Talking New to the boards...

Hello! I started SB three weeks ago but am re-starting after slipping on vacation in Disneyland. This time I am ready for it!

My name is Shannon and I am 23 years old. I have been married for 7 months to my wonderful husband who has already lost 25 pounds since January by watching his portions. He is doing SB with me so the support is nice!

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers two years ago but didn't want to be counting points for the rest of my life. I have been struggling with the last 10-15 pounds, and am ready to get them off for good. After reading about South Beach I decided that this was something I could see myself sticking to long term. I just hope that I am able to get through Phase 1 this time! Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance! I have already gotten a lot of great recipes and ideas from here and can't wait to find more.

Welcome to The Beach. There's lots of support and enthusiasm here. Isn't it annoying how fast men can lose!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome to the beach. It is hard sometimes, but guaranteed you will lose weight faster than WW with less hunger. WW takes a lo-o-o-o-ng time. I didn't have the patience!!

you are only as free as you allow yourself to be...what chains you is yourself.

Welcome. It feels weird saying that because I feel so new here, too. Before SBD I considered programs like Jenny Craig. But I knew I would feel hungry all the time. Besides, it seems ridiculous to pay a lot for pre-packaged micro servings of food. Good luck!

Welcome to the Beach, Shannon!
