Congrats hun :) I'm so jealous.. I hope this time I have as much willpower as you and keep going with the diet and not slip up. It's not as hard as I thought it would be giving up my "addiction" foods.

you can do it Jellybean! I have my slip ups here and there but I make sure I get right back on track. I went to disney in may and was not on a diet for the whole week. I did start phase one when I came home though :)

I Am just to excited!! ^___^ It just pumps me up being in a new number range. I tend to lose the first 5 pounds alot easier than the last. Does anyone else do that??

Ya, I lose alot easier on this diet. Usually my stomach growls and I get headaches when I'm hungry but the stuff I've been eating fills me up. I think even my mom notices this time I'm serious about losing weight, she's been buying the foods I need even if it costs more than she usually spends, lol.

BTW, how long did it take you to lose all that weight? I wanna try and get to 170 by Christmas not sure if I can seeing as I will probably hit a plateau sooner or later..

Absolutely true for me. I have been fighting to get these few pounds I need to get into the 170s for a couple of months now. Hopefully I will join you there soon! I would like to get down to 170 by the time DH comes home in November.
I think even my mom notices this time I'm serious about losing weight, she's been buying the foods I need even if it costs more than she usually spends, lol.
jellybean, this is wonderful that your mom is getting on board. Once they see how well you are doing, maybe you will be a good influence on the whole family. good for you sticking with it when it was not so easy!

*dances*

Thanks! It has been alittle over a year or so for the weight to go.. I lost 30 then gained some then lost some.. But these last couple of months have been real serious and I lost 20 YAY. I am so pumped and this diet is soo much easier to work with than atkins that I know I will get to my goal.

I really need to buy clothes LOL.. My too small jeans I bought that were on clearance awhile ago (who can pass up 7 dollars old navy jeans) Now are loose on me :):) I Am down to one sorry dull black.. more like grey gym pants due to washing them every day and most of my shirts just hang on me.

I rave to everyone about this site.. and about South Beach. I really feel like it isn't hard to stick to the plan. I very rarely crave anything bad.. I don't even freak for chocolate at my TOM.

I love coming here and just reading and laughing and knowing that other women are going through what I am and are here to help me continue my weight loss journey.

You guys are the greatest!

Watch out next 49 pounds!!! YOU are next!
