The Extension of Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet

Well today should have been the end of Phase 1 for me. I choose to extend it until next Sunday and start Phase 2 on Monday the 9th. I have researched it a bit and have found due to the fact that I'm morbidly obese that I can continue on Phase 1 for up to 2 months, though I think till Sunday is suffice. If I see my losses slow down, I can always go back to Phase 1. I found that Phase 1 was so clear cut and easy to follow I'm actually a little bit scared to go to the next level, also I fear if I get to eat more I won't lose weight, but I know for a fact that is not true.

Today we went to see my friend at the hospital, he's in ICU and in bad shape from the drinking. My husband has worked out an after care plan for him in a treatment center and then a half way house, so he should be OK for the next few months anyway and hopefully this time it'll sink in that he can't drink.

What did I eat today? Well, I was a bad girl in the sense that we didn't eat nearly enough once again. It's weird, the hunger bothers hubby more then it bothers me which is usually the opposite with us. Last night he had a dream that we had bread. I think that's hysterical because we use to be big bread eaters and now there is no bread in the house and it's haunting his dreams LOL!

Egg as usual but I added shaved turkey and fried that in with everything, it was quite tasty!

nothing, went on errands, visited friend in hospital, I think I had a piece of cheese.

chicken and salad, I chopped up the chicken and mixed it up in a delicious romain salad with some Ranch Dressing.

Jell-o with a teaspoon of sugar free whipped cream

So yes I was bad today, not nearly enough food, so I'm suspecting the scale won't budge tomorrow because my body will probably think I'm in starvation mode (poor thing).

That's it for now!

interesting about the nearly enough again! yet I SO recall that happening with clients when they shifted to ATKINS (not SB as it wasnt out then)

and the bread dreams? HILARIOUS.
