Stacie - Wish I could. That's one thing I miss about the States!

Missmess - Glad you had a good shopping trip! What an ego booster!!!

I had read in the South Beach Diet book how people were nervous to go from Phase 1 to Phase 2 and I thought to myself at the time, "Wouldn't you just be glad to add stuff back into your diet?" but now I understand why that nervous feeling happens. We've found we're doing well eating this way so I'm worried I'll stall everything out by adding things back in. I think what I'm going to do is start with the "wholest" grain thing I can think of and add that back in and wait a couple days to see if it triggers cravings. If not, I'll add some other Phase 2-approved thing back in, and so on. I can't wait for the strawberries, either, Schmoodle! I've been drooling over them every time I pass them in the produce section to get my peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, and romaine! You could always go picking this weekend and freeze them, if that wouldn't be a temptation for you.

Good work everyone! We should figure out at the end of the week how much we've lost as a group!

One week down, one to go! Hope you guys don't mind if I post some goals for myself. Making them public makes me feel more accountable to them.

*Some kind of EXERCISE every day - On days we have to be on base for something, I have a four mile round trip walk and I am definitely counting that as my exercise for the day. But on the days we're just bumming around the house, I want to get my rear in gear and do something after Tom gets home from work.

*NO CHEATS! If I made it through one week without cheating, I WILL make it through the whole Phase 1. My mantra is going to be "Don't ruin it now!"

*Try two NEW recipes - Keeping things interesting has helped me feel less deprived.

*ONLY weigh on Friday. I weighed this morning (it's Friday here) so I'd like to go the whole week without worrying what the scale says. If I'm sticking to my diet, there's no need to be worried about the numbers. I'm hoping this will keep me from getting discouraged if the scale won't budge.

OK, I think that's good for now. Don't want to overwhelm myself!

So it is day four. I had to send out an email today to get support from friends. I was so sad yesterday. Its my own fault I did not plan my meals well at all. I had a talk with a friend who is on fat smashers and she introduced me to spaghetti squash. I had it for lunch and loved it. I had a renewed hope that I can do it. I have been looking for recipes and I am so glad I found this sight. I am going to try the waffles tomorrow!! Good luck to everyone!!

Hello to everyone. This tread literally exploded overnight!

For me, the first thing I will add back in phase 2 will be: oatmeal. Yum!

Good Morning Everyone! I'm gagging down my morning eggs for the last time! Tomorrow it's oatmeal. I am going to go very slow adding things back in, just one or two things the first week. I am nervous too about being around those temptations. I did SBD once before and did great until I hit Phase II, then I think I followed the menus in the book and it was too much too soon. My cravings came back and I ended up quitting. After dinner last night, a friend came and got me and we walked for half an hour. It was fun! I haven't been worrying about exercise until I got past the Phase I weakness (also, because I hate to exercise), but I know it's time now. Today, I'll go to the pool and swim because it's going to be HOT!!!

Good Morning... I'm new here and would like to join you... Today is Day 14 of Phase 1 for me.

I'm a little nervous to start Phase 2 tomorrow. I think I'll add an apple every afternoon next week and see if I still lose weight and if it adds any cravings. My plan is to add foods very slowly.

It's day 5 for me and it's also my weigh in day. I'm excited to see how I've done so far. I did a pretty good job of not cheating (except for one lunch with my mom on Tuesday) but I didn't do much exercising. I work for the postal service and do a lot of standing, walking and lifting heavy trays of mail for 8 hours a night though so I think that counts as a little bit of exercise

I'd love to try the shrimp scampi recipe! My hubby hates shrimp but I work 2nd shift so we don't eat the same dinners most of the time anyway. I'm not sure what I'm going to add back first in Phase 2. I was thinking about whole wheat tortillas so I can take wraps to work for dinner but I may try oatmeal for breakfast instead. Last time I did SB I had the same problem that Schmoodle had, I added things back too fast and ended up quitting. This time I'm going to stick with it!

Morning P1 chickies!

Weighed myself today because I will be spending the weekend where there is no scale, down 5 lbs. However, it is that time of the month, so i am probably retaining some water and would probably be down more, but 5 lbs in 6 days is good enough for me. I have a long list of exercise activities planned for this weekend, tonight includes walking the parent's puppies probably down to the playground and around the path there (3 blocks to the playground, about a 1 mile course once there), tomorrow is a bike ride (not sure how long or how many miles, but its exercise), and sunday is probably a hike with the puppies. Then I get to drive back to my apartment and work on a thesis paper.

So when I weigh in monday I should be down a little more, and once my lovely "friend" is finished, hopefully a little more will come off!

Have a good weekend ladies, I will be back to chat on Monday!
