Even though I don't want to get hung up on weight, I was getting tired of my clothes getting slowly tighter and tighter. I've made a few changes over the past year that did diddly-squat for halting this process, so I decided to give my metabolism a real kick in the butt by repeating the South Beach diet. I did it about 7, 8 years ago with good - but not permanent - success. This time around, with everything I've learned from SP, I hope I can make it last. Lost 5 pounds the first week which is to be expected. I know it's not "true fat" but at least it's a sign that something is happening.
I don't think carbs are "bad" but maybe I've got to be more restrictive. I've never met a pastry I didn't like, and baked goods are everywhere, easy to buy, easy to make, easy to grab and throw in my lunch bag. Low carb food takes more time to prepare but I've just got to take the time, at least for now.
