Hey every one. I'm totally new to South Beach and started for real Tuesday. I'm actually having a great time. I'm not used to eating fruit or juice, and the hardest thing to kick has been my candy habit. I'm hoping that this really works for me, as I am currently 287 with a goal weight of 175. I've started experiancing infertility because of my weight and I have had enough. Today was a great day. Yesterday I was so hungry I couldn't see straight. Today has just been great. Not too bad on cravings, and full. Life is good. I'm hoping that the rest of the week continues like this! I'm thinking of taking a little extra time on Phase I before I SLOOOWLY add in Phase II stuff.

Congratulations on your start. The first couple of days are hard, but when you think about it, what's a couple of days out of your whole life? It'll get better. Everyone has a vice they have to get over. Yours is candy, mine was fast food. But you'll feel great once you've kicked the habit. Good call on easing into phase 2. I made the mistake of jumping right in, and have put on a couple of pounds. I think I'll try your way. Keep up the good work!!:carrot:

well, my co worker has lost 85 pounds and kept it off for 2+ years. She essentially follows phase one, except for having low carb tortillas during the week. I'm good with that, considering 90% of my favorite foods are on phase one. I also had a fast food problem, but I have started getting ill every time I eat it so I stopped before I started on a diet. I'm really looking forward to loosing weight!
