Default Hey. I'm new.

Hello, I'm new.. 16, 5"3, 130lbs. I know I'm not underweight, but I'm seriously unhappy with my body, as I have a very small frame and so I'm not comfortable. I'd like to be 110 for roundabout July time, and maintain that weight. I'm lacking in motivation.. I did the South Beach before but gave up and gained back the weight. I really want to do this; I have the will power, I just need the drive. How do I get this? I plan on starting Phase 1 tomorrow.

Thankyou. :] xx

Welcome to the Beach!
Make sure you eat enough, hon. How about a little protein with those carrot sticks.

Welcome to The Beach.
Hey! Eat protein. By the way, carrots are a until Phase II. Better read the Phase I food list in the FAQ section. You must eat enough of the right foods to lose weight on this plan.

Hello to Victoria and OhLaLa!

Do read the book please...it really is important to know why you are eating the way you are on SBD. Also check out the FAQ...Dr. A updates the "Food to Avoid/Enjoy" lists frequently, and the latest is all in that post in the FAQ.

OhLaLa, remember that feeling better about your body is not just about weightloss, but emotional and mental change, too. There are some great books out there that may start you on that journey, and journaling can help too. You might also find that exercise helps tone you and make you feel good about yourself, too. Check out the Exercise! and Ladies Who Lift forums for more info. But make sure you check with your doctor about your weightloss and any exercise you plan to do, okay? You're still growing (I gained an inch when I was 18!) and want to make sure you are doing everything safely.
