Hanging in there-weigh in results (Jennifer)

I am hanging in there on my variation of the South Beach diet.  It still feels odd eating so much meat. And I am watching my cheese intake so my stomach doesnt get too out of whack. Yesterday we were out and I was starving.  This is a constant battle I am finding on this plan.  I just dont know what to eat...ever.  Veggies and meat and cheese is the jist I get out it.  I had gotten used to my staple foods that I love and get me through,  but most of them(like 99%) are not allowed on the first 2 weeks of the South Beach plan.  But I am trying to hang in there because the next phase will likely be much easier for me.  I can add my foods back in and pretty much return to the way I was eating.  South Beach wants you to eat whole grains and such.  I already dont eat many plain white bread products or bad sugars since losing the 65 lbs and I try to eat whole grain whenever possible.  I am a changed person in that aspect I think :)  So,  the next phase which is in 11 days (who's counting though, right?) should be better.  I have a re-appreciation of food which will help with my eating in moderation.  I think it is just what I needed.  Sometimes I think it is easy for me to lose that appreciation of food, and to get it back is one of the keys to my success.

Oh, todays weigh in:  164.6.  I am getting back down there. 

Hope you all are having a great day :)

I can certainly relate to appreciating foods!! I can't wait until my transition phase when I will enjoy some fruits again! Best of luck on the South Beach plan... I know you can do it! :)

Don't you just love how easy it is to put on weight but how damn hard it is to get it off? That just drives me insane. Why can't certain things in life be easy? I wish there was a way to change certain things with the blink of an eye or twitch of the nose. Oh well...we have to keep on movin'.

That always gets me too! And, I always feel like a lot of preparation has to go into that diet, do you? Always cooking meat! My tummy gives me trouble as well. You can do it for 2 weeks though. Hang in there.

Congrats on your loss - you've accomplished a lot. I'm going to start the South Beach Diet too. Since finishing my Labor Day challenge, I have not done very well and need something restrictive so will stop at the store tomorrow and buy some of the food that's on the Phase 1 list.
