Hi all, I'm new to the forum but not to South Beach. I've done phase 1 in the past to lose a few pounds but never stuck with it. I'm determined this time to get down to 130 pounds, I want to feel good in a swimsuit for once!
Some about me, I'm 21, 5'4" and 215 pounds- pretty much the highest I've ever been. Being over 200 has been mortifying for me. I see myself in my head as much skinnier then I am. I have a stick thin sister (5'6" and 110lbs) and I'm the only over weight one in my family- I've always gotten grief from my family for it (not the outright saying-I'm-fat kinda grief, more of the underlying guilt type)
I'm getting married December 2nd (although I should have started losing the weight before this... :/)! My fiancee and I are doing SB together, along with working out together. We've done average so far (no cheating) but have stayed steady with working out every day!
I feel like we're struggling with eating enough food. We're on day 3 of phase 1 and I've felt like I'm soooo hungry most of every day. I've added snacks but still feel lacking. I'm also very picky (I eat like a 5 year old) so breakfast has been very hard for me. I'm used to eating a bagel or muffin but now am stuck with eggs (gross for me) and so I can't stand eating much in the morning.
I would love to post before, during, and after photos for motivation, and it's definitely great finding a forum with support! I look forward to reading other people's stories and to gaining more motivation (as if a wedding dress/photos arent enough!!!!)
