Default Hello, I'm new!

Hi there. I'm new to the site; a friend who I jog with told me about it, and she was right--it is way cool! Let's see. I started the South Beach Diet three weeks ago, so I'm into phase 2. Last year, about this time, I started SBD and lost 8 lbs in phase 1, felt a little better and quit. Throughout the past year, I've lost another 5 lbs or so not really following anything. Sooo...I decided to go back to what seemed to work. I've only lost 5 lbs, so far, but I'm hopeful. I'm wondering if anyone else seemed to have trouble getting the weight loss started even in phase 1.

About me...hmm, I have the world's most wonderful husband! We both work at a local college. I love to laugh (and love to make him laugh)! I'm working to lose weight left over from my own college experience and get to a healthier weight for my body.

Thanks for listening!

I'm wondering if anyone else seemed to have trouble getting the weight loss started even in phase 1.

Hi Katie --
This is my first go around with sbd. Today makes day 8 for me and I have only lost 4 lbs. I'm not sure if it's because I had some accidental slip-ups because I was new to the whole diet or because I am not trying to lose too much. I've heard it said that the more you have to lose the quicker it seems to go...I have no idea if there is any truth to that but it sort of makes sense I guess! Welcome to the beach!

Scout - I had a lot more to lose than you and I only lost 4 pounds in phase 1. I think part of it depends on how you were eating prior to staring South Beach. I was on a diuretic so I had no water weight left to lose.
