following: yankeefloral's own diet
performance: losing 2.5 lb a week

I'm 56 and would consider myself fairly active but changes in hormonal conditions have added inches to my frame. I've been on Weight Watchers in the past and didn't want to go that route again because of time, money, and I'm just not into that group thing. I started South Beach three weeks ago and have been pretty faithful to the program.

A Traumatic Event
I had to add my "two cents". I too weighed myself at the gym and was 5 pounds heavier but attributed it to clothes. Stick to your scale at home and try to weigh yourself at the same time each day for consistency. Also realize that water weight gain plays into it. If I eat too much beef, salt, or certain cheeses, I can be up sometimes three pounds but loose it the next day.

Haven't had wheat, coffee, sugar, or WINE for 5 days. I'm a little sluggish but that's okay.
