Hi, I'm new to the board. I did really well on Phase I. I lost 12 lbs, but then we went camping right when I started Phase II. Lets just say I gained back 5 lbs. Do I go back to Phase I until I lose the weight I gained and then continue on with Phase II? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Anna :)

Hi Anna! You could go back to phase one... how long have you been off phase II? cause if it was just a couple of days... I would say that it doesn't matter and just stay in p2 but if was significant like a couple of weeks then you can go back to p1. Welcome to the beach. get cozy! :grouphug: and goodluck!!

Thanks Katie. I was off phase I for about 5 days, however I was only on phase II for a few days. I think I'll stick to phase I until I lose the 5 lbs that I gained. My hubby is following the diet too, and he cheated with me, unfortunately, but he only gained 2 lbs!!!! What's with that!! LOL He's sticking to phase II.

Welcome, csanna. It's nice to have another Canadian on The Beach.

Ruth! This beach is AWASH with Canadians, dripping their maple syrup over one another, chopping down the trees, eating bacon. Phhlleeeeese.....

(anna welcome. But do lay off the maple syrup. Not OP at all....) ( it is ok to go on chopping trees down, although not on an ecological level I suppose...)

Saying "eh", eating b:censored:r pies, taunting us rural livers with dim sum... ;) Seriously, it's good to have you, Anna, even if you are Canadian! :lol: Welcome! :wave:

Your plan sounds good to me. I think with that many days and that big a gain, you would want to Phase 1 it for a bit, but I bet those pounds will melt off. I think a lot of people on here have found that to be the case when they jump off the wagon for a bit.

Now, don't be a stranger...keep posting! :D

Thanks everyone for your welcome. I would love to find some Maple Syrup without any sugar!! Now that I can go for... LOL!! We almost had to cut a tree down yesterday when we were trying to leave our campsite. We couldn't get our trailer out of the site because of a tree. I don't think the park rangers would have been too happy with us!!

:lol3: Anna, that is hilarious! Did the tree move while you were sleeping? How did you get stuck? Sounds like something that would only happen to DH and me!

Clovey, you're just jealous because you're the only Brit left over there. :D The rest of us have all moved east. (west?)

oooh, we had a tree fall on our tent once when we weren't in it. A tornado tore through the campsite while we were off on a hike. One more reason why I hate camping. Had to sleep in the darned car.

Anna, I like to (okay, I don't do this ANYMORE!) pour some maple syrup into a shot glass (or a brandy glass, depending on the circumstances) and sip it. :D

Don't sweat the "vacation" punnds. I gained a few on my Panama trip, but they're coming right back off now that I'm home./ Remember, this is a lifestyle, not a jailhouse :lol:

The tree was always there, but we got a new 29 ft trailer. We're used to a small tent trailer and the hubby just couldn't figure out how to get off the site. We were a great source of entertainment for all the older retired couples that were camping near by. They all pitched in and got a rope and tied it to the tree so we could push the tree out of the way. It was HILARIOUS!!! Luckily it was only a birch tree and we could move it. I'm sure they are still talking about us around the campfire!! LOL

Welcome from another Canadian --just a tad west of you, though.

Oooh, Ellis, that sounds good! We visited a sugar farm last spring. They tap off a bit of syrup each hour to check it for whatever, and we were there as they were doing it, so they gave each of us a dixie cup of warm syrup. It was amazing!

[QUOTE=csanna]Thanks everyone for your welcome. I would love to find some Maple Syrup without any sugar!! QUOTE]

I know in the states there is a low carb, no sugar, maple syrup it is made with imatation maple extract, I don't know the name of off the top of my head but I can't eat my eggs without it, when I go home I'll get the bottle to find out what it is. It's no where as good as real maple syrup but, it will have to do.

PS. Welcome to the beach, I also gained some pounds this past weekend, grrrr.... went back to phase one and they are already came back off, so i would say just go to phase 1 for a few days...

I'll have to look for that here and thanks, I would love to know the name of that product. I've been on Phase I since Tuesday, but I only lost 1 lb. I thought it would have come off by now. I lost weight relatively easy when I went through Phase I the first time.

I know we have a couple of sugar free maple syrups in our syrup aisle at the grocery store here. I just bought whatever one was cheapest. Haven't used it yet, so couldn't tell you what it tastes like, though.

That's right it does and who knows, maybe we are related. But are you Italian? If you're not, then I doubt we are. Or, we could have been separated at birth!! My imagination is getting the best of me!! LOL :dizzy:
