Well give yourself a pat on the back for being aware of your body and deciding to take action! When you have "finished" the diet in the past did you phase off or just go back to eating like you did before ip? I know the first time I did it that's what I did and after a year had put it all back on. This time I am going to do it right and phase off, not just go through phase one and resume my practically only carb style of eating! You can do it!!!
