USER NAME: SunshineMia
STARTING WEIGHT/CURRENT WEIGHT/GOAL: 241/221/140
MARITAL STATUS: Single
PETS: Just the plants!
WORK: social worker
HOBBIES: Reading, pool, singing (to myself!), seeing friends, spoiling the nieces and nephews
FAVORITE EXERCISE: Biggest Loser DVDs, Zumba class
FAVORITE FOODS: Chocolate, thai food, milk, sweets, spicy edamame
CHALLENGES: My love of sweets and empty carbs. Also, the daily migraine med I take makes my metabolism move at a snail's pace (like my doctor says, it will make carbs stick to me like glue!), so any weight loss is hard-won.
WHY SOUTH BEACH: My doctor recommended it, and I hate counting calories, so this is more straightforward.
REASON FOR WANTING TO LOSE WEIGHT: Of course I would love to be able to buy cute clothes, but at this point, it's just necessary for my health.
