Hello,

I'm your Community Leader for the SBD. I'm so happy that this board is up

and ready to go. I want to make yourself at home and lets' get to know each other.

I'll start first...my name is Michelle,39 years old and I am married to a wonderful

man name Richard and 3 beautiful children. I have been on the SBD for 12 weeks and lost

29 lbs.

Wow!!! Cathy what an inspiration you are...:) I really believe that SBD will get the rest of the weight off. I too was on WW...I lost 18 lbs on it and gained 9 lbs back the lost 29 lbs ob SBD. It is very doable.

I'm so glad you are here...:)

Michele, like everyone else, I want to say "thank you" for starting this board. I hope to gain a lot from it.

My name is Marcie, I'm in St. Louis. I have a beautiful 8 year old who thinks I'm "fine the way I am", but I do need to lose a few pounds.

My boyfriend and I started the diet this past week. I'm on day 4, he's on 3. Nice to have the support that close, but he makes me read the book and tell him what he can and can't eat ;-)

Good luck to all of you.

Marcie

I know how to stop craving chocolate, but how do I stop craving hot chicken wings?

So glad to finally see SBD boards here! I am 36 years old and married with two children. I've successfully tried WW and Atkins both but have gotten myself into a funk recently. I need to lose 30 pounds and am really looking for a lifestyle change. I don't feel fully vested in either a high carb/low fat diet or a low carb/ high fat diet. This definitely seems like a healthy middle ground. I have the book and am planning to begin wholeheartedly on 7/21. Looking forward to this boards for support.
