following: The South Beach Diet
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

10 years ago I was a size 18 - after a bout of strep throat I lost weight and it made me re-evaluate my health..I would tie my shoes and blood would rush to my head !..I felt sluggish...and I was only 30 yrs old..and my children were old enough that the "baby fat" that I had gained while pregnant wasn't an excuse. I took control of my health. I counted fat - everything under 5 grams, ate smaller portions, more veggies etc..and it worked..I am a still a size 10.
However, I had begun to slip..I indulged more, gave myself permission to celebrate and snack more often..and my size 10 was stretching to an 11..I stopped wearing my bikini..and bought a one-piece..I started the south beach diet three weeks ago and I have lost almost ten goal weight is 135..and a size 8..but most importantly I have discovered a new way to look at the way I eat..
