Default I Am Starting South Beach Diet Today

I have the books and I know what to do. I'm starting today.

This is probably the easiest diet I have ever started. I hesitated because of the food restrictions, but in the end the freedom of not weighing, measuring (except for nuts and oils, etc), counting calories, points, etc. won out. Plus I cannot eat gluten, and this way of eating fits in perfectly.

Phase 1 here I come!

Welcome!

Be sure to post in both the daily chat and daily menu threads. They seem to help a lot of people remain accountable and on plan

Awesome! Good Luck! I began phase 1 two weeks ago and was perfect until the stupid girlscout cookies came in! I have had a few the last 2 nights but have been on track during the day.

The think that makes me so mad is that I am not even hungry and I think that I am just eating out of habit!!! I hate it!

But on a positive note I have gone to the gym the past 2 days and burned 400 calories which I don't think is too bad for not being there in over 2 years!

Going to the gym is great! For now I'm just walking.

I won't even look at the girl scout cookies!

You have the will power of steel if you can not look at the Girl Scout Cookies!

I love to walk but not by myself, however for some reason I can put on my iPod and go to town on the eliptical, probably becuse there are other people around me.

I also caved last night and ate some noodles I woke up feeling hungover from the sugar it was wierd. But thus far today I have been on target.

I just wish that there was a weight loss fairy LOL
