Smile SBD Success Stories

I am starting SBD this week and would love to read success stories just from the SBD people. Would it be possible to see what everyone has accomplished on this way of eating. Nothing is more motivating than people who have succeeded!!

Cannie, we have had many success stories here on The Beach. If you do a search in this forum, you will find several threads celebrating our victories.
Here is a link to one of them -

Tell about your SB success!

Cottagebythesea - we are very close in starting weight and height. How has your success been and how long have you been on this way of eating? I would like to lose about 40 lbs by the middle of November, which is about 25 weeks away, is that an atttainable goal?

S/C/G: Size 16 to 18/Size 6/I'm there

Height: 5"3" Age: 55

I stared 2 years ago in April...went from a size 18 to a size 6...
feel fantastic, don't feel deprived at all and really enjoying life now..
took a lot of years off my face too!!!
Maintaining now with an occasional "no-no" (but it has to be something really really worth it!)....
I think it's the perfect plan for me in preventing what I saw coming in the future if I didn't get a handle on it.

I was going to ask this same question!! Success stories always help me when I'm feeling down and not sure I want to keep going on with the diet. I read the ones on other websites, but sometimes you don't know if they're real or not. I also saw on some of the forums how they have success stories and things in the sticky note area. Glad you asked the question!!

Keep the success stories coming, it just makes it that much easier for us that are just starting out and needing a little encouragement.

FemmeCreole - it is great to see that it is a way of life and that it works as such!

Moncheree - All I can say is "WOW". I hope I can do as well. Good luck.

SBD Sass - tall girls rule...I wish I could say that. I'm not overweight, I'm undertall! You have done an amazing job. Wish me luck on my journey.

I just recently found another good Before Pic (ugh how horrible I looked!) The quality on both these pics is TERRIBLE, because I don't have a scanner, but in the current pic, I'm in the black shirt.

It's taken me long enough, but I've FINALLY discovered my true food issues and realized that I just can't consume white flour or sugar without going on a 3 week binge. I orignally thought deep-down that I was subconsciously sabotaging myself, but really, any time I had just a smidge of white flour or sugar, I'd go nuts, binging endlessly on every food in the house.

Started at 160 lbs, size XXXL Top and Size 16 pants.
Currently at 113 lbs, size XS Top and Size 2 pants.

Lets keep hearing all the great rewards for eating this way. I get on here everyday since I am still on phase I and still have craving issues. This helps keep me motivated. Thanks to all of you who tell your story.

I just started the South Beach this week. I am on day 3. I did this a couple of years ago and lost 35 pounds. It was amazing, but I didn't follow through with Phase 3. I will this time though.
