Hey all, I'm starting SB tomorrow for the 2nd time. I did it about 3 years ago and was very successful. Looking forward to hearing from anyone with advise or someone who like to be a "buddie"

Welcome Skinny Mom and I'm sure your South Beach habits of the past will really help you this time around.

I've only been on SB for a couple of months and I think my two major tips would be 1. meal preparation i.e. get the right type of food in the larder (or fridge :0)) and 2. filling in your weight history on a regular basis as it gives you a real buzz to watching the pounds drop.

Best of luck with your efforts and don't be shocked when those great comments about how you look start coming in from family and friends.

Cheers

This site is awesome and helped me learn about the glycemic index (helped me with my fast loss right off the bat). I used the list on this site the first few weeks on SB to really give me a good idea what the best foods were even out of the ones were permitted. Best wishes to you! Believe me, you found a great site and people!

Hi,
I started the SB diet on the 28th and I would gladly be your buddy. I want to lose between 50-60lbs.

I have been following the SB plan since mid October, and have begun Phase I again today, to refocus my efforts. You will love the support here - I suggest posting your weight frequently and following the plan 100% during those first two weeks - it really does help your body adjust to no sugar and carbs and your cravings will magically dissapear. Wishing you much success!

Have you lost weight on Atkins without exercise?
Just curious PerfectDove..... why would you revive a 4 year old post about Atkins and post a site that has nothing to do with Atkins? congrats on your weight loss and finding what works for you.

It never fails to amaze me.......
I bet that was interesting.. Rice and beans are a staple for me as well now, LOL . My choice though. I've learned a lot of new things in my 60's! This journey into getting healthy has been huge!

Calories?????
I started at about your weight 192. I'm female 65, have a smell frame and work at a desk all day but try to be fairly active when I'm not at work. I had to trim my calories down to averaging 1200 ...

trim down diet
Right, I wouldn't pay anyone. Find a plan that works and stick to it. There are lots of books at the library. Track your food on FS.
