Puttin' it out for the world to see.

There you have it. Today, I started the South Beach Diet Supercharged. My husband has also started it, but he probably won't be hardcore about it like I am. I'm still 2 1/2 lbs. under where I started when I got pregnant with Henry, so I'm happy about that, but I'm NOT happy with how I feel. I just don't feel good about myself and I cringe when I see pictures. I don't like what I see, I want to be a good influence on my children and I want to feel good. I'm at 179.5 lbs.

I've had numerous temptations today and I didn't fail and let myself down. A friend and I took our kids to McDonald's to play today - I ate 2 hamburger patties with NOTHING on them and had a diet coke. I didn't touch a french fry or chicken nugget, even though they were in my face the entire time. They smelled OH! SO! GOOD!, but I looked the other way and sucked down my diet coke...lol

So, I'm hoping those of you that read my blog will help me stay on the straight and narrow - you see where I am and what I'm working toward. We have a wedding to go to in Cape Cod on August 22nd - I want to look FANTASTIC and feel that way, too!

Good luck!!! It's HARD to lose weight but we'll help you stay on track. So, what's your "gift" for yourself after you lose the weight? Maybe a smokin hot skin tight dress for the wedding :)

Way to go on the McD's victory!!

Wow Tina, we are almost the exact same weight. I was 195.6 back in November, but now I am 175.6. I have 2 weddings in Sep as well as my MIL coming and then my SIL coming in November. I want to be in great shape by Sep for sure!
