Smile Hi...new to South Beach and 3FC's

Hi everyone!

My husband and I started South Beach today and we did try it over the summer with success. Unfortunately I wasn't too committed to it, but now I feel totally different. I am ready to get myself under control and ENJOY life instead of feeling miserable about my weight. I lost 120 pounds 2 years ago, but I didnt do it very smart or healthy. I have sadly gained about half of it back now, but I want to put a halt to the gaining and get back into a healthier lifestyle. I have never posted before, but I really like the idea of having buddies to share struggles and successes with. I hope to visit with any of you!

Thank you all so much for the replies and support...it's so great!! I just weighed in...and not pretty...272!!! My goal for the month of September is 10 pounds. Does that sound like a reasonable goal? Thanks again. Good luck to all of you!

Welcome to another "Sisterhood", yaya. 10 pounds can be done, especially if you are really committed to Phase I. I'll add your goal to the September challenge.

Welcome, Yaya!

I think you'll love it here...definitely a great place for support and understanding.

If you ensure that you do Phase 1 without any cheats at all, I think 10 pounds is definitely a reasonable goal for your first month.

Glad you're here!

Welcome to the Beach Yaya. I love SBD, it is the easiest program I have ever been on. And yes I have had slips but it is also the easiest program to resume on. I think you will enjoy sharing the beach with us.
