Goal Weight:150.0 lb
following: The South Beach Diet
performance: Steady

I am 36. Have struggled with weight gain since birth (at least it feels that way !) I chose to start the South Beach Diet , and did so as of January 2, 2007.(starting weight 246lbs) I also decided to begin a exercise program in conjunction with the diet. I started walking for 30 min at lunch time at least 3 days a week and did either at least 30 min on eliptical or a "firm" workout tape each night. Now I am up to about 60 min workouts everyday and enjoy jogging (3mi) or biking (5mi). Phase I of SBD was difficult at first, but after getting all the crap out of my system I feel GREAT !!!!! My first goal was 180....have passed that now....then was 160..now not sure if I should shoot for 150 or not..but Ive agreed to listen to my body and see where it wants to naturally plateau.
Picture has me on RIGHT. My friend and I at a concert.

Im willing to help anyone who wants help...I know I couldnt have been as successful as I have been without the help and support of others, especially those Ive met here on Fatsecret !!!!!!
If I can do it....you can too !!!!!!!!!!!

~Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't....I give myself reasons why I CAN !!!!!

FOODS TO AVOID
For me its carbs. I do weigh myself everyday, and I can see immediately on the scale when I eat too much carbs. I try to stick to complex carbs. They dont seem to do as much damage as the refined carbs. But I look at my success as being more a TOTAL approach...sensible meal choices, portion control, and getting off my butt Smile I dont think in my mind one single thing would sabatoge you as much as making better choices overall.

Christmas dinners out
If you can, eat something before you go. That way you wont go into it starving, and be tempted by the things you shouldnt have.

Why this bites to me
My question is....do I really need to see every reply my buddies make to others posts, journals, etc ???? I really just want to see when they write in their own journal so I can support them, etc. Its just seems like Im getting alot of extraneous (spelling? LOL) stuff.
