I am never going to stop trying!
Hi there well I am back here again!

This time its alittle different I stopped doing Atkins and moved over to South Beach.

I find this is a little better to follow long term. If I`M still here long term then I know I was right :hyst:

I have lost 20 pounds so far with SB and I see a change every week so its keeping me motivated. My husband is really dropping weight on this I do hate him at times :) but that's another battle and another forum :lol:

My dream is to walk in a marathon! A 5 k one and i am drawing a line, the bank has one and im going to DO it!!!! next year so that's my goal. I think it would be soooo great if i can be fit enough to at least start one it would blow my mind to finish it!

This is my time to shine :jumpjoy:

Congratulations! It sounds like you're having wonderful results with South Beach. Do you find it a little more restricted than Atkins?

I think your goal for the 5K marathon is great. Something to work towards. I bet you will finish it :)

Hi Mandy,

No I really like this better than Atkins I never went past induction when I was on it and now I made sure I added my carbs and grains and such.

I love that im eating yogurt and can have a glass of milk with dinner :) I eat sandwiches and wraps and lots of fruit and im still losing (happy dance)

I like the low fat... the greek yogurt the 1%milk this I can see as a life time change and not a diet :) and thats what this is all about right???

Well had a bad day yesterday,

so eats want not good because where am i going to get my dinner? its aw where i work sooo a teen burger it was :) and ice cream sigh it was sooo hot and i had no energy so the sugar kicked in in order for me to finish without killing customers :)

Sorry to hear you had a bad day. I hope today is better. I just got back to my desk. We had a mexican themed potluck today for lunch here at work, so I had some temptations, but tried my best to stick to low carb. I just made a small taco salad. I have boiled eggs and some celery and hummus that I brought to work for snacks in case I get hungry later. I resisted the desserts and even the watermelon that everyone said was so good. I'm really trying to keep the carbs as low as possible right now. I found an old pair of Levis that I had put in a garage sale a couple of years ago and they fit again, so that was encouraging. The next time I put them in a garage sale it will be because they're too big :)
