Awww, Sunshine! He's going to think you're a knock-out no matter what you look like! My husband left for Korea over two months before I brought the kids over and I was stressing about looking perfect for him...until I realized that I would be walking off a seventeen hour plane ride with seven checked bags and six carry-ons and there was no way I was going to even be presentable! I don't think I remembered to brush my hair before getting off the airplane.

Jump back on the wagon and keep your chin up. You can do it!

Hey all, just checking in quick before I head off to work. I started yesterday and did pretty well. I think today I need to take a lot more snacks to work. I work in retail, so it's hard to predict what level of activity I'll have. Yesterday turned out to be a very active day. Probably the hardest part of the day was lunch. I had to sit with my back to the snack machine because that habit is soo strong. But I ate quick, then went outside to talk on my phone. I was also exceptionally hungry by the time I got off work at 9 and ended up gobbling my dinner (thank goodness I packed it too) at a friend's house.

Yesterday's eating:
B: 2 microwave scrambled eggs w/ fresh mozzarella, V8, sliced tomato
S: 15 almonds, string cheese, celery with hummus
L: Salad, 1/2 giant grilled chicken breast, 1/2 avocado
D: Kim Chi Guk (Korean Kim Chi soup), salad

Hello everyone! I'm on Day 3 and feeling good. I had 2 slices of turkey bacon, a cheese stick and V8 for breakfast and celery w/hummus for a snack. Not sure what I'll make for lunch yet ...
I'm showing a loss on the scale already but will wait until next week for an "official" weigh-in.

Kara,
Aren't those Indian spiced lentils the best? If I don't control myself I want to eat the entire pan whenever I make them. My Mom (who also does SB) and I both usually make them at least once a week. One of these days I'm going to get around to making up a lentil soup that uses the same seasonings . . . then you can get all the benefits of a broth-based soup and the excellent taste of these lentils.

Hello Everyone!!!
Im droping pounds like crazy!! Monday I was 194.5, today Im 189.5!!! Im 5 pounds away from my first goal. If I could finish phase 1, and be at 184. I would be sooo happy!! I even think I could probaly have lost more, if I atejust chicken, salad, cheese and eggs. But this is so much better Im making some brownies I got on this website, they look so good!! And Im going to try another recipe on here for the shrimp scampi. I love all these recipes!! I really think I can do this!! Goodluck Everyone!!

Congrats Stacie! Much more motivation to stick with it huh? Don't limit yourself to just the chicken, cheese, and eggs...go wild, eat a variety of things and you won't feel deprived. The brownies on the website are exactly what i needed for a chocolate fix. Keep up the good work chickie!

Thank You Stardust!!! I think I just found my new love!!! The shrimp scampi, OMG!!! Its sooo good.. I got it on the phase 1 entrees. I added a little low-fat cheese to it, and it came out like a fondu, on top of brocolli. ITS AMAZING!!!

Stacie,
I recently re-added brown rice the first week and whole wheat bread the week after that and it is working very well for me. Oatmeal is another great thing to re-add--it will introduce some more variety into your breakfasts if that is something that you had wanted the cereal for.

I can't wait to try the shrimp scampi! Shrimp is one of my absolute favorite foods. The first thing I will add back is oatmeal. I've been dreaming about it for days now. I'm having a hard time gagging those eggs down every morning. Then I'll add some strawberries. The picking season here is almost over, and I usually go with my kids and pick a bunch to freeze, make jam, and just eat. I've really been missing it this year. I hope there's still some left on Saturday when I hit DAY 15!!

The Shrimp Scampi, has got to be the best thing Ive had in a very long time, including all my carb-ulicious foods. Let me know what you think of it!!! Add cheese if you'd like for some fondu!!! I have no idea what food I want back. Maybe some cheap whole grain cereal. I dont want pasta and bread anymore!! Very weird.. But I just dont seem to interested in it anymore. Those were my weak spots. So when we start phase 2, is it just one kind of carb per day??
