Default new to SBD

Hi everyone, I am Shawla and I started south beach yesterday, so far so good.
A little about me: I am 20 years old, stay-at-home mom to a 8 month old son, and married for 2 years. I reside in Atlanta Georgia. I currently weigh 173 pounds and i am wanting to lose atleast 40+ pounds. I did south beach about 2 months ago for about 4 days and quit, but i'm sure with support and great friendships here I will succeed this time!

Hey Chick and welcome to the beach! What a cute lil baby. It's amaging how something so cute can bring something so aweful! (Those extra pounds!) teehee I'm back on the beach today after being abroad for a few months! haha Good luck!

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.

Welcome Shawla!! I love this place and I really think you will too. There is such great support here and if someone slides, there's others to help motivate. The greatest thing about SBD (to me) is that even if I mess up, I think about how much better I feel being on the program, and I want to be a part of it. Good luck to you!
