Hello, Jacqui and everyone else. I'm just starting this team as well. I'm not really on any particular plan, just trying to lower my carbs so I can manage my diabetes. I have done the South Beach Diet before, and I suppose you could say I'm in stage 2. Basically, I'm trying to eat the carbs that will help me keep the weight I've lost off and even lose more. Just trying to get those 5 fruits/vegetables per day has been very helpful. I just have to be more vigilant in choosing those lower carb varieties or watchin the portion size of those that aren't so low carb.

I'm glad to be a part of the team and am looking forward to getting more guidance in food choices.

Welcome Jacqui!
I'm fairly new to all of this too (6 weeks in) but I'm absolutely loving it so far. Hope to read more about you along the way.

I've been doing this for years and am still in the learning phase. LOL. I seem to always be learning something new.

Welcome!! Glad to see you on this team too. We have a lot of people who do South Beach and all kinds of other smart carb diets. Most of of us eat like you do for the same reason. Cheating triggers cravings and sends us spiraling into a free dive. LOL.

Welcome!

I can do the SBD, and lose weight.....when I don't follow it, I gain the weight back. It's a lifestyle I can live with. Good luck with your plan!

Welcome.

It does sound like you need to find a lifestyle that will work for you. Once you lose the weight, you need a way of living that will keep you there. I do think that being "smart" about carb choices can do that. I know that I have to be careful with some types of carbs (starches and sugars) or I will want/need more and more, but I can eat all the veggies I want without troubles. I'm currently into my third year of weight loss maintenance.

Hi Smart Carbers!

My name is Jacqui, I just joined this group yesterday, I'm also in the South Beach group, as that's the diet I really stick with.

I've had great success with South Beach in the past, having lost 60lbs for my wedding 4 years ago... and then promptly gaining it all back and then some. whomp whomp...

My work is having a weight loss competition and I signed right up, seeing as I'm so good at losing weight. Really, I'm great at it! I'm just even better at gaining it back, unfortunately. Anyways...

I'm new to the group, looking for new ideas, support, and some chit chat. I've done other diets before, Weight Watchers most recently, and while I did have success with that as well, I love the way South Beach diet takes the counting and the guess work out. Basically, I know what I can eat, and what I can't, so it's pretty easy peasy.

I also feel better when I'm not eating carbs, and I definitely feel like sugar and refined carbs are definitely an addiction for me. One taste and I immediately spiral out of control, and binge eat for days. When they are out of my system, I feel great, have no cravings, and I do great.

Hi all!!
