I have been watching this forum for a couple of weeks. I started SBD 3 weeks ago today and have lost 13 lbs. :cb: I love this way to eat. I love never being hungry and not always remembering to eat. I have been to other forums and I have learned much from them but felt I wasnt part of the click and I didnt know others very well. It seemed like the same topics were discussed over and over and if your werent on your computer all day you lost the topic you wanted to follow.:dizzy: I want to try to use this one more and get to know people on it. Thank you for being a part of the wonderful support system. Janet:grouphug:

Hey Janet!!!

I watched for about 3 weeks before posting and it's usually late by the time I get on the computer ... no time during the work day.

Congrats on the loss ... good work for three weeks!!!

I'm down 10 .... 10 to go and starting Phase II Sunday (yeah, I can eat yogurt and fruit!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Welcome Janet and Nikki..:balloons: :balloons: :balloons:

This is an awesome board...I'm pretty new here myself (about a week) and the tremendous support and motivation here has kept me going...

See ya on the beach..:cool:

You guys came to the right place! I am new, too, and had similar feelings about the other board. Great idea, but a bit overwhelming.

I am restarting Phase 1 after a bad month. I don't even have a specific weight loss goal for this phase, but just want to get back on the Beach! Waaaaa!:cry:

Good luck, and I'll see you guys on the Beach!

This must be the day for lurkers to come out-this is my 3rd posting today! I, too, enjoy the easier life style here. When I start back to work in a couple weeks (summer vacation is almost over for school personnel :( ) I'll be able to easily sneek a peek at this beach! Jann :sunny:

Hi Julbee:

Lucky you not being addicted to the scale ... I'm on it every other day :eek:

Also lucky you you're husband's along for the ride ... my boyfriend (who lives with me) has a fit every day saying I don't need to loose weight trying to get me to eat what he's eating:( (he needs to loose about 50 lbs himself)

Frannymae ... I ended up having a "bad month" too (from about the middle of June til the middle of July) and restarted two weeks ago ... down 10 lbs total but now I'm stalled :?: Onto phase II Sunday ... maybe I'll see a change then.

Thanks for the welcome all the ladies on the beach ;)
