Phase I Starters 2008
Some folks have already started Phase I but there will be a big influx of new folks on January 1. Let's get the new thread started so we can support each other as a group rather than having individual and repetitive threads.

If you are new, please do an introduction post and then join this group.

Ruth you are always on the ball. I am going to spend the week end re reading the book and getting ready for Jan 1st.

My big plans for tomorrow are to clean out the pantry and fridge and finalize my P1 menu. Monday we're doing our big P1 grocery shopping and prep. I may also cook a few meals to freeze. Monday night we're going to a casual bash at our friends' place, so we're going to be quite lax until then. Tuesday the gloves come off!!

I need to order a new copy of the book as my copy "walked" off. I think it may be in the hands of my BIL's ex-girlfriend, but I'm not sure. Off to B&N!!

Ruthxxx 12-28-2007 04:08 PM

Kim, WAIT! A revised copy will be out at the end of April 2008. Amazon is taking pre-orders. Be sure to use the 3FC link to order so the site gets the credit.

Kim_Star060404 12-28-2007 04:09 PM

Thanks, Ruth. I knew I had heard about the revised edition, but I wasn't sure when it's coming out. I'll be sure to use the link!

Count me in! Tuesday's the big day. I'm going to plan menus and shop this weekend. I think I'll plan all 2 weeks of Ph1 so it's a no-brainer. I'm very excited and ready to get back to normal.

Kim_Star060404 12-28-2007 05:54 PM

That's what I'm doing, Schmoodle. Planning every bite down to my pre-workout snacks. That's the only way for me to stay on track. (Besides coming to 3FC every day! :D)

I'm using the weekend to use up or throw out all the Frankenfood, and am also planning my menus for the next 2 weeks of Phase 1. Every meal and snack will be planned, so there's no room for excuses for me.
Now if only this darned ankle would heal already, so I can get back to exercising again.

I started Phase 1 on 12/16, so am a few days in. I have not been eating as balanced as I should, but will do a good grocery shop on Sunday. This is at least detoxing my body if nothing else. :)

What motivation you all have! My plan is to go through the book again and get the stuff I need on Monday. Glad this thread was started I will be here often.

I am there with you all, I am planning on doing the full two weeks of Phase I to get back on track and get the ball rolling again. I actually have to work on New Years Day but am already planning in my head what I need to pack for work to stay on track that day. I am glad there will be lot's of us doing phase I together will keep me motivated.

Going to try Phase 1
Hello all... I'm new to South Beach... got to goal on Weight Watchers and have pretty much maintained my weight until the past 6 months... a little too much freedom and I feel like all I eat is lower fat carbs... need to try something a little different to get back in control!

I have many questions and know that this is a great place to be for support. I am shopping today and will come back frequently as I've already read so many great posts!

Happy New Year to all!

Today is menu planning and pantry cleaning, Monday is going to be a huge shopping trip. I have cleaned up my act since Christmas, though, so Ph1 won't be as much as a shock to my system, I hope.

KO 12-29-2007 03:10 PM

Just Peapodded all my groceries and tomorrow and Monday will be spent Adiosing all the foul non SBD Ickyness from my pantry!
Tomorrow is Menu planning But I know I'm making a meatloaf tomorrow and Taco Bake on Monday
Bring it on!
Now where are my boxing gloves ;)

McMoo 12-29-2007 03:45 PM

Hi Everyone,

I am very excited to start 2008 off with a clean slate and make some real healthy changes in my life.

Happy (AND HEALTHY) New Year!
