I had lost a lot of weight over the past few years. But, last summer, just lost all of my motivation. I just wanted to indulge, indulge, indulge! By the end of the summer, I had gained back 15 pounds. I had lost my weight from just eating healthier, not following any plan, and adding exercise (exercise is a HUGE component for weight loss for me).
I started South Beach in September. The first phase (only 2 weeks long), really broke all my cravings for sugar and processed white flour (I have always been a bread junkie). Since then, I have been able to add in healthy whole grains, and fruit. I have lost 23 pounds since starting SB. The first few days were hard, because of the nasty cravings I had to overcome. But, after the first 4-5 days, they were gone.
I know I have been going on and on about this way of eating around this board for some time, but it is really the only one that works well, and is a healthy, sustainable diet to have. I haven't thought of it as going on a diet, so much as a change in diet. Something I plan on doing for the rest of my life!
