...and this really IS small, but after my first week of South Beach, I'm down 6 pounds, which made my morning when I stepped on the scale today.

It is all the "small things" (and I would argue that getting through your first week of a new plan and losing 6 pounds is hardly "small"!!!) that add up, together, to really BIG things!

Well done, be proud!!!
