Hi 50/50 girl
Great to see you on the forum. I've only been eating according to the SBD for about 6-weeks, so I'm no expert. But let me suggest that you only weigh yourself once per week. Weigh yourself when you first get up in the morning with the same clothes on every time. Waiting a week between weigh-ins will let you see a real difference, as opposed to some small differences that take place each day. That has worked for me.
Also... You commented on my journal that you hated to list all your food. I don't record what I eat either. As I understand Phase 1, there aren't strict limits on serving size, so I don't worry about it. You could, of course, eat too much of anything, and actually gain weight. I try to eat until just before I am full. Just a few minutes later, I always feel comfortably full.
Here's a typical day for me when I was on P1:
Breakfast (My favorite meal):
2-egg (Whole eggs) omelette with maybe an extra 1/2 egg of Egg Beaters to make the texture more like I like it
Sweet Baby Peppers
Low Fat Mozzarella cheese.
1 1/2 strips of turkey bacon
V-8 juice (I drink it from a juice glass to avoid drinking too much)
Unsweetened Almond milk. (Doesn't taste good, but its good for me)
LF cheese stick
6~8 Almonds if I feel at all hungry (I eat 'em one at a time, and slowly to avoid eating too many)
2 slices of Sun Dried Tomato Turkey Breast cut up in salad
LF Cottage cheese (When I put CC on a salad, I don't need dressing)
I usually skip it, but if hungry, I'd have more LF cheese stick and/or almonds
Evening meal: (I go light on my evening meal because I've found that I sleep better when I'm not too full, and I want to have a dessert)
1 1/2 slices of Sun Dried Tomato Turkey Breast
LF Mozzarella melted on top
LF Cottage cheese
SF Chocolate Pudding/Chocolate Peanut Butter & Whipped Topping/Lemon Pie (Haven't decided my favorite, so I choose one)
I ate this way to keep it really simple and quick to make meals. When I began P2, I added some grapes one day, and 1/2 banana the next day.
About 10-days ago, my wife started the SBD, so I suspect that soon we will try some of the many recipes on the Forum. It appears that we will never get bored with all the choices that P2 gives us.
Hope this helps.
