I have been on the SS for two weeks and lost a total of 8 pounds which is great for someone of my small frame (5'0, 136 puonds). So Sunday I start FF1. If I am correct I will be adding 1/2 cup of quinoa daily. Is that correct? I have just ordered my FF1 book from Amazon. But, you know us...gotta plan, plan, plan. Any other changes I should make as a transition to FF1?
Just put on a pair of black pants to wear out tonight. Prior to SS the pants "fit" but with a big muffin top splurging out above the waistline that I chose to ignore. Now they fit with ease and I can breathe. Aahhh....keep up the good slurping.
Leafpeeper --- your best bet is to wait on any changes until you've had a chance to read and 'digest' the FF chapter on Phase 1. That's way you'll be sure to get started with your best foot forward. BTW, Wendy's right --- quinoa comes later in the journey

Congrats on the 8lbs, that's wonderful. Janine is right, check out P2, that'd be my suggestion on where to go next as well.
Let us know how it's continuing to go for you!
