South Beach Diet - Jumping into the beach

View Full Version : Jumping into the beach

I'm a 23 year old student (in fact, I'm working on a paper) who is starting the beach today. I'm joining with my roommate. I have 30 to lose, she has 20.

First day went well, I'm not especially hungry and I'm chugging water.

Welcome to the Beach! You'll find lots of support here.

:welcome3: redlight (and to your roommate too! :wave: )

When you need a break to procrastinate on your paper (I remember those days!), check out the Emergency Phase 1 post and other posts in the FAQ for more information. You'll also find great recipes in the recipe forum. I especially suggest the Taco Bake (everyone's favorite!), White chili, Almond Dijon Chicken, and the Peanut Butter Cup. :T

Glad to have you with us...and good for you on drinking water! :D

Come on in! The water's fine!

Thanks for the support. I will definitely look at the recipes. The "white chilli" sounds delicious.

Redlight - Welcome, I'm 24 so we're similar in age, SB is what finally let me take the weight off that I'd been trying to lose for years and years and years

You should make yourself a ticker - I don't know why but it's really fun to watch the marker move down.

I'm back on the beach. I first tried the SBD in April 2005. I had great success, and my eating has been the best of my life since.
Lately though, my cheating days have taken over and I need to get my eating back on track. My scale has been inching upward with all the cheating.

I want to get back to making my recipes and planning my meals. I know I can lose as much as I want, as long as I stay at it.
Right off I'm challenging myself to lose 10 pounds in five weeks!

Best wishes to you all and :welcome: to all of you newbies on the beach! You can do this!

I'm 28, working full time, and looking forward to meeting some new people here.

thanks RMT-so far so good. I weighed today, looks like four pounds gone already!

How is everyone else doing?
