    AFTER PHOTO at 140 lbs. 1 day before my wedding at the resort.



    This is a BEFORE PHOTO (I am in the green dress) when i was 155lbs around Feb. 2010. I lost 15 lbs and dropped to 140 by June 2010 just in time for the wedding. I may have been 1 or 2 lbs under 140 by the actual wedding. Ladies, with a little bit of a workout and eating healthy, cutting carbs and sweets...it can do wonders!31319_1452042859600_1189128436_1298696_1045315_n.jpg

          I jus gotta "keep on keepin' on"...LOL

           

          With the south beach diet you give up carbs and sweets for the first phase, which is 2 weeks. Then you begin phase 2. In phase 2 you reintroduce GOOD carbs such as whole grains, oats, fruit etc.... Two weeks with no carbs would not be a problem for me because I've stayed away from most carbs since I started eating healthy. The only carbs i've been consuming are the healthy carbs such as oatmeal, bananas, pita bread. You'll find that some fruit contains carbs.

           

          Sounds like your metabolism has hit a plateau. If you'd like to lose some more weight, you have to change up your work out regimen. You have will power.... Good for you :)

            Wow orionandmari072510 

             

            You look amazing! Great inspiration for all of us.

            I too need to lose about 15 pounds before November.

            I've started eating healthier, it's just a matter of getting back into exercising ... I was doing great leading up to dress shopping, bought my dress, then the holidays rolled around and it all went out the window.

            Trying to get back into it is difficult, but it will be worth it to look as good as you do in a bikini!

            Thanks for sharing!

              I thought I could never give up carbs either. After a week of not eatting them you really don't miss them, your body stops craving those goods. The good thing about south beach is after the 1st 2 weeks you can start intaking limited "good carbs"

               

              That's good that you don't have much to lose you can just cut back on some sweets and fatty foods. Good Luck!

                Yayyy! So exciting! You're going to feel so great when you start. I'm on day 9 and feel FAB! Let me know if you have any questions about the diet and let me know your progress. How much are you looking to lose in total?

You can pick up the south beach book for about $6 from your local book store. It's a low fat no carb diet, me and my FI are doing it together. He lost almost 8 lb!! He's all about the diet, he signed up for SouthBeachDiet.com and posts on the blogs and gets recipes while I'm on her bloging about the wedding LOL.

                 

                I know where Rockland County is, I used to drove through it all the time driving to SUNY Oneonta from LI. I live in North Brunswick by Rutgers. Wow so jel, I wish I had a shore house. Where is it?

                I'm new to this thread. I just started the South Beach diet last week and lost 10 lb in 7 days. My goal is to loss 30 more lb before my wedding on 12-3-11. I also signed up for personal training sessons at the gym

                 

                Diamond Girl, I need to get ready for our BD shoot!! Where do you live? We should meet up at a park and for a long walk in the spring :)


                Wow!! 10lbs in 7 days?!?! That's freakin awesome!! Did you get the book? would you have recipes to share? If you continue eating well and keep up with the personal training, You'll be ready before summer!!

                 

                Yes, I also am prepping for the BD shoot. I've stepped up my cardio and eliminated some food choices from my diet because I was apparently consuming too much carbs. LOL We'll see what happens after this revision.

                 

                I live in the town of clarkstown in Rockland County, borderline NJ. I also spend a lot of time at the Jersey Shore from spring, throughout the summer. I have a beach house there. That sounds like a plan!! We can do lunch and chat :) Where in NJ are you?


                 


                 


                That's incredible!! Keep up the good work. I'm definitely going to buy the book. I have an idea where North Brunswick is, although i'm still getting familiar with NJ. The house is in Brick, on the Bay side. We're between Pt Pleasant and Toms River. I spend my whole summer there. We got tired of throwing money away on hotels every summer and so we decided to purchase a beach house. Totally worth it :)

                I finally got the south beach diet book!! I actually got two. I got the south beach diet, good fats good carbs guide and the latest south beach diet super quick cook book!! Can't wait to start.... Will begin tomorrow

                    I did weight watchers last year and it really worked for me as long as i stuck to my points.......i decided to go a different route this time, but if this doesnt work I wanna go back to weight watchers, but im kinda confused by the new points plus system....i was used to the old system....it seems the just put a spin on it......on the old one I was allowed 19 points, but now on the points plus i am allowed 29 points........and now the foods that used to be 1 point are now 2 points.........so not sure how confusing it is......that is why i opted the old fashion way this time..........

                     

                    But like i said last time it really worked for me......i just didnt feel like spending money all over again for all the new info.

                     

                    Let us know how it is going for you............keep up the good work.....Just think it will all be worth it........i drive past like say........Wendy's fast food now and i think.......Oh hell NO...i didnt spend 1.5 hours at the gym to waste it on french fries.........so I am trying to reprogram my brain......it seems to be working.....
