Default Good news!

Hi, everyone!! I just wanted to share that I am a little over one week into phase 1, and have lost 5 pounds!!! This is HUGE for me, as I always have always lost weight at a snail's pace. For example, before starting SBD, I had been on a 1200 calorie a day diet for the last two months, writing down everything I ate and measuring every potion, and had lost less than THREE pounds. Talk about discouraging. However, the results I am seeing so far on this diet seem to suggest that insulin-resistance (or whatever its called in the book) is my problem! Just wanted to share...hopefully I can keep this up.

Hey Mary....found you on this new site! Glad you asked...and glad you like it! Congratulations on your progress!!! I can so relate as about 2/3 through Phase 1 I'd lost 6lbs and that after struggling with other programs.
I'm to weigh in tomorrow so hope I have MORE progress. Wore some jeans yesterday that 3 weeks ago were bordering on being too tight to get zipped and they were "loose"!!
