Smile New here; just want to introduce myself

Hi All,
I am a 58 year old mom of 4; grandmother of 10 from Niagara Falls, NY.
Like so many others I have been yo-yoing for years.
I was on WW about 17 years ago and even made my goal but never followed through on maintenance. For one reason or another have gained all that back plus about 30 pounds.
About 2 years ago I tried WW again on their new flex plan then I changed to the core plan. Lost maybe 10 lbs and then gave up (got tired of counting; weighing and writing down every last morsel that went into my mouth)
Saw an ad for South Beach and thought I would try it. Glad I did. Already have lost 11 lbs and quite a few inches and its only been about 9 weeks. It has been the best decision that I have ever made to join
SBD.

Hi there! I'm new here too today. I look forward to getting to know you .

Was writing everything down part of the WW plan? That would drive me crazy after a week or two. I know it can be helpful but I'd have to tie the notebook around my nexk to remember to write stuff down .

Have an awesome day!!

Hi Sweet Tea,
In order to keep track of what I was eating and making sure I got everything in for the day I had to write everything down. On the flex plan I had to write everything down so I could keep track of the points that I was using for the day. Thats why I love SBD. As long as I am eating OP foods and not going overboard on portions I am doing fine.
Have an awesome day too!

Nebrons, welcome, and congratulations on your success on SBD! Sounds like you have a handle on the program, but you might find the information in the FAQ helpful. You may also enjoy the recipes in the recipe forum and feel free to join us on the daily chat (it's the thread with the name of the day in the title). Looking forward to hearing of future success from you!

Sweet Tea, I don't think I've had the chance to welcome you either! Love your avatar and your sig is very inspirational! Great attitude...I'm sure it'll take you far!

Welcome, Nebrons and Sweet Tea! You will love this plan. Be sure to read the FAQ Section thoroughly noting that the Food List is revised and not the same as the one in the book. Please feel free to join the Daily Chat and also start threads on any topic that's appropriate.

Thank you all for welcoming me to the group. I've been rather shy most of my life but getting older kind of frees me from the same constraints that I had when I was younger. As they say: I'm not getting older, I am getting better and following SBD will make that more true than ever. I'll be healthier and hope to be around a lot longer to enjoy all my grandkids.
Thanks again ladies; together we can all make it to our goals.
