Post New to 3FC, doing South Beach

Hello all! I am new to this forum and I hope I am posting where I should. There's so much to see and read, and I know I am in the right place to get support for my weight loss journey. I found 3FC when I was searching for some recipes for phase 1, to have more variety than eggs and chicken. So glad I did!

I've been following South Beach for about a month now, and I am down about 10 pounds (16 for the year). I have always struggled with weight, in fact, I can't remember a time when extra pounds weren't a problem for me. I am a junk food addict, but over the past month, SB has helped me break most of my horrible eating habits.

I think I have finally found a diet/lifestyle I can live with, and at the end of my road I hope to be down to about 140. But my mini-goal is to lose 50 pounds (I started 2013 at 241 and now I am about 225) and reach 191, because I plan to reward myself with a splurge on a super pair of cowboy boots!

Welcome! This is my 3rd year doing SB and I also found 3FC while searching for recipes. There is so much great information here and so many delicious recipes! I know I could not have kept with this plan if not for this site.

Congrats on your success so far and may you find more!!

Welcome SunshineMa! Love your screen name. Congratulations on your loss. You will be rocking those cowboy boots in no time I joined 3FC almost two years ago and could not be happier. The recipe forum is my friend! Especially since my eating was not only unhealthy, but routine before I found this site.

The chicks have been inspiring, supportive and friendly. I laugh because I enjoy hearing about their days and get excited to share my good news. To think most of us have never even met.

SB is a lifestyle that works for me. I have learned to accept daily fluctuations and keep my weight in a 4 pound range instead of concentrating on one number. My energy levels have dramatically increased as my size decreased.

Check in often as it really helps. Wishing you continued success!!!
