Wink New to Board and SB

Hey all from a sunny Alabama. My name is Shelle...36/married. I have geared up to start Phase 1 of SB tomorrow. Eek! I have tried every know diet at least twice. I have come to realize that sugar is my main problem. I just can't moderate it, and I overindulge in the highly processed sugary foods. From the looks of SB, it may be just what I needed. I really want to get off of this crazy moody sugar high/low merry go round, and I would love to drop a few (okay, ALOT) of pounds in the process.

I am looking forward to this. I know the first two weeks are going to be rough. My favorite foods in the world is bread, pasta, and Mt. Dew. Pretty sad, huh!? I have to admit I am slowly losing all energy from such a bad eating life style.

I am going to look through the boards on here...looks like there are lots of great recipes and ideas.

Yes, welcome! Good luck, and I look forward to getting it know you.

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

Welcome, Shelle!

I think the majority of us here are recovering carb/sugar-aholics! I know I am! I didn't think I could live without bread and sugar, but I've been doing it since 4/28, and I've lost at least 46 pounds (maybe more!)! You can totally do this, especially with your great attitude!

The first three-five days of Phase 1 can be ****, because you are sugar detoxing, but we'll hold your hand and you'll make it through. : Find the PB cup recipe on the recipe forum...that can help.
