Default I'm New!

Good Morning Everyone! I have been reading this site for a while and finally decided to join. I am on the South Beach Diet for the 2nd time, and I started this one on 12/29/04, and the weight was 277.5! I found this site to be helpful in seeing that I am not alone in trying to get the weight off. My first goal was just to make this eating change last for 1 month! Tomorrow is the day! So far, I have losted 14.5 pounds!! Yippee! So, I am rewarding myself and helping myself by joining here! Looking forward to posting my success! Have a Great Day! "The Dutchess"

Thanks Bamiegurl! I have done a lot of reading already! It was always good to come back to read all the postings, and see what everyone else is going through! It has helped so far! It has gotten me to my first month! I don't think I ever lasted longer than 3 weeks before! Why...I don't know! That's why I made it to the 1st month! Actually making it a month was my first goal!

Welcome to the beach! I am also new, in my third day of phase 1. Lots of good info on this board. Get the book though because I have learned so much and I only started reading it yesterday.

Good Morning! A whole month!!! Reached my first goal, and have lost a total of 14 pounds! Now I'm trying to figure out what my next goal should be! Yesterday I think was my worst day ever. I ate right and worked out, but was thinking junk food all day! Yikes! I made it through the day without cheating. Maybe that a good sign!
I'm thinking maybe going for a 8 pounds for February!

Thanks for all the well wishing!
Debbi

Well it shows now. Better add it to your profile so you don't need to copy it into every post. See User CP and Edit Signature.
14 pounds is great and it's nice to see someone looking ahead to February.
