I'm joining you all for a few weeks :D.

I've had success with SBD in the past but always end up calorie counting in the end. We've got a lot of big changes coming up soon and keeping track of the numbers won't be practical. Plus, I'd like to do a little sugar detox and SBD is the best way I know how!

I'm excited to jump in here! I went to the store and stocked up on my staples tonight. I'm craving some canadian bacon, eggs, and spinach already! :carrot:

Also-

Those of you already losing weight at a steady .5-1lb a week before starting SBD: did you notice a huge weight loss right off the bat like someone starting from scratch or did your loss continue pretty much the same?

Thanks! So far so good... but my hubs and kids are eating lunch and I'm not in the least bit hungry. I put mine up for later (turkey burger patty with some grilled veggies). Hopefully I'll want it before I head off to work in a few hours. I had 2 eggs and 2 slices of canadian bacon with cheese and V8 for breakfast :).

Good luck!

To answer your question, mine weight loss stayed the same. Although I am more focused on controlling my insulin and building muscle, than losing weight, so I was a little lax with my fat intake.

Glad to have you with us. I doubt you're going to see a huge loss...and if you did, it'd mostly be water. But it will help with cravings!

That's what I thought :). I've been having issues retaining water so I'm hoping this flushes it out! I really REALLY want to get out of the 190's before I see my family at the end of June but I don't know if that's doable. We shall see!

Thank you for the welcomes!
