hey! i have been thinking of trying southbeach for a while now. i have been trying counting calories, as well as working out 5 days a week for several months now and i am not having any progress. i don't think that counting calories is working for me. i only need to lose about 15-20 pounds. is southbeach good for those who don't have a large amount of weight to lose?
another question - i am a widow raising 2 kids by myself and i don't get a lot of money, only social security. i can't really afford to buy the expensive foods and recipes.
so...is southbeach realistic for me or should i just stick to calorie counting? i would really love some advice and suggestions! thanks so much!!!
