Thanks ladies! I got back on the wagon immediately both times...it was just bad planning on my part but I had no intention of letting my slip-ups derail my entire diet. I even cooked extra chicken and green beans with last nights dinner so I already had lunch ready to go today! It is now day 12 and I am down 6 pounds (even despite it being TOM!) and I will be starting phase 1.5 on Monday. I am so thankful for SB! woohoo!

Most of us fall off the wagon sometimes. Just get back on ASAP.

We all have those moments. You don't start over..you just go on. You identified the issue - poor planning on your part. And making the choice to eat off plan. Yes the weight loss might be slower, you may have a trigger or two - but realistically you are still in phase 1 and it takes a couple days to knock out cravings which you still have a few days of p1. Plan on transitioning to phase 1.5 on day 15 and finish up phase 1. And seriously- I have seen folks that when they "cheat", they throw their hands up and cheat for an entire day/couple days...etc... emoticon

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

I am currently on phase 1 day 9. So far, I have really loved South Beach because it hasn't been that hard for me to follow and I feel like I am starting to learn how to eat properly. I have lost 5 pounds so far and I haven't had any bad cravings except for the first few days.

My only problem seems to be with planning out meals and snacks. (I am a procrastinator! lol) I did really well with my meal/snack planning in the first week but need to get back on track. Things have been crazy around my house. I just started a new job in my career, so now I have 2 jobs and my fiance just went back to grad school full time yesterday.

Cheat 1: Sunday (my ph1 day7) we were running around California for a family event and happened to pass by a Sonic. We don't have one nearby and in my "old life" we stopped there to get one of their drink concoctions every time we were "lucky" enough to pass by one. I was starving because I didn't bring enough snacks with me and in a spur of the moment weakness ordered a small lemon cream slush. Fortunately, no cravings and I continued on with SB right after. In fact, that sugary drink gave me a horrible tummy ache and I almost had him pull the car over so I could throw up.

Cheat 2: Today (ph1 day9) is my long day, working at both jobs. I did not have a lunch prepared today. My fiance was running errands and decided to pick up lunch for us. He was going to Panda Express, so I said get me chicken with string beans but only get me the entree. I started eating my lunch, which came in a bowl and I discovered that there was chow mein noodles under my chicken. Noodles are my favorite thing and they were right in front of me rather than hidden like all the other carbs in my house. So I ate them.

Anyway, those are my 2 cheats and I'm feeling guilty about them. I know they are going to affect my phase 1 weight loss. I know phase 1 is supposed to get rid of your cravings. I feel like I cheated both times not because I was craving, but more because I failed to plan and let my hunger-monster control my eating decisions. Like I said, SB hasn't been that hard for me unless I fail to plan out my meals. So whats done is done and I can't take it back.

I am wondering if there is anything I should do now with my eating? Like stay on phase 1 for an extra day? Or should I start phase 1 all over again because I cheated? Or should I just start 1.5 on day 15? Any ideas on what I should do? Thanks! :)
