Real Name: Angela

Starting weight/current/goal - 224.6 / 215.8 / 134

Location: New Jersey USA

Age: 38

Marital Status: Happily married!!

Kids: Two daughters: 21 year old Briar and 6 year old Marissa.

Pets: Do fish count?

Work: FAA Administrative Project Support

Plan: South Beach. I did Weight Watchers and lost 50 pounds before getting preggers with my 6 year old. After she was born I went back to WW and didn't lose an ounce. I then tried South Beach and lost a little weigh but the weight loss was so slow that I gave up. Nearly five years after Marissa was born, at the same weight I was before WW, I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem. I am now taking natural supplements that have it under control and decided that I enjoyed the SB diet so much more than WW that I'm going to give it a go again.

Dangerous Foods: pasta, bread, chocolate, ice cream and anything Dad makes!

Hobbies: reading, writing and kingdoms of camelot

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: I felt SOOO much better when I weighed 50 pounds lighter than I do now. I want to get back there and then keep losing so I can lead a long healthy life for my family and myself.

Problem In Weight Loss: Laziness!! Why call it anything else?

User Name: Eydawn. Anagram of my real name- W E N D Y A = E Y D A W N (came up with it when I was twelve, been my forum handle in various places for forever!)

Starting weight/current/goal - 193 (gah!)/ 184 / 170 (ish)

Location: Smoky Colorado! Safe so far, many friends and family not as lucky.

Age: 25

Marital Status: Happily married (the law says 3 years, we say 6)

Kids: None yet. Gotta finish nursing school first!

Pets: One loveably goofy, dumb, supergay golden retriever. (No seriously. He bats for the other team. Lol...)

Work: CNA on a hospital floor, RN student (done in December!)

Plan: South Beach with my own modifications...

Favorite diet cheat: White wine, chocolate, and vinegar/sea salt potato chips...

Hobbies: Search and rescue, choral singing, sleep (pretty much a time restricted hobby at this point!)

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: Uncomfortable in my own skin. Harder to move quickly when I'm heavy, making me less useful at work and when I'm out with SAR. Don't like the way I look and feel when I'm at my high weight. Want to get to a healthy base again before considering pregnancy. Let's just say nursing school hasn't been kind to the pants size...

Starting weight/current/goal - 198/167/158

Location: Pennsylvania

Age: 52

Marital Status: Married 23 years to a guy who is doing SB with me

Kids: One son, 22

Pets: Mini-schnauzer named Nick and a kitten named Tupper

Work: I work as an Advertising Clerk for a small town newspaper

Plan: South Beach. Read the book from the library and then purchased it along with the South Beach diet cookbook.

Favorite diet cheat: I've been on this since mid-May and haven't really cheated. Way too scared to. I do feel guilty when I have a Diet Coke.

Hobbies: Reading and walking my dog in the summer. I love the quiet early morning walks.

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: Arthritis in my knee. Really trying to delay a knee replacement. I've been on countless diets, but this one seems to make sense. I rarely feel deprived (except for the first two weeks) and I love that after the first 2 weeks my sugar cravings pretty much vanished. I don't think I would be ding so well if my husband wasn't doing this right along side me. Took him getting a huge belly for him to get on board with the lifestyle change.

Goal reached and maintaining since December, 2012.

I am new here and I started the South Beach diet two days ago. I have read the book and will go through the Recipe book pretty soon. I am very excited and very well motivated. I will probably need your support in the next few days as I am a fruit lover and they are not permitted in Phase 1. I am also the only person on a diet at home so I will have to cook two different meals each time. Might be hard but I enjoy most of the food that is allowed so I am happy and motivated in trying the different recipes available on this website.

Location: Quebec, Canada

Age: 37

Marital Status: Married for almost 10 years

Kids: A son (14) and a daughter (8)

Pets: A chocolate Labrador named Miley - She's still a baby

Work: I work for the Canadian Federal Government as an IT Specialist. I'm not a little geek but I LOVE my job.

Plan: South Beach. It's the first time I try a diet and South Beach was the most interesting one for me. It allows a lot of food that I like so it shouldn't be too hard to follow. Except for the fruit part, I am a fruit lover so Phase 1 will be hard for me but I am very well motivated!

Favorite diet cheat: I started this diet only two days ago so I haven't cheated yet and I do not have any intentions too but... if it happens, it will probably be either a fruit, pizza or Jalapeno chips

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: I do it for myself, to feel good with my body, to regain energy and to be proud of what I look like. I want to stay healthy and teach good food habits to my kids...

Location: Wisconsin

Age: 34

Marital Status: Married

Kids: DD1 5. DD2 4, DD3 11mths

Pets: none

Work: Operations manager for a non-profit social services agency

History: Been overweight my entire life. When I was in my early 20s I started doing martial arts and jogging and started to get pretty fit. However, since then I have gotten married and all of the weight found its way back after 3 close pregnancies.

Plan: South Beach

Challenges: I have issues with compulsive eating related to my OCD.

Favorite diet cheat: Chocolate

Hobbies: Spending time with my husband and girls

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: A week after DD3 was born I ended up back in the hospital with blood clots in both lungs. That close brush with possible death scared the **** out of me. I made a promise to myself to get healthier to reduce the chances of it happening again so that I can live to see my girls grow up.

The same thing happened to me...losing 15 lbs and putting it back on. Except this happened to me a few months ago!


User Name: slicedbreadbox/real name: elizabeth

Starting weight/current/goal - 165/163/136 (my ultimate goal weight would be 115-120lbs)

Location: Southern California

Age: 23. 24 next month

Marital Status: in a serious relationship. it's been 4 years!

Kids: none. my pets are my kids

Pets: two little chihuahua mixes who are rescues. the loves of my life.

Work: graduate student but that will be changing in a couple of months

Plan: South Beach. I've done Phase 1 before, and maintained it but then I did some sort of detox/fasting program that my parents put me on. Needless to say, I lost about 10 more pounds but it was because I couldn't eat anything! So after eating like crazy after not being able to eat, I've put the weight back on. I'm going to do it right this time though.

Favorite diet cheat: carbs. any and all of them. sugar somewhat too but mostly carbs.

Hobbies: traveling, music, going to concerts, spending time with my bf and my dogs

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: mostly vanity. I'm tired of my wobbly bits. Plus it feels good to know that I'll be healthier, and living a healthier lifestyle.
