View Full Version : Fun=p1

So apparently a relaxing and celebratory vacation meant "South Beach who?" I thought I'd be better than that, but let me tell you how much I started to miss it and longed to get back on track. What kind of diet is this, anyway? Where it's missed and it feels so good to follow? It does mean work, though, which I was incapable of for 4 days (you only turn 30 once!). Can't see an excuse like this coming along again for a looooooong time.
I gained a whopping 7 lbs!! Hopefully all water... I almost died. Shoulda never stepped on that scale, but I want to learn my body.

So ladies, my question is, P1 for a week? Or should I start over with 2 weeks?

I'd probably only do 3-4 days if it were me. That usually gets me back in line and you're right, a lot of that is water weight and will come off quickly. My fingers are always really puffy after indulging in carbs. It's great that you look forward to SB. That's how I feel to!

Thanks, Anne. 3-4 days makes me feel better. I've really gotten used to ww wraps for lunch, etc and don't have crazy cravings going on or anything. That makes sense.

Anytime I've gone completely off plan for more than one meal, I always do an ultra-clean phase 1 for at least 3 days (usually more like 5).

Hope you had a fab birthday!

4 days of P1 and I'm already back to pre-vaca weight. Woot woot! Love SB! Thanks for your advice, ladies!
