Hi, all. I've been reading the boards for awhile, and finally got motivated enough to join in. Long story short...tonight I clean out the fridge...tomorrow I start Phase 1. I've never "been to the beach" before, so this will be a new experience for me. I'll have to wing it for a few days until my books from Amazon arrive (Tuesday, I hope!), so wish me luck and feel free to chime in with some tips and hints if you feel so inclined.
