I've looked around in here before and there used to be a pretty regular "Starting/Restarting P1" thread hanging out... perhaps that tradition was discontinued.... so I will be presumptuous and take a whole thread for myself
So, I've finally decided to start P1 tomorrow. I read the SB book back in April, but I didn't start the plan because I figured moving, final exams, graduation, starting a new job, etc was a bad time to make a major lifestyle renovation -- well, maybe not a bad
time, but a time I didn't think I could stick with anything that would make life more complicated. But here I am now, comfortably in my grad program.... ready to make a serious go at this weight loss thing. I've done WW and tried calorie counting, but I get stuck in binge cycles... triggered by carbs... Or I end up eating my 1500 calories of chocolate and feeling guilty/not eating for the rest of the day. So I need to take control -- be smart and simply remove my triggers. Which SB will help me do.
As soon as I finish this post I'm off to the grocery store. I've been stalling going grocery shopping to make sure I have as little as possible in the cupboards when I start P1. I've been sifting through all the fabulous info on these boards about recipes and updated foods lists and all sorts of stuff. (Ruth -- you keep your little domain SO organized!) I've made myself a list..... checked it twice.... and have nothing non-P1 on it! I start first thing in the morning -- I'm starting on the weekend so that if I feel crappy the first few days of "withdrawl" I can curl up on the couch and read and not interact with anyone
Okay ladies (er, any gents around this part of the boards? I'm usually around the 20-somethings where men are scarce
).... Off to the grocery store! I hope to get to know y'all over the course of this journey....
See you tomorrow, on the Beach!
