I don't like yolks and only eat the whites. There is a thread on the team forums with breakfast suggestions. Think outside the box. You can eat whatever you want to for breakfast as long as it is on the plan.

It seems as we get older that we have to juggle many medical conditions that can often require different dietary restrictions. I'm glad that many of mine are helped by the same restrictions.

The combination of Diabetes/Diabetes 2 and gluten intolerance is difficult to manage. But I find following South Beach phase 2 the best plan. Getting the sugar out of your system is the hardest part and takes a week or 2 but it is really worth it. Journaling your food here in SparkPeople really helps with the motivation and seeing where your problems come from. People here care so come back frequently.

South Beach is a great diet and it is excellent for taking off weight in the midsection. Welcome to the team. Be sure and read the sticky threads. There is tons of great info in them.

Afternoon All, hope you are enjoying your day/evening.

Me, ready to get back to the SB way of eating. Not feeling 100% just yet, but eating junk is not helping matters. We are celebrating my ds' birthday today and he wanted shrimp and spaghetti for his meal with chocolate cake for dessert so that is what we are having. Tomorrow I will begin again and hopefully will stick more closely to SB than I have been.

It is too hot here again. I really enjoy winter, with a big fire in the fireplace and tea, lots of tea. I have a huge teapot and a smaller size I can actually lift. lol

Today I have to go to the grocery store yet again for some diabetic boost for my son. We all think that he is getting overly thin. My daughter works him harder than I do so I think we need to boost his calories. We have no way of weighing him as he still is not free standing and there is nowhere in town that can measure him and the wheelchair.

It is so hot that I don't really want to go out. Plus I am sick of spending money. I think I need a quiet life for a while.

Me, hanging in there. Started back on SB, got sick, and threw all the good eating out the window. Will begin again on Tuesday as crackers and such are the only things I am eating right now.

With a slight nudging over the acceptable food guidelines to celebrate my husband's promotion, this weekend has been very productive. Since the Idaho/Montana fires are surrounding us, we decided to skip camping this weekend just stay home. We shopped for a new tv (ours quit working and we found ourselves demonstrating gross withdrawal symptoms). We mucked out the garage yesterday. BIG JOB! I sweated buckets of "melted fat tears" and was too dirty to snack, so yesterday was great.Today, we will be active. I hope we get some of that rain to put out the fires. Just send those sprinkles to Western Montana! emoticon

It is hard on a holiday weekend with family and friends around to want to track food. I am trying to make choices, thinking how it fits in the SB plan and how it will look on my food tracker. So far so good only two more BBQs to go. Everyone have a great weekend.

Morticia I hope you feel better by the end of the weekend

I'm still under the weather so my weekend will be spent at home making food as healthy as I can make it and still satisfy the boys. We finally got a rain but we never get what was promised.

Its crazy that its September! Not looking forward to rains and storms. Maybe we will see another month of sun if we are lucky. One can hope!

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend - try to eat wisely!

If the blood sugar is fasting it could still be rising and dripping in response to carbs. I had undiagnosed hypoglycemia a long time before they found it.

Well, I had been doing really well for several weeks and then I went on vacation for a few days. I went into it planning on eating and drinking non-beachy things, so I'm not beating myself up about it or feeling like I failed. I am, however, struggling with cravings that had gone away so many weeks ago! I'm going to stick to P1 for a few days before I even step on the scale. I need to try to drink lots of water too, which I'm not good at, to flush out all the extra sodium. I haven't decided how I'll handle the holiday weekend yet! I'm glad to be back!

Lordy I am running like a mad woman. Sunday was my daughter's birthday so Aliegh and I went shopping for her. Aliegh picked a head band ribbon for her mom...which of course mom won't wear but Aliegh loved it...lol. Oh and she picked out m&m's for her mom too! emoticon

Tomorrow is my hubby's birthday. Friday is my god son's birthday. And then we leave for Colorado on Tuesday morning! Let the insanity begin! I am planning on bringing almonds and protein powder to help us get thru any snacks needed for our trip. I go to California the following week for an entire week so I am really scrambling since I will be stuck in a hotel the entire time. Hoping we can do a mini road trip to a grocery store so I can pick up some v8 and anything else I can supplement with and eat salads or meat at night. Maybe maybe I will lose a couple pounds...lol.

We have the clouds moving in (western washington too!) and the rain is a coming. I have enjoyed the sunny walks and not looking forward to rainy ones. We saw two coyotes today! Marley chased them into the woods...lol. Adventures of living near the woods!

My thoughts are with all of you looking at a stormy rest of the week. Out in California we are worried about fires, the hills are really dry.

I understand about eating food off plan. I had stomach flu last week and crackers were the only thing that stayed down. Now I am craving them, I threw the last of them out to get them out of the house but now temptation is going to be back. Relative are coming to stay for a few days. We are having a Labor Day BBQ and usually have chips and crackers with cheese around. I am not sure that I can make it through the weekend. This is when it is hard to make good choices. Maybe duct tape on my mouth would work, or is that a little extreme??

Today is starting off dry but that'll change around 2pm. Hubby and I got outside this morning and cut the grass while we had the chance. Bob can't do but a row or two at a time with his heart condition and with my broken wrist it does make it a challenge but between us we got it done.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

I made the kale chips and I will not do that again. The smell was not very pleasant and it was hard to get it out of the house - smelled like cabbage. (Reminded me of that old commercial where the lady enters the house and says to her hostess "Fried fish last night, Dear?" - can't even remember the product...was it Glade?) In any case, kale chips are off my list....

Evening All, hope you are enjoying your day.

Lily and Vicky, good luck with SB! YOU CAN DO IT!

Eddy, glad you found some dresses to choose from for the wedding this weekend.

Morticia, that's great about your meds being lowered or taken away.

Me, I didn't do well today. Had oatmeal (instant) for breakfast and fish sticks for lunch. I work in a school cafeteria. Will make better choices tomorrow for sure.

Hi everyone. I am doing fantastic on the Beach, This couldn't be easier and I am sort of dredding leaving Phase 1 behind. I read below about Phase 1.5 and copied the tips for that. Friday I start Phase 2 and I am going to try a bowl of oatmeal. But I am going to ease back very slowly.

Mortisha, that is wonderful news about your meds being dropped and lowered.

Where in Oregon is it raining. I live in Western Washington and they say we might see it tomorrow.

Have a good evening!

Back home after a weekend away. I did pretty well on SB but could not resist the homemade lasagna. Back to the veggies and fruit today.

Sunny in Southern California PST

A reminder to everyone who starts the South beach diet. If you are on B.P. meds you may need to call your physical and get them adjusted. Within 3 days of starting phase one I had to call my M.D. and he stopped 2 of my B.P. pills permanently and cut the dose back on the third.

Hi, all! It sounds like there's been some adventure out there, recently :)

We have rain...that's Oregon, for ya! It's rained 2 days in a row. I love this time of year in Oregon, where the rain leaves everything clean. Later, it'll become a bit much.

My brother's wedding is on Sunday and I'm happy to report that I found not one, but 2 dresses I like. I don't know which one I'll wear. Either way, it felt good to get in a dressing room and not be too upset. I've given up on the massive weight loss in the final hours...that's silly and not going to happen. So, just sticking with the Beach and loving life. I'll take a few days off after the wedding, then time for another round of P1. Doing it in rounds and taking a few days off in between is working for me. I'm not losing quickly, but I'm losing!

Hope everyone is well. I never did try the kale chips and all of the SB veggies I got ended up going bad because work got insane and we've been living on grilled chickens, lol! One thing I love about winter is crock pot meals...we always eat well in the winter :)

I guess on that note...any good ideas for prepping summer meals?

Hi everyone. It is a sunny morning in Montana. Unfortunately, the forest fires that are surrounding us are causing the air quality to plummet. Indoor workout for me. I have rediscovered Sweating to the Oldies. What a hoot!

Hope that ole' Isaac fizzles out without too much damage. Got to love this nation. One end has too much rain the other needs a good soaking to put out the fires.

I am reporting a great weekend in Glacier National Park with only a minor break in the food program….pretzels. haha Have a good week!…Barnie

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine according to the power that is within me.

Hello, emoticon
Today my "baby" started college classes and I begin Phase 1...again. I fell off SB awhile ago. I need to get back on track. Have to go through the postings. I know there is a "cheat sheet" here on the team page, somewhere. I will find my copy of the book so I can read it again. I will keep it simple today. A fresh start.

Praying for all of you in Isaac's path. Hopefully he will move quickly and never strengthen into a hurricane. Good luck and stay safe.
Hugs,
Julee

We're getting huge amounts of rain thanks to TS but it could have been a lot worst. I'm afraid Louisianna will get it a lot harder than we in Florida are.
Hope everyone is having a good Monday.

Hello! Dee, I think I'll join you in beginning again tomorrow. Isn't that what Scarlett O'Hara did in Gone with the Wind? I'm aiming for 1 pound per week - and I think I'd be smart to follow your example. Thanks for posting.

Do it, NOW!

Afternoon All, nice to see so much activity on the thread.

Waving emoticon to the new members.

Me, I fell off of SB a while ago and haven't had a chance to get back to it. I started back working a couple of weeks ago and just haven't had the time to sit down and re-read the book. I'm feeling miserable and I know it's because of the excess junk (ie., chips, cheese, crackers, etc., etc.) that I've been eating. Will begin again tomorrow for sure.

Having problems with low B/P this morning. I read an article concerning low B/P that recommended lower carb foods and smaller meals. At least I am on the right track with my eating. Maybe this will be an indication that they need to take me off my B/P medications. emoticon

Good Morning. Hope everyone is having the start of a great Sunday. If you're in the path of the storm, stay safe. We'll get a good bit of rain from it but don't expect to see any damage in our area from it. emoticon

Congrats on the weight loss. Drop in any time. We know people are busy and only have so much time to post.
