Default Coming back to the Beach!

Hi all! I'm Amber, 31 year old "tired-of-being-fat" mom. I've packed on way too much weight over the past 7 years; it's time to take it off!

I've tried pretty much every diet and program out there. South Beach is the only thing that has ever worked for me. I am very nervous though; I've allowed myself to become a carb junkie, relying on sweets, breads & pastas to carry me through the day.

I'm planning on sticking with phase 1 for at least a month, possibly longer, since I have so much weight to lose.

I am so glad to have found this forum and am very much looking forward to the support and advice given.

Hi Amber, I'm new here also. Tomorrow I'm starting Phase 1. I'm also nervous because I'm a huge sugar addict. Good luck and hopefully we can keep in touch throughout this journey.

I'm also getting back on SBD, with calorie tracking as well (using myfitnesspal for that part). Sugar and carbs in general are my biggest issues. I'm excited to take control of my body.

Default back at it as well

It has been a very long time since i posted in this site....since 2011 and in that time I have gained a ton of weight. The only thing thay has worked is SB so I have decided to get serious about my health and get back on it. I need to refresh myself and reread the books but I am looking forward to supporting and finding support in this group.

Hello! I'm in a similar situation! I gained a lot of weight with my pregnancy with my 9 yo and have never been able to take it off. Now as she's getting older I feel like a horrible example, I feel like her and her friends are increasingly aware of my exaggerated waist line and I have no energy for my 2 yo. Something has to give and I don't want it to be my pants! ;-) Good luck!
