Hello all,

I am completely new to South Beach. I followed the Atkins plan for about 6 months and lost around 30lbs about two years ago, once I decided it wasn't for me, I slowly put the weight back on and have carried it ever since. I'm sick of it and I'm taking control.

I've heard great things about SBD, and I found 3FC extremely helpful on my Atkins journey, so I'm slinking in again to try and lose my extra weight permanently.

Day 1: Phase 1 starts today. :carrot:

Guzzling water right now! I can't wait to get to the shops and buy everything I need to eat right.

Thanks cottagebythesea. I remember one of my Atkin's favourites, Mock Danish, which seems to be SBD friendly - I'll make that tomorrow

Welcome

Hope you like SB on phase 2 as much as I do. At first I didn't think I'd keep losing but I do.

Glad to have you on the beach
