Default I'm new...sort of

Hey, I'm Stephanie and I've done South Beach a couple of times before and had success with it both times, but ultimately fell off the wagon both times as well. I'm back again and determined to reach my goal weight this time. And hey, you know what they say, third times a charm. I'm officially starting on Monday since I have to go grocery shopping this weekend. My starting weight is around 177 and my goal is 145. I know I can do it this time and hopefully having some support from fellow Beacher's like ya'll will help a lot. What else about me? Well, I'm a mommy to 2 wonderful boys; Lane who will be 3 in Feb. and Caleb who will turn 1 this month. And I'm a first semester nursing student working towards my RN degree. I'm sure with all that on my plate I'll be busy, busy, busy this year but I made a promise to myself that I would take time to do what I need to do for me this year, including losing these extra pounds that have been hanging around since the birth of my youngest. I look forward to meeting you all and if anybody has any tips before I go grocery shopping, please share.


Stephanie

Cool Welcome


I am definitely familiar with 'the third time is the charm,' lol. Welcome to the beach! I am sure that you will find lots of support here the trick is to reach out for help when you need it, offer help when its needed, and make sure you keeps your posts honest (keeps you accountable). Anyway it was nice to meet you, hope to see you around!

This is my first time on SB but my 9,000th diet probably! LOL...Welcome!

Hey my mom was on Weight Watchers about a gazillion times but last time she did it a few years back, she lost 30 pounds and is keeping it off too...so you only don't succeed when you stop trying, is my motto!

I like SB --- this morning (day 5 for me) was the first time I really had a craving, for pancakes, I made those Wacky Waffles from here, and I thought they were pretty good but my DH was like, those are scrambled eggs in a waffle suit! LOL...I'll kick his skinny butt for dissing my SB waffles!

Default Another newbie

I've been browsing long enough - time to join in the fun. This is my second time on SB. Was diagnosed with insulin resistance this past fall, so this time the weight must come off and stay off in order for me to stay healthy. I'm a novice to message boards because my old internet connection was hideously slow. But I've upgraded so there's no stopping me now!

I tried to find the generic bio format, but couldn't find it. Here goes...

Location: Kansas City area
Age: 41
Birthday: January 22
Occupation: Programmer (that's the easiest description)
Status: Single
Pets: 10 year old Sheltie named Lexi
Starting Weight: 274
Current Weight: 259
Mini-goal: 250 by Feb. 15
Why diets failed in the past: Couldn't stick with it
Why I will succeed this time: I've accepted the fact that I can't be perfect all the time. This time when I fall off the wagon, I won't get sucked under the wheels again. I know it has to be a lifestyle change, not just a diet.
Hobbies: Cooking (I love the recipes on this site!), Photography, Country Line Dancing (great exercise!)

Looking forward to chatting with you ladies. Speaking of line dancing, it's time to go "shake my groove thing".
