South Beach Diet - I'm starting Phase I tomorrow

View Full Version : I'm starting Phase I tomorrow

Hi, I am going to start Phase I tomorrow and wanted to introduce myself because I intend to use this community for a lot of support. I have been looking around at all of the boards and everyone seems so kind and supportive. I am at my heaviest weight ever (aside from pregnancy) and I am completely miserable. I don't have any energy, my clothes don't fit and I'm just plain sad. I've tried numerous other diets over the years and the yo-yoing has really taken a toll. I'm determined to make this a lifestyle and be free of the diet mentality for good. I look forward to getting to know the others here. Wish me luck!

Hi Change :welcome::welcome: The chicks on the beach are wonderful. There support has helped me achieve my goals. Ultimately each of us is in control of our own destiny. Somedays we make great choices and other days not so much. For me, it has been easier to forgive myself and get back on track instead of spiraling out of control. Good luck and looking forward to getting to know you.

Thanks Change, my weight fluctuates during the month between my low number and goal. I feel good maintaining. Don't get me wrong I like the lower number. I know each day I may weigh a little more or less depending on food choices, water retention exercise etc. So whatever I weigh on Sunday is the number I base my week from. So far so good :) thanks for the compliment.

Hi Change is good
I could have written your post. I am feeling exactly the same way. Today was my first day on Phase 1 and I feel a little crabby and I have a headache. After the holiday bender, I think I am detoxing. Good Luck to you.
