Default What has your success been on this diet?

Hello Just looking to see if any of you would like to share your success stories with me? As my earlier post says, I barely started this diet on Monday and would love to see the success it brings. Thank you!!

I am steadily losing 2-3 pounds a week. I weigh in every Monday which forces me to behave on the weekends. I also exercise 5-6 times a week. My husband has lost 20 pounds which makes me scowl at him...hisssss..no seriously, seeing that scale go down every week is awesome! Keep with it!

Well my success is still on going. But, I started this diet the end of April while undergoing fertility treatments. I got pregnant that month. I miscarried, but that's okay.
I went from 240 to 220 (in 4 weeks), bounced back up to 225 while I was pregnant, then you see where I'm at now, about a month after miscarrying. My skin is clearer, I have more energy, I love eating my healthy foods. Its just a way of life to dive into and just learn to love!
Determined to make 2011 my best year in a LONG time!!

I want to feel like .

im in week 3 of ph2, and LOVING IT. granted the first 2 weeks were hard but once you make the commitment it feels great! i have had a few "setbacks" on the weekends but all in all i have lost 8lbs as of 8/3/2010 and looking forward to keeping it going at 2lbs lost a week!

i suggest weighing yourself 4-5 days after you begin a clean ph1...the motivation from seeing myself loose 4 pounds in that amount of time really kicked it into high gear for me! i still choose to eat ph1 most of the time.

I've lost 34 lbs. since March using SB principles for my eating and WW for my portion control. I find that it works best for me that way and to combine it with exercise. I exercise 6 days a week and combine both cardio and strength training.

100 lbs. down plus a carrot for every 5 more

My scale dropped has dropped tremendously I have lost 14lbs so far and 8/8 will be two week date with Phase 1. But for me I wasnt healthy at all so doing everything at once has made my body just shed weight. All I ate before was carbs and the bad kind sugar, refined wheat, etc., not one single veggie, I hated water (all I drink now), plus exercise (never did it before).

I am definitely afraid to move to Phase 2.

I lost 80 lbs on SBD and have maintained 2+ years using Phase 1.5 - 2 with calorie counting as a fail safe. I did move out of Phase 1 on schedule but have never eaten more than 3-4 servings of grains per week. Luckily I can eat just about as much fresh fruit as I want.
Maintaining 57 lb loss since 2008, working off regain to a sensible maintenance level.

I lost a total of 20lbs so far. But for me that's big. I lost 8lbs in phase 1 and the rest in phase 2. Technically I'm in phase 2 but I've been eating as if I'm in phase 3 so I've held steady at the 20lb loss. Which is also big. I've never been able to maintain weightloss before this diet. Learning the principles and the effect the food has on me through SB has helped me lose and keep it off. I do want to lose more...but for now, I think I've had a huge success!
Back on SB!

I officially started South Beach in mid-April. I weighed myself yesterday and I'm down a total of 61 pounds. To be fair, though, 13 of those were lost in the 2 months before I started South Beach...so we'll call it a total of 48 pounds gone b/c of South Beach. I love love LOVE it. It's so easy to stay faithful to the diet and I don't really feel deprived.

1st goal - 10% of body weight lost - MET 06/21/10
2nd goal - 100 lbs lost
3rd goal - 180 lbs!!!

First 10 pounds (185.6 lbs)= 8-26-10
20 pounds GONE (175.6 lbs)=
30 pounds GONE (165.6 lbs)=
40 pounds GONE (155.6 lbs)=
50 pounds GONE!!! (145.6 lbs)=
GOAL (140 lbs)=
