Thumbs up Tomorrow marks phase 1, day 1...

I am ready. Back to the beach I go....

I went to the store and bought foods to last me the week and beyond. Plenty of veggies, beans, soups, low fat cheese, nuts, and lean proteins.

I packed my lunch for tomorrow--lots of veggies. In fact mostly veggies, mixed in with some lunch meat, hummus, and low fat cheese.

My family is on board--they aren't going to eat on plan, but they have my back.
I also have a bet with them--if I can lose 50 pounds, my mother will quit smoking and my brother will pay for me to have lasik surgery on my eyes. The goal is to lose as much weight as possible before my June 18th wedding.

I am nervous, but I am ready. And I am sure I will be turning to 3FC for tons of support.

Sweet dreams Chicks! Best of luck to those of you on phase 1...or 2, or 3

Great! Best of luck and keep with it! I think tomorrow I too will be ready for phase 1 day 1. I have been on 1.5 to ease myself back into a strict 1 as per some insight from a lovely lady who noticed I was having a rather difficult journey this time around. So good luck to you and wish me luck!

Good vibes to everyone starting phase one today. We are all here and for you. Make yourself your number one priority and check in often to let us know how you are doing. It does help.

I will remain on plan for one full year without giving up no matter what!

One for every ten pounds lost

1st goal by 01/01/11 - 270 met 12 31 10!
2nd goal by 03/19/11 - 250 lbs met 03 16 11
3rd goal - 242 lbs Oops - have to work on this one again.
4th goal - 212 lbs when I will move from being obese to just overweight

Great motivations! Good luck, you can do this!

/Side Note - Lasik surgery was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I think you'll enjoy the results once you get there

Thank you for the support and encouragement! It is great motivation! And I really love that I can go online and receive so much great support.

Violet, I have been posting what I eat on the "on plan" thread but I would love to compare. Hope everything is okay with the floods--I teach geography and we were talking about that this morning. Good luck!

to The Beach, sarahsk! You sure have some great incentives to lose weight, and I wish you great success!

Laneebm! I hope after reading the book that you do decide to join us here on The Beach. It's more than just low fat and sugar-free, though, so make sure you read the book thoroughly before starting on this plan. We look forward to getting to know you.

Laugh often
Wine alot
