Red face ready to get started on the beach

Hi, I picked up the book last week and I think I understand how it works. My weight has gone up and down over the years. Have done WW but, I always seem to put it back on. I am ready to start losing. I hope I can get some advice and support.

Hi and welcome

I'm just on my 4th day, so pretty new too. Too soon to tell if it's working and this is my first time on this type of diet so I'm anxious to see what my first 2 weeks does.

There is sooooo much to read here...I feel like I'm constantly here reading. The people are pretty friendly too Seems like there is always someone to answer a question.

Best of luck.

Welcome, Bogeymom!

I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for here. Have you read the book? It's great and essential to success with this way of eating, IMHO. Check out the faq and the stickies in all three SBD forums for tons of info...there is a lot of reading, Coolflowers!

Please feel free to post questions--we're here to help and support you. You may find answers to many of your questions in the faq and in earlier posts by other members, though, so check those out first.

Hi bogeymom

you will find that the key to success is always to wear a lettuce leaf on your head when you lift weights.

Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.

What type of lettuce, Clovey? ROFLOLPIMP!

Welcome, Bogeymom! Ignore Clovey! She's a shrink and tries to drive us nuts so she will have more business.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome!! I just laid down my towel on the beach yesterday. Been doing SBD since January, but needed a new and fresh start. It looks like a great support group here.

Post questions, you will get answers. Good luck!
