Hi everyone, I am Shawla and I started south beach yesterday, so far so good. :)
A little about me: I am 20 years old, stay-at-home mom to a 8 month old son, and married for 2 years. I reside in Atlanta Georgia. I currently weigh 173 pounds and i am wanting to lose atleast 40+ pounds. I did south beach about 2 months ago for about 4 days and quit, but i'm sure with support and great friendships here I will succeed this time! ;)

Welcome Shawla!! I love this place and I really think you will too. There is such great support here and if someone slides, there's others to help motivate. The greatest thing about SBD (to me) is that even if I mess up, I think about how much better I feel being on the program, and I want to be a part of it. Good luck to you!

thanks everyone today is day 4, everything is going good and i'm still on track, my cravings have virtually disappeared! I can't wait until my 2 weeks are over so that i can add more variety to my breakfast. I have been eating egg and turkey bacon most mornings. Anyway, i wanted to thank you guys for the thanks.

BTW my son is Carson Matthew and my husband is Matthew. lol
