Default Hi - doing SB for the first time

Hi everyone
I just started SB for the first time yesterday and as I have no experience with this diet I thought it would be helpful to be able to chat to others here who have.
One of the reasons I am trying SB is because I suffer from PCOS and losing weight is always a big struggle for me. Even when I eat somewhat healthily and watch my portions I still put on weight. I did manage to lose 20 pounds 2 years ago with the help of calorie counting and exercise... but all of it piled on over the last year when I stopped counting and exercising.
I am hoping that SB might be a way for me to not only lose weight but also maintain my weight once I am at a happy weight. I have around 60 pounds to lose.. so a long way to go.

My first day yesterday went ok but I did get a headache in the afternoon and was pretty tired in the evening and took a nap (but this might also be due to getting my period this week.. which causes similar symptoms).
I did weigh myself this morning and am happy to say I'm down a pound already and hope this will continue in the next 2 weeks.

Nina

Hi Nina and welcome. I too suffered headaches in the beginning as my body got used to "sugar withdrawl." SB really does work and is (at least for me) easy because I am not counting calories or measuring everything I eat. Check the boards for recipes and such. The chicks here are really great and many are dealing with medical challenges to. Good luck

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Second day was though too - bad headache in the evening. But I've lost another pound ... so I'm very motivated.
