I am currently reading the SB diet book. This looks like a "doable" diet. There is a lot of very good info here! I am going to try SB soon as I finish the book and stock up the cupboard! :D

Good idea reading the book first! Welcome aboard!

Ditto! I'm a newbie.. I just finished up my first week with a loss of 8 pounds. I found reading the FAQ section and recipes very helpful - especially on my first trip for groceries. The other thing that has really helped me is visiting this site everyday and reading the success stories and the struggles that we all face!
Welcome Aboard!

Welcome, Rooschick! I am on day 4 of P1 and this forum is a huge inspiration. Good job on adding the exercise - it makes the time go by faster, I think.

Stick with it!

Day 6 and no cheats :) yay for us!

06-03-2005, 07:25 PM


I'm trying to exercise more too! Good luck!

Day 4 and no cheats yet. :D Yay. I am feeling tired today, I had enough sleep. Anyone else feel a little more tired than usual. :?: I was tired yesterday also. Hopefully this will pass soon. Today DD baked cookies and left them out on the counter to cool, I will NOT eat them. :smug:

Yup, while detoxing it's normal to not have as much energy...I actually took short naps that first week while my DD was napping, but after you get past this part, you'll be amazed at the extra energy you have compared to before starting this lifestyle.

Welcome to the beach! :D

Ugh, I hope it passes soon! I had a small cheat today, the smallest crumb off my DD's baking. It was good, but I am NOT having more. Actually I have not had any craving till today, I wanted potato chips & a chocolate bar. They were not available, so I didn't have em :D

I am looking forward to the detox stage to end. :dizzy:
