It's not a "crash diet" it's a life style change.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

 

Stay postive ladies...all it takes is hard work and dedication!!!cheer2.gif

 

AWESOME!! You're my inspiration!! LOL I'm on day 4 of the south beach diet and everything was going great, up until yesterday. I baked a cake for the family, which was a big mistake!! Every time I walked into the kitchen, the delicious looking cake kept staring me in the face. I finally gave into temptation and had a small piece. Boy was it so GOOD!! Then I remembered the purpose of this whole healthy eating thing and how badly I want it. So, I did my Jillian michael's 30 day shred. I didn't feel guilty or bad for myself after having the piece of cake. Funny thing is i'm not really a cake and cookie person. I fell off the wagon once and now i'm sticking to my guns and will ride this out because I really want this!! No more baking in my house. If the family wants cake, they better have it at a restaurant. LOL Are you following any of the south beach diet recipes or your own?

I would go back to day 1 and start all over again. You want to cleanse your body to make sure all the sugars and carbs are out of you for the 1st 2 weeks. There are so many great things you can still have on the diet...it you need a sweet you can have a sugar free fudge bar, sugar free pudding with cool whip, let me know what your craving and I'll give you a recipe. I'll all about being creative and not getting bored with what you're eating.

 

 I hosted a baby shower at my house during phase one I put a lot of snacks out that I could have on the diet like zucchini cheesecake, veggies and dressing, guac and celery, and I made south beach friendly meatballs for myself. All the things I avoided eating: cupcakes, chips, my mom-in law-to beâ€s spinach pie and meatballs (which is one of her specialties), pizza, baked brie...these are all foods I LOVE! I just made sure that I always had something around that I could munch on. The funniest thing, before the party I say to my FI (who is also doing SB with me) I'm nervous that I might pick up something and eat it without even thinking about it and after realize what the hell did I just do. He thought I was absolutely insane...15 minutes later he picks up a chip and puts it in his mouth and spits it out. It's so crazy how our minds can so easily forget.  

 

I'm here for you! You can do it!!

I was thinking the same. Sheesh and I was so looking forward to phase 2 because I love apples especially with peanut butter!! Peanut butter is not as tasty by itself. ugh!! Like i said, i'm not a sweets or dessert junkie. I guess it's just the fact that I can't have it, makes me want it. Yes, it's very easy to forget and eat something you're not supposed to eat. Please do share some recipes. I have the cook book but some of the stuff is so time consuming to make. How are you getting by? Have any simpler recipes?

I hear ya Kristamarie!  I didn't even eat dinner last night, all I had was a shake after the gym.  I thought for sure I'd at least break even this week but nope, I gained a pound as well.  Grrrr......

Krista, in order to get your "true" weight you need to weigh yourself everyday for a month, and average it out! Don't weigh yourself everyday!!! Depending on where you are in your cycle, your weight is going to fluctuate!

I like to weight myself everyday so I know what i can and cannot eat.  Certain foods tend to stick on me.
