Hi Team!
Well, today is Day 1 of Phase 2 for my husband & I (love that we are doing this together because it's such a mind game for me). I lost almost 7 pounds in my first 2 weeks. I was slightly bummed (ok, more than slightly) that I didn't lose more in my 2nd week, but I understood why: I barely excercised at ALL last week, so of course my weigh in this morning would reflect that.) Oh well, I'm not going to get hung up on it, I just need to make sure I'm staying active. I am feeling good about the 6.6 pounds though, I gotta just chip away at this weight, slow and steady will be fine with me emoticon

After gaining back somewhere around ten pounds as a result of being fed up with a plateau, I'm happy to announce that South Beach appears to have me back on track. I'm ALSO excited that tomorrow marks day fourteen of phase one! I really didn't think I'd stick with it, but I did.

Have faith in yourself and in the future. -Ted Kennedy

Welcome and good luck. My son lost 120 pounds on a modified South Beach in about a year and half. I'm post menopause and didn't have that much to lose so it has been slower for me but I have lost 53 pounds and am real happy with that.

Day 1 Phase 1 for me. I started at lunch because I had to do the stock up grocery trip this morning. I have ALWAYS had a problem with bread and sugar cravings which has been my downfall in other diets. I am very optimistic about this diet from hearing other's stories. I am actually more excited about losing the cravings than the weight! I do yoga about 5-6 times a week and will start adding in walking with my 2 yr old daughter as soon as some of this frozen white stuff melts emoticon
I was weighed at the Dr last week and my scale is still in a moving box so I will dig it out after a week of eating SB and see how I am doing. I am excited to hear more stories because they are so motivating! Thanks everyone!

How long did it take you to lose the 40 pounds?

In 2004, I lost 40 pounds on South Beach. Somehow or other, I let all that weight creep back on, and now I am starting over.

Well that's Week One of 2011 done and dusted.
Iím so-o glad I joined this team on Jan 1. There is such wonderful and detailed info here Ė thank you KIERAE and PRAIRIEDAWNPAM and all the other members that contribute to the message boards, I hope I can return the favour when I get into it more fully. For the moment I havenít even had any need to ask any questions - any queries I had were already answered here.
Iíve had a successful week. Not just because I have lost some weight - 4 pounds - but more importantly to me, eating within the plan has been easy AND Iíve felt great! Iíve got so much more energy and enthusiasm for life. Exercise Ė which is a great hurdle for me Ė has come slightly more easily as Iím no longer bloated and slow. I hope that will continue and improve.

At last - I have found a way of eating which banishes my cravings and makes me more active. It just hasn't felt like a struggle. Seems like magic to me!
RE-ESULT!! Many thanks to all in the South Beach Team

I just started SB Phase 1 today! I normally try to keep my diet in line with Phase 3, but I've gone off track so it's time to buckle down again!

I've found that SB is the only eating plan that works well for me. I have always eaten fairly well and exercise almost every day, so losing even just a pound is so difficult for me. My weight has never made huge shifts, but the pounds have been slowly creeping on. If I follow the SB plan, I'll be able to lose my extra 10 pounds.

I began last week via atkins but have shifted to South beach adding more veggies this week. I AM STUNNED that I am not constantly ravenous. TO me it is as shocking and miraculous as the fact that I've lost 7lbs in a short amoung of time. I had lost hope of ever being able to maintain momentum without constant hunger. I am encouraged and buoyed by the prospect of success in my quest for a healthy and long life. I am glad to have found this team!

I love my new VeganTHUG life!

I've restarted South Beach when as of last February I had lost 10 lbs on the plan, but got into a relationship and the dining out got to me :( I looked in a diet journal from February and I was at 168. When I restarted with SparkPeople I was at 195 (Sept this year). So over summer I gained 30lbs - so sad! My goal is 145-150 at 5'8"

I lost 6 lbs in 1 month just counting calories, but knew I needed to cut the carbs to stop the cravings.

I started SB again on 11/1 and have lost 3.8 lbs in a few days. Within a couple days I've stopped the cravings and walk past Halloween candy with no problem!

I wish everyone the best on their plan and really appreciated reading the stories on this post!

Hey ladies! I lost a total of 7 pounds in phase 1. Best of all, I am not over excited or nervous baout eating the carbs. I had protein oatmeal this am and enjoyed it. It filled me up and satisified me until lunch! Thanks for all your info and support. We'll see how this week with reintrocducing carbs goes. I'm going to cycle them with high and low days alternating. This has worked in the past.

Hello Team,

I wanted to report how I am doing. Some of you may know that I spent 3 weeks in France and came back weighing 1 lbs less, a week later another pound came off. What did I do in France, I ate and walked, walked, walked.

Returning stateside and continuously celebrating the big 50th lead to eating all kinds of baked goods. Anti-SB!! What the frick' was I doing? Then I got sick. Really sick.

So, last week, I purchased the SB Supercharged. My first copy was an original I got from a garage sale. Re-reading the book, in it's new form was energizing. I went to TJ's loaded up on the good stuff and was armed.

When I first started on SB, I lost 2 lbs in Phase I. I was a little disappointed, but I had no sugar cravings.

So, fast forward to the results:

10/24 Weight: 221.6
10/31 Weight: 215.0

What did I do differently? First, I ate fish for six meals. I love that tilipia. I walked hills 3 days and did yoga twice. I was, and still am recovering from that virus so I went easy. Yesterday was the first day of THE Major Hill. I did it. Finally, I not only planned, BUT I WEIGHED EVERYTHING. While it is not a requirement for SB, I needed to know what 6 oz looked like. I actually was pleasantly surprised that I've been cheatin' myself.

So, second week of Phase I is here. The best part of all of this is that I have no cravings, so all the Almond Joys, etc..., don't phase me. Actually, the thought induces nausea.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Chana
Spark Baby!

Hello!

I just joined this team today! I joined SparkPeople 2 weeks ago. I first started the South Beach diet January 2006. I weighed in at 298 lbs at only 5 feet tall! By the end of the year, I had lost 86 lbs. What was amazing to me was that all I had to do was buy the book and follow it. I didn't increase my exercise, though I probably should have! I didn't need pills or surgery! There was no additional cost other than the purchase of the book. After that first year I hit a plateau. Then I met the man who is now my fiance. He spoiled me with dinners out. So, I did gain back some of the weight, but not all of it!!! Now with a wedding to look forward to next July, it's time to dust off my South Beach book and use SparkPeople for additional support. I know I can do it!

Hi I'm Kim :) I just started the South Beach Diet today. I had already lost 54 pounds before starting this, but I need to lose the last 18 pounds or so to get to my ideal weight. I started on my weight loss journey in February of this year. I have been doing well with workouts and healthy eating, but I had to do something new to start seeing results again. No time for "plateaus"... So I'm getting my sugar/carb intake in order. I believe this will help me get to where I want to be!

~Kim :O)

There could be several reasons for the cravings including the one you mentioned. You may have have found a trigger. Be sure and get in a minimum of 1200 calories, and drink your water, eat your snacks, your beans, and low fat dairy, and 4 1/2 cups of veggies a day, lean meat, fat servings. If you need to eat then eat some protein.

This is my very first post with Spark People. I have been on SB Ph1 for 8 days and I have lost 9 pounds. Yesterday and today I have really been craving carbs. Not sure if it's because it's that time of the month or SB is finally gettint to me. Up until this point, things have not been that bad at all. I have never had this type of success with weight loss before and I don't want to sabatoge myself. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Thanks.

-Tracy

The weight loss in phase one is a real motivator.

I lost almost 3.5 pounds my first week on the SB diet..yay! The food was yummy and I never felt deprived! The hardest part has been making myself eat when I wasn't hungry, but it has definately paid off.

Teresa, I hear ya on the thrift store shopping. It is great to get clothes that are cute and not spend a lot, why do it, you are going to just have to do it again in a few months. Save your money for other things. You are a smart lady!

SBD works. I went from 200 to 170 using this diet. In fact. I feel like South Beach changed my life. I felt so OUT OF CONTROL on the sugar. Since then, when I start to feel out of control, I still do a lot of the things I learned. I found that turnips greens with 1/3 cup of pinto beans REALLY satisfy me. If I am famished in the afternoon. A small bowl of cottage cheese can really get me thru those shakey irritable hungries. 12 almonds is a serving and I MUST count them or I won't stop, but getting out 12 and putting the rest away WORKS.

Starting Phase 2 today. Lost a total of 11 pounds on Phase 1 and 6 1/4 inches from my body! I'm already hitting the thrift stores for smaller clothes! I refuse to invest in new "fat" clothes because I KNOW I'll keep losing on this plan. I'm so thrilled with the variety of foods that are "legal" that I don't feel deprived at all. We had 3 parties at work while I was on Phase 1 and I never had a piece of cake or bread or fruit! It wasn't so much about blowing my weight loss but how the carbs would make me feel physically. I'm a little nervous about Phase 2, but I'm planning a very gradual introduction of carbs back into my diet. I'm looking forward to that one piece of fruit a day more than anything!
