Hi everyone...I am new to this forum and new to South Beach. I have about 35 pounds to lose. I started last weekend and have already dropped 7 pounds. I have been exercising regularly about 5 days a week too. I am an Army wife and my husband is in Afghanistan for a year. I am staying home with my kids for the year...I have 5 of them. I love this site as it will serve as a great support!
