Too much cheese! Substitute out some of that cheese for dairy. We are allowed 2 cups on phase 1 and dairy is milk and/or yogurt. Cheese can stall weight loss and most folks can tolerate a couple servings while in phase 1 but not always. A serving is 1 ounce (or in case of ricotta or cottage 1/2 cup)..
The veggie patty - normally there are grains in it (if you purchased it so you might want to check the ingredients).
Sounds like you are getting in the 4 1/2 cups of veggies.
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
