Default I CAN DO THIS (restarting the SBD)

I feel like I have made a post like this before. I did the SBD about 5 years ago, and lost about 40 lbs. I felt great. I then had a child, and then another, and finally one more. (yes, I had three children in just over 3 years). With each child, I continued to gain weight and then not lose it. The weight significantly added on each time. I have been trying to diet for about 3 months now with some small success but then I revert back to my old ways. I now have about 70 lbs to lose (I have managed to keep off about 15 lbs). The SBD is a great WOE for me b/c I never felt deprived on it. I am planning on doing some shopping and some menu planning tonight and then jumping on the bandwagon tomorrow. Hopefully, if I make daily stops on here, I will be able to be accountable for my actions.

I look forward to chatting with everyone and share successes.

My mom gained her weight that way and still hasn't lost it, 30 years later. It caused a lot of trouble for all of us and major health issues for her, so I'm VERY glad to hear that you're being so proactive!

Think about why you've found it hard to stay on track in the past and then plan strategies for how you can avoid those problems/situations in the future. It's worth the time and effort to plan for success!

Hi Kris and

I am fairly new here so it's nice to meet you. I lost most of my weight on my own, way too slowly. I am really committed here. I've lost 20# in 10 weeks and feel great.

I feel like with the support here, I can reach my goals and finally find success in maintaining my new WOL.

It seems there are quite a few ladies just starting P1 who are posting on the P1 thread. You already know you can do this!!

Best Wishes!
Debbie R

Hi Kris!

You've definitely come to the right place for positive support and accountability.

Welcome back and congrats on the 3 boys! You've been busy.
