A lot of the folks that were sparking when I was losing weight last spring seem to have disappeared! Where are y'all? Are you like me , you have lost your initial motivation and lack discipline and maybe are in a standstill or backslide? Hope... Read more

I've been in a serious weight-loss slump for a month or more. I was so motivated last spring and achieved results but I've been really off the wagon! Some of my new pants felt a little snug today and I am struggling to get motivated again. I ... Read more

What is wrong with me? I just can't get excited or motivated about losing weight. It felt so good to drop my 1st 15 or so, but now I just can't rally. I hope hope work returning will put me into a routine and get me refocused, because I lost ... Read more

I had fallen off the wagon. Big time. Yesterday, I had a great start to the day by going on a walk with Spark Friends. It was fun and not a bit strenuous. I then had a sensible lunch and drank almost all my water and shopped some. But then ... Read more

I was sorry to see that I had only lost 1 pound for the month of June, but knew my laziness combined with a big vacation and moving into phase 2 of South Beach were contributing factors. I am getting back to at least ten minutes of exercise eac... Read more

Well...I'm back. I finally had my vacation in Ireland and England. It was nice to travel and see things I've never seen and do things that are out of the ordinary. I did a tremendous amount of walking and stair climbing. I was not that great... Read more

I really enjoy reading all your blogs on South Beach! I wish I had time to read blogs on all my SP teams but alas, there aren't enough free minutes in a day. I am leaving this week for my trip to London and Ireland. I am glad I was able... Read more

I am not being completely faithful to the South Beach Diet. Today for supper I had a very large portion of Hamburger Helper. I enhanced it with an onion and some asparagus, but still. To counteract this sin, I just came in from a 30-minute wa... Read more

Since school ended (I teach), I have been in a bit of a slide diet-wise. I was so pleased to have lost enough to go down a clothing size and was really high on that achievement for quite a while. But lately I've been eating a lot of non-SB foo... Read more

My weight loss is steady. I am reporting 2 more pounds down! Feels good to know that if I stick with my program, it will work! Not only am I eating mostly South Beach, I am eating less frequently and more thoughtfully. Today I went to Panerr... Read more
Slowly getting there

I am happy to report that I am down another few pounds. The weight is coming off slowly, but it was packed on slowly I guess. If I can put as much energy into losing it as I did putting it on, maybe I'll be back to a normal size in a year or s... Read more

I need to get some new clothes for my trip, but I have resisted because I'm trying to lose weight. I haven't had new jeans in over 2 years. My mini-goal before my trip was/is to get down one dress size--and I have! I tried on jeans in my usua... Read more

I have been a little obsessed with getting through one of my classes I am taking online which requires extensive reading/writing. I have finished the work now, and won't be taking another until July. Yea!!! Without that class, I have run out ... Read more

Getting on the scales and seeing a 4-pound decrease was very motivating! I feel so great that I have nearly finished 2 weeks of South Beach! I haven't indulged in eating off-limits foods, but I have not paid enough attention to portion control... Read more
One day at a time

Losing weight means I must put diet and exercise in the foreground of my life versus in the background. I must be obsessed. I am trying to lose weight by using the South Beach Diet. I am on day 7 of this regime. I don't believe I've actually... Read more
