Weekly Diet News Digest

has opened my eyes to new possibilities. Possibilities that I felt were out of reach for me. My self-esteem was suffering due to the weight that I had gained; weight that I had gained because of my loss of zest and enthusiasm for everyday living. Diet.com and the Fresh Start Challenge gave that all back to me.

My stride is a bit more confident. My laugh is a bit louder. And my smile? Well all you need to do is take a look at my beaming picture to know that I am thrilled with the new me. Sure, I'm not at goal yet, but I've come this far and now? Well now, there is no looking back.

I am thankful for the opportunity that Diet.com has given me. I don't think that I would have been successful doing this challenge alone.

The Blogs and Boards worked best for me. Also, having a Leader answering all of our questions and cheering us on was extremely helpful too. I never felt like I was out here all alone, trying to figure it all out. The postings that I read, created and responded to helped to keep me on track.

Keep up the great work! I am losing pounds too, from the South Beach Diet. I eliminated ALL sugars, pastas and grain products from my diet for 2 weeks. I have lost about 7 pounds in 11 days. I eat vegetables and high protein food, mainly turkey & chicken. Love how my clothes are starting to fit. I will slowly get back to eating fruits, as the first 2 weeks of the South Beach diet doesn't allow fruits. I also swim every morning, and can feel the pounds dropping. I also weighed 201 pounds, and MUST drop weight, and am doing so! YES!!!
