Default Jumping into the beach

I'm a 23 year old student (in fact, I'm working on a paper) who is starting the beach today. I'm joining with my roommate. I have 30 to lose, she has 20.

First day went well, I'm not especially hungry and I'm chugging water.

redlight (and to your roommate too! )

When you need a break to procrastinate on your paper (I remember those days!), check out the Emergency Phase 1 post and other posts in the FAQ for more information. You'll also find great recipes in the recipe forum. I especially suggest the Taco Bake (everyone's favorite!), White chili, Almond Dijon Chicken, and the Peanut Butter Cup.

Glad to have you with us...and good for you on drinking water!

Thanks for the support. I will definitely look at the recipes. The "white chilli" sounds delicious.

Redlight - Welcome, I'm 24 so we're similar in age, SB is what finally let me take the weight off that I'd been trying to lose for years and years and years

You should make yourself a ticker - I don't know why but it's really fun to watch the marker move down.

I'm back on the beach. I first tried the SBD in April 2005. I had great success, and my eating has been the best of my life since.
Lately though, my cheating days have taken over and I need to get my eating back on track. My scale has been inching upward with all the cheating.

I want to get back to making my recipes and planning my meals. I know I can lose as much as I want, as long as I stay at it.
Right off I'm challenging myself to lose 10 pounds in five weeks!

Best wishes to you all and to all of you newbies on the beach! You can do this!

I'm 28, working full time, and looking forward to meeting some new people here.
