I'm not sure if this is the right place to do this or not, but, here it goes
I'm 39 years old, a mom to two great kids and wife to a great guy. I have been fat for most of my life. I've dieted in the past, getting down to a reasonable weight, but have always gained every pound back and then some. I made a promise to myself last year that by the time I turned 40 I was going to be healthy and at a reasonable weight... and do it by changing my eating habits for life.
I am in my second week of SBD Phase I. I've lost an unbelievable 16 lbs, 13 in the first week. I'm not so sure this is OK, or normal, but I feel like it's OK, because I'm eating so much better than I had been. I'm not starving myself, and I've followed the plan almost to the letter.
Even though I have the SBD book, the food guide and the quick and easy cookbook, I have many questions and think this will be a great place to talk with others about SBD.
I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!
