I'm trying to lose around 25-40 lbs by the end of December while doing the South Beach diet. I had a baby in May and was eating my typical phase 2 eating (I've been doing for a few years now) but I had gained a lot of weight by overdoing portions of the healthy grains and carbs and then of course, throughout the pregnancy, (along with some off-plan slipups) and then I started breastfeeding, which burns a lot of calories and had me craving bad carbs in the worst way! I don't know why but I theorize it's because carbs are quick energy and the body uses a lot of energy to make milk... anyhow.. anyhow I decided I needed a refresher Phase 1, but a member on the south beach diet board on this website gave me good advice that I should do phase 1.5 since I was breastfeeding, so I did. And guess what! I lost 11 lbs! I never lost that much doing phase 1 in the past, so I guess it's a combo of the phase 1.5 and the breast-feeding which burns calories. Now I'm gonna ease into phase 2. Just thought I'd share cause I'm really excited about it.
First Goal: 25-40lbs by December 25th
Second goal: To be decided when the first goal is obtained
