following: The South Beach Diet
performance: losing 2.0 lb a week

Hello all! I'm only 25 but have been struggling with weight my entire life. Fat Camp when I was younger, Weight Watchers, starvation, you name it, I've probably tried it.

This time around, I've got to make it work. At 5' 2", I clocked in at 247 lbs on January 2, 2009. I'm on South Beach Diet as recommended by my doctor. My health has started to suffer because of my weight. My doctor is concerned that I'm only a few years away from being prediabetic.

What's another reason? I'm getting married on November 7th! I want nothing more than to be a healthy and thinner bride!

My life is amazing! Now, my body needs to catch up!

bottom right how does your diet compare?
I also absolutely hate that thing! Ignore it. You know what you are doing, so just keep doing your thing!

What Do You Have for Breakfast?
Every morning I have an egg, 2 slices turkey bacon OR 2 pieces Canadian bacon, and a whole wheat English muffin 3 times a week.

I'm looking to switch it up a little, but I still need something reasonably fast.

I'm looking for a carb-friendly-er replacement for my English muffin. While they are 100% whole wheat, they have 120 cals and 23 carbs! Hence why I eat them sparingly!

Any suggestions?

Energy level question...
How strange! I have an egg every morning with my breakfast and have never felt like that.

Maybe your body just doesn't mesh well with eggs! Good luck!
