performance: losing 1.4 lb a week
I'm a wife, mother and grandmother of 3. Need to lose 50-60 pounds to get to a healty weight. Have done WW 3 times, but when I stop going, it all comes back and more. I think WW allows me too much leeway, and too many excuses. I read the SB book after my brother recommended it, and realized that years ago, before "fat free" came along, this was the way I used to eat. (and I was 80 pounds lighter then). SB makes a lot of sense. It's also helped me "rediscover" fresh cooking - herbs, veggies....The first few weeks were tough - some unexpected "life issues" may have slowed me down, but they didn't stop me, and now it's much easier. I have a (delayed)50th b-day celebration in July and want to be in great shape for it, so that's my inspiration.
