New to SB. I have successfully completed the second day and begin number three tomorrow. Besides the withdrawal headache yesterday - all is going well. I am always a little worried for weekends, but I have a plan and think it will be okay. I am optimistic and motivated...and really really really really want to adopt a way of life that works for me and is successful! So far, I can see this working for me! Woo hoo!
My quick dieting history: I started Atkins in '04 and did it for a few months...lost about 20-30 pounds and gained super high blood pressure so I stopped (I'm not going to place total blame on the diet though - one of my favorite lunches was two double cheeseburgers from Micky D's sans bun and ketchup
). However, it did turn me on to Diet Soda, so that was a plus. In '05 I started the Six Week Body Makeover and that lasted a few days and THEN in early '06 I tried SWBMO again and had a ton of success, I was really motivated and "in the zone" and lost about 40 pounds in 4 months! Awesome! And then I did that thing that so many of us do when we lose weight...I got comfortable. I like how I looked (don't get me wrong I still had 40 more to go, but was down probably 75 from my very heaviest), I was more confident, I was dating more and going out to dinner more and I wasn't really gaining weight which gave me this "free pass" and false confidence...then a pound here and there and now I'm up ~ 20 from my lowest adult weight and I want to get back there and beyond! I still have much love for 6WBMO but I can't wrap my head around it right now and I think that SB fits my lifestyle better.
Blah blah blah. I like to talk.
Okay - HI again! Look forward to getting to know peeps and working through this together!
