Hi everyone! How are you all doing? This messageboard is soo quiet now. I remember when I first started the SBD back in 2004, this board was the best place to come for inspiration. So I’m back J

I'm back because, well, I need to get realigned with the right eating principles. With my new job and traveling all the time, I veered off course little-by-little, til I just didn't care to prioritize my healthy eating habits. You might be thinking, "well if they're habits then it should have been easy to stick with it!" True! I am totally at fault for reaching for the cheesecake while I was traveling just for the fun of having it. All of those 'treats' are showing now. - I gained about 17 pounds. On my petite frame, it shows badly. I previously stayed on the SBD WOE for 9 years with really no problem at all! This weight gain just happened within the span of about 5 months. Anyway, I had a big wakeup call when I saw my stomach showing under my tshirt and also my upper arms looking huge. I actually had to buy a larger bra too. It's time for me to get a grip on being physically healthy again.

Would love to hear some advice...Do you think I should start at phase 1? Or phase 2? I’m inclined to starting fresh at phase 1.   Also, are there any new sbd guidelines that have come out within the last couple years?

Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I'm new here...a friend of mine used this board religiously several years ago while she was doing South Beach. I've started Phase 1 today and looking for fellow South Beachers!
