I started South Beach today.

I am a naturally very slow loser, but I don't care how long it takes me. I have health issues, so I know I'll have to eat this way the rest of my life. The tortoise won the race.

Welcome, I'm pretty new here too. I started the end of March and really love this way of eating. Good luck and I hope you will be pleasantly surprised and have a good steady loss.

Good luck! I absolutely love South Beach. The key is to get creative with your meals or else you will get bored QUICK. There are so many ideas and recipes in this forum that are really good and you see just how easy it is to eat this way for life!

Welcome! You'll love it. I was overwhelmed at first, but you'll quickly acclimate. You'll feel so great, and also lose. Sometimes I'm sitting there relaxing and wonder why I'm not up using the energy I have. So I do it. I'm so much more productive and full of life, its indescribable. I hope the same for you.

Welcome! I'm back to the beach after a few months away...I feel so bloated and sluggish when I'm not on plan. The first few days are the hardest!!

Welcome to a healthy lifestyle!

I started last week and apparently had the SB flu (which I had never heard of until I got on here), but with more beans in my diet I am feeling great and losing weight!

I started SB on I'm on Day 4. Day 2 was a killer for me I all thought about was carbs. Today I have to say was a good day. I meal plan the night before and I have not had any crazy cravings. Good Luck !
