This is my first post. I have lurked around a lot and have found so many wonderful ideas! Well a little about my weight loss journey and goals.....8 years ago I lost 70lbs. I was able to keep my weight steady for 5 years. However, after having my son 3 years ago I have noticed extra weight creeping back on. I have put on 30lbs since the birth of my son. I am at the end of my rope with weight loss methods. I have tried everything and none of them work anymore! I don't know if it is a hormonal imbalance or what. I just know that I want to feel good about myself again. I want to be healthy!!!!! I have hypoglycemia so I am always feeling like I need to eat. I don't eat sugar or refined carbohydrates.
I have done South Beach before but have never made it past the first week!! I am starting right now. It is dinner time but I didn't want to wait until tomorrow. :dust:

I love this attitude. :broc: You're going to do great. You're already familiar with the program so you can jump right back in. Let us know how it goes as you go through the first two weeks!
