    I’ll be starting my 8 week BSD the day after Christmas and I’d like to find another beginner that I can be accountable to.

    Thanks.

    Hi California Sunshine, welcome and hope you find another newbie to join you. We have a weekly thread starts every Tuesday called One week at a Time, starting…… date. Feel free to join in on that, it is a mix of people who have been doing this forever like me and everyone in between.

    Hi California Sunshine. I’m not exactly a beginner. I’ve been at this some months. But I am another California girl if that counts for anything. And I’m going to have to start all over again after Christmas too.

    I’m in the Los Angeles area. Where are you (generally speaking, of course, don’t dox yourself)?

    Northern California. I have to do this, my doctor is threatening insulin!

    You’ll be so glad you chose this route! Really! It won’t be long before you’re really feeling the difference. Getting the habit started is the most difficult part. I’ll be glad to keep you company.

    From one sunshine to another, please please try not to go onto insulin. It is very difficult to turn back from it. I was very ill with the oral meds so didnt have much of a choice but I gained 15kg in 6 months. Even though I have been doing this diet for over 4 years – because it really does work at keeping BG low – I doubt I will ever be free of the daily insulin injections. There are other pluses to this diet in that I have the lowest cholesterol I have ever had. Tested last week and it was 3.7. Reduced all other meds and even had BP of 110/70. This is not just a weight loss plan, it is a life saver.

    Thanks so much. Making my grocery list and going to the market in the morning. Tomorrow will be my first day, and I’m actually looking forward to it.
