cravings and I'd say by day 4 I felt like my old self, only with more energy than I'd ever had before. So hang in there, it only gets better!

True! Well, I rarely have sweets cravings that that Lites/Lunas can't conquer. There was this one time that I told my counselor that I wanted some chocolate cake in the worst way. She gave me a few chocolate biscottis though, and told me how to count them, and I was fine after that. Eating on plan DOES reduce the sugar cravings, and I found that TO reduced the starch cravings. I don't know how that works, but its so true.

Oooh boy! I've been hungry! I had my breakfast and then went for a 45 minute brisk walk with my walking buddy. I came home and had 2 glasses of water and an LA Lite (didn't really care for the Lemon, but I'm not a real big bar person either). I went to the grocery store with a bad attitude about this and then came home and ate that wonderful, blessed Lean Pocket!!

Here's the plan for today:

Gold w/Lites PP VVV FFF SS D Fa LL

Breakfast:
1/2 bagel, toasted (S)
1 T. cream cheese (Fa)
8 oz. skim milk (D)
1/2 banana (F)

Lunch:
Chicken (P)
Roasted cauliflower and zucchini w/1/8 t. MLS (VV)
Pear (F)

Snack - LA Lite

Dinner:
Lean Cuisine Lasagna (PS)

I don't like the LA Lite bars. They are gritty and have a wierd aftertaste to me. I also hate spending the 400 or so calories on them when there is real food to be had! Any help here? We don't go back until tomorrow night.

Andi - your plan looks great to me. The only thing I see right off the bat that may be a little bit of a hinderance is that you may see a slower loss if you use the frozen meals 2 days in a row, because of the sodium content. The book doesn't say that, but I've had the counselors tell me that. I think others have too.

About the Lites, I would suggest trying the Luna bars. Those have nutritional values very similar to the LA Lites. They are also truly delicious and there is a wide variety of flavors. The only thing is that if you do choose to use the Lunas, you should tell your center you are still eating Lites, only that you are buying them off ebay or getting them from "a friend." Otherwise you could affect the chances of getting your rebate.

You could also do the plan without the LA Lites. Karen M/C was able to make it to goal without doing the Lites. They modified her plan to account for the missing Lites, and now she's on maintenance - Woo Hoo! I don't think I could go this route, because I do need the occasional sweet, and the sweets allowed by our plan are so limited.

Carmen, thanks for the reminder about the sodium in the frozen dinners.

Tonight is a late night at church, so cooking is out of the question. Plus, I want something that looks more my style of food, you know?

We go tomorrow to get that Free To Live binder. Since my counselor called me this morning and won't be there tomorrow, she has informed someone else about my "situation," so that will certainly be interesting to hear their take on my "craving" problem. There is no way that I'm buying a starch blocker to eat more bread!

Andi -- I have the lc/hc's a few times a week, and I don't take the carb cravers --(but truthfully, I'm not that much of a bread person) just drink lots of water!

I will say this about having a limited amount of starches a day - I really think it's helped me with my sugar cravings. . .

I didn't get a free to live binder - it seems to only be available to people who go to franchise centers not corporates.

Ok, I'm posting my FitDay Link; but you have to remember I have been in maintenance since 7/11/05 and I was in stabilization from 5/30/05 - 7/10/05. I even list my cheats in FitDay....

I'm not sure how far back it will let you go.

My xH family is originally from Bossivain, VA. Other than that I don't know anything about them. My maiden name is Davis, and my new married name will be Byrum. As far as I know my father's family is from around here in NC. My DFI's family are originally from Arkansas.
