Umm, I looked for a thread to throw an introduction into but I might be overlooking it.. If so, very sorry! Anyway--
My name is Li and I am looking to join South Beach! I plan on starting this weekend and I want to lose 15 pounds by June 1st (graduation!). I have tried SB several times before, one time I made it a whole 6 days (heh, I know.. no willpower!). This time, I want to look good for myself and my graduation plans.
I am 24 and an English Literature and Japanese Language major with a minor in High School education. I have been overweight my whole life, well, since 6th grade anyway, but it really got bad about 2 years ago, when I moved back from Japan and started eating out all the time at fast food joints. I gained 30 pounds and I really feel lousy. I keep saying I'm going to get on track but them "I am always so busy" or "I'll start tomorrow" or "Hey, I wonder if these $50 pills work?!" always gets in the way. So, this weekend, I plan on doing it for real.
I found this site by accident and I love it! I hope I can get to know all of you and make some friends. Take care!
