Hi everybody, my name is Drea and I am from the Detroit area. I started the SBD on Monday and am excited and hopeful. I have been battling a wqeight problem since I was pre-teen. I weighed over 320lbs. in 2000, but dropped it down to about 230 lbs. between 2000-2002, now i have started to creep back up. I am currently 246 lbs. and want to get down to around 160. I am 5'9" and built to be a broad girl, but broad and chubby are not good. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing ideas! any suggestions are greatly appreciated and as I am new to this, I don't know when the chats are or anything, so please let me know!
much thanks!

We have a daily thread/chat that starts early in the morning and people pop in throughout the day. Right now we have several who are on day 3 of phase 1 just as you are. We've all been there!!
