South Beach 2.0

I couldn't get Weight Watchers to work for me.  I counted my points and still wasn't losing anything!!  And I have to see INSTANT results or I get discouraged.  AND I have a bit of a sugar problem.  If I'm allowed to eat it, I'mma eat it.  It's just that simple.  I felt like WW was letting me have too many calories so I got back on South Beach Phase 1 on June 3rd and so far, I've lost six pounds.  I had so much success with South Beach last year so I KNOW it works.  You just gotta DO RIGHT OH MY GOD AND NOT EAT SKITTLES.  

So I've gotten back to eating eggs, turkey bacon, veggies and lots and lots of low fat cheese, cottage, ricotta, shredded cheddar, string, those yummy little Laughing Cow wedges, Babybels, you name it.  I had to refresh my memory on some SB-friendly recipes that I liked so much last year like ricotta cheesecake and egg muffins (which is more like a quiche than a muffin.  Scrambled eggs, green peppers, ham or bacon, cheese, salt, pepper all mixed together and baked in a muffin pan).  It really hasn't been hard to get back on track.

I only cheated once.  At the movies with the girls from work last week.  With Skittles.  

Father's Day is this weekend and we'll celebrate my birthday, too, and I already told Mama months ago that I wanted pot roast, potatoes and carrots for dinner.  I'll be cheating that day.  I'll be off Phase 1, though, so I'll have a little wiggle room.

My goal for the summer is still to lose 20 pounds.  14 more to go!  If I lose 14 more pounds, I'll weigh that lie I told on my drivers license.  :)


  1. Good for you. Not the lie but sticking to something that works for you. Proud of you.

  2. GOOOOOD luck...know you can do it!
    Just don't get so skinny a puff of wind becomes your worst enemy...LOL

    LUV ya

  3. My problem is jelly beans - since Easter, though, I can't find any (and believe me , I've looked...). It's for the best....

    Oh sugar...it's totally my downfall. I can say no to chips and whatnot all day long, but sugar warms my heart...or it did. Not any longer (except on special occasions). haha!

    We can do this, girl! We've proved it in the past! Back on the wagon - you and me - we got this!!! =)

  4. I need to lose a total of 50 pounds by the end of the year... I've lost 12 by not really doin much of anything except cutting out tea and sweets... go figure right? 12 pounds off just that? Geeze... Anyway, I've plato'ed and need a boost... I don't have time for the gym, but I know that would do the trick... Could you send me some recipes that you like from SB? A couple of people at work are doin it and I really wanna see what it's all about...

  5. I'm glad you found what works for you. :-) I just might start lying about my weight, but I do have a little excuse. ;-)
