Default intro, cross-posted in intro section, starting today

I am starting phase 1 today. I choose this because I am a carboholic and need to change the way I eat as well as lose a bunch of weight.

I am currently 228 and would like to initially get down to 170 and eventually 150 or maybe 140. I lost 50 pounds on LA Weightloss but once I was done the bad habits returnes and then the weight.

I need to lose for my health and happiness. This time I am going to add in siginificant exercise with a goal of being able to consider myself a runner. Currently I am walking pretty consistently for 2 miles and am adding in some running, maybe about a mile or so. It is a hard road back, but I really want to succeed.

would love any words of advice for getting through the weekend and the next 2 weeks

Hello again, glad you found us!

WOA, the first few days can be tough, but not for everyone. Fortunately at the beginning is when you are very motivated. Just keep telling yourself you can do anything for 2 weeks. And after the first few days, you will start to feel really well and your cravings will start to subside and you will see it's so worth it!
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.

to The Beach!

I hope you have read the book so you understand the theory of this lifestyle change. Also, check out the stickies in the FAQ Section and you'll find the answers to many of your questions.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome to the beach and 3FC! This is a great place for support, encouragement, advice, and a good kick in the rear when needed. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Good luck on your Journey!

futurerunner! Read the book, stock up on SBD friendly Phase 1 foods, and plan ahead. That's the best advice I can give you, other than checking out our FAQ section and the great recipes in our Recipe section. Good luck!

I must tell you that while I've only been here since May - I've found this to be a warm, cozy place where when it's needed - you can get a hug or a kick in the pants-whichever is needed! This is a great place to be!
I am so glad you are here!
