The amount of weight one will lose during Phase 1 differs from person to person, taking into consideration their weight, height, body structure, exercise, and so many other factors.

Welcome! I don't rememeber and didn't keep track. I was very pleased with myself for sticking to it and I felt so much better after finishing.

Best wishes!

Mo- The first 4-5 days I had lost 6 lbs. I lost my 7th on Saturday morning (day 12) but really messed up yesterday at a party so I am back up 2.5lbs. I will be doing an extra week of Phase 1 to get back on track. Around Day 6 I started changing up my food because I was bored and I went through several days of constipation and loss of appetite. It was horrible!!

I just finished Phase I last night, weighed in before brunch this morning, and I lost . . . 9 lbs! I've done South Beach several times now over the past few years and that was BY FAR the best I've ever done on Ph I. ( I think last time I lost 4 or 5 lbs.)

I'm actually a little nervous about Phase II. I love bread/pasta etc., and I think one of the reasons I did so well on Ph I was I followed the rules with very few cheats (a little wine). Now, I'm a little worried about the carbs kicking me down the hill on a carb roll (one bite and then I eat far more than just a serving.)

If I start gaining back weight, I'm going to do what Shelly's doing and go back to Phase I.

Good luck MoEstrada!

I lost 6.5 lbs. on Phase 1 when I started SB in January of this year.

I lost 8# in Phase I. I do go back to Phase I for 3-4 days every once in a while when I've been bad!

Honestly, I didn't weigh myself until I had been on SB for 2 months. At that time I had lost 45 pounds.

Wow! You didn't weigh yourself. I don't know if I could have done that!!! 45 in 2 months sounds like a dream to me!!! YOu must have really stuck to it tooth and nail.

Natasha: 45 lbs. between weigh-ins. That's fantastic!!!! Did you have any "tricks" (things that kept you on course)?

I don't know how many lbs. I have lost because i have not weigh my self sense March and i dont want to until i am done with phase 1 But i am so proud and excited for you ladies and hearing your replys gave me the extra motivation i was looking for. My ultimate goal is to loose 35 lbs. I just pray and hope to be healthy and to keep going is now or never!

I was VERY pleased w/ the results. I did stick to it pretty much...I think I cheated one day and that was by having a bun w/ a burger at a cookout.

Honestly, I think the biggest thing was that I cut out Pepsi. I was a Pepsi addict and drank at least 3 cans and 2 or 3 large glasses per night. Plus I cut down on my portions BIG TIME...and b/c it's part of the SB plan, I went from eating 1 big meal per night to eating 3 small meals and 2 snacks (okay, I'm still having trouble w/ 3's usually more like 2 meals and 3 snacks instead). Oh...and I was on Phentermine those first few months, too...that may have had something to do w/ it as well.

I lost 12 pounds in the first two weeks but then I stopped, despite remaining on Phase 1 with the occasional piece of fruit. I have lost 14 pounds in about four weeks and am hoping to break the plateau I hit since losing the recent fourteen.

I have read that you lose about 10% your total weight loss target.... we will see about that! :)

I almost think it depends on whether you've done Southbeach before. The first time I did phase 1 I lose 11 pounds in the first two weeks...which rocks!! However, I just completed phase 1 again and this time I only lost 5 pounds in the two weeks. But then again I wasn't completely off Phase 2 before I began this phase 1 again.

But hey, it's still a loss!!!:carrot:

just throwing my 0.02 in here. i am halfway through phase 1 and so far have lost about 7 pounds. :carrot: that seems like a LOT-- but this is coming from someone who ate nothing but high carb foods for years. (literally would have toast for breakfast, pasta for lunch, pasta for dinner. sickening, right? almost no veggies and certainly not a lot of lean protein... )

good luck all!

None thus far, but I'm only on Day 4. But you know what, my stomach feels flatter which is an absolute miracle because my Celiac Disease has made my gut look anywhere between "5-months-along to coming-to-term pregnant." I don't have the swollen feeling anymore! That is a great gift! Plus the stomach pains have all but dissipated.

I'm on phase one, day six and have lost nine pounds. I think week two is going to do battle with PMS symptoms, so I'm hoping the weight that comes off when the natural bloating occurs will be impressive!

I'm on day 4 today and lost 3 lbs. so far. I'm worried because didn't do any running/ walking on the treadmill yesterday because I've come down with a bad sinus/cold thing. Maybe today I'll just try and a little something even if it's not as rigorous.
