South Beach Diet - Another new Chick

View Full Version : Another new Chick

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I have been lurking here for several weeks and at 3fatchicks
for a year. I've really enjoyed the encouragement I've read here.

I have been on SBD for almost 4 weeks. I struggled with weight watchers for years with no progress. I was frustrated with food dominating my life. I happened across the Chicks on the beach forum and that's what actually got me started. I lost 9 lbs the first 2 weeks and felt great. But I guess I got a bit over confident and I've slipped a little.

I love the information, recipes and inspiration that you all have shared so freely. Thanks! Hope I can get to the point that I can return the favor.:)

Jule, so glad you found us! I am new myself, and have only been posting about a week. But I LOVE it here. I already feel right at home, which I have never done on any other message board!

I was trying to explain SBD to someone today and it occured to me that is was designed to ease people into healthier eating habits. You're all probably going "Duh" at this point! If you work the program you will not only lose weight but gain an understanding of healthy nutrition. Wow-a lightbulb moment here in Ohio! :lol:

Welcome to the Beach!

WELCOME JULE!! I slip sometimes too, but the beauty of this is that you can really shrug it off and keep on going!!! It is very healthy, and I find that even when i "cheat" now, it is in smaller amounts, and sometimes with healthier choices!
