Today I started a new diet. Right before I got married, I did the South Beach diet and I lost 20 lbs in about three months. This was my perfect size. I am almost to my pre-pregnancy weight, after having a baby about year ago. I confess to weighing 158 lbs. My perfect weight is 130 lbs. That is 28 lbs to lose. I know through hard work I will be able to do it, and your support will help me through it. Wish me luck!
