Hi, everyone

My name is Kayla & I am on day 3 of Phase I, my first ever adventure into South Beach diet territory Hoping to post here to give & recieve support, encouragement & accountability!

And also, if anyone sees anything that I am eating that might not be right for phase I, please let me know! Thanks

Mock French Toast
1 T. Walden Farms zero calorie/zero sugar peanut spread
a few sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
3 turkey sausage links

Large iceburg & spinach salad with broccoli, red pepper, cucumbers, 1/4 C. fat free cheddar cheese & 5 oz. baked chicken breast
2 T. sugar free/calorie free dressing

1 oz. walnuts
1 light cheese stick

2 boiled eggs
steamed broccoli & cauliflower
1 C. skim milk

1 serving sugar free Jell-o

I struggle with getting in a vegetable in the morning. The cravings aren't too bad for carbs, thankfully, but I am having a hard time with headaches & feeling kind of tired. I'm hoping this is "normal" and will pass in a few days?

Glad to be here!!

the headaches and fatigue are pretty normal, especially since you're on day 3. expect 1-2 more days of it, and then as your body starts to adjust, the headaches will go away and your energy will come back.

I struggle with a veggie in the morning as well. when you start phase 2, it might be easier because you can always throw some in a smoothie along with some fruit and be fine. I usually just make sure that I get my 4.5 cups of veggies in at some other point in the day.

100 lbs. down plus a carrot for every 5 more

This weekend I was totally ridiculous with off plan foods. Not to mention that I ate WAY too many on plan foods as well...ugh! I couldn't stop stuffing my face!! Why oh Why!! I paid for it with a four pound gain on the scale from last week....argh!

So...today I was back on plan!! All day long!! I started my Insanity workout again. And I had hubby take some pics of me, wearing the same outfit I was wearing at my high weight of 214. I can SEE the difference!! Talk about inspiration! My fat rolls are definitely smaller...lol So, onward I go...trudging along. Finally feeling like I just might be able to reach my goal of 175 by 1/1/2011!

Re-start date: 9/22/2014
Goal 1: Reach 220 lbs - Date Achieved: ??
Goal 2: Reach 210 lbs - Date Achieved: ??
Goal 3: Reach ONE-derland - Date Achieved: ??
Goal 4: Reach 175 lb - Date Achieved: ??
Goal 5: Reach 150 lb - Date Achieved: ??

It's so annoying how a weekend of little cheats adds up to make the cravings/hungriness return. I've been eating so much today and I was still really snacky feeling all day! Doing Phase 1.5 for the next few weeks until I can get below 130.

B: Turkey with cream cheese, apple and cheese stick
S: Bell pepper with hummus
L: Salad and chili
S: Peanuts, celery with cream cheese
D: Chili, SF fudgesicle

Hmm.. that doesn't actually look too terrible now that I've typed it all out. Hopefully the scale will start scooting along soon.

Was up 0.5lbs today, not sure why.Thinking maybe I had more sodium than usual and not enough water. Here was my food for today:

B: 2 egg muffins (turkey pepperoni, onions, lf cheese, tomato)
S: celery
L: chicken kale soup, lf string cheese, 1/2 bell pepper
S: 1 oz cashews, lf string cheese
S2: skim latte
D: turkey chili
S: tea and chocolate ricotta creme

Pretty good today, although I got hungry an hour or so after lunch and had my snack early, I think it was just thirst maybe...here's to a drop on the scale for all of us tomorrow!
