Welcome to the Beach, Selena! Make sure you check out the updated food lists in the FAQ forum. The lists are more current than the book.

Hi Selena,
I'm sure you will do just great with your weigh in. When I first saw your post I was thinking you were starting tomorrow, which is going to be my start day. I too am ready to lose the weight. I need to get rid of my cravings. Let us know how you did.

Selena, welcome! Exercise is crucial to success on any weight-loss plan (at least I think so!), so I'm glad to hear that you are going to Curves! I hope that you are enjoying this WOE...I love it. :D

I can definitely tell you that 100 pounds is possible! ;) Welcome! :wave:
