Re: South Beach Diet

We (wife, daughter, me) have been on SBD for 16 days and love it. Thought I would miss rice, pasta, and potatoes but I really don't. I've lost 18 lbs, daughter has lost 12.5 lbs. and wife has lost 3.5 lbs (she is a little pear shaped and post-menepause which is, they say, the hardest type to lose). All of us are noticing HUGE changes in body shape and clothes fitting. My gut is about 4" smaller and due to working out with weights, my chest has almost caught up with my gut size so I look flatter overall. Don't get discouraged if you don't have dramatic weight loss, the body change and health benefits are enormous!
