I don't think it's crazy! For me SB feels like healthy eating instead of a "diet". It sounds like you're starting with a good mindset "I feel like I will succeed . . .and it will work!"

Nellagirl and all the starters for monday, are you posting on this thread or the other phase I thread? I saw that Nellagirl posted here and on the other one so I didn't know where everyone was going to be posting on their journey starting tomorrow. I wish all of us luck and we need to keep each other motivated and we will succeed on this. There is so much support on these boards that its almost impossible to fall off the wagon. Monday here I come

Sluggo44, I just started a thread for all Phase I folks. It's best to keep our support and ideas in one spot and avoid duplication. See you there and to Phase I on The Beach.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
