View Full Version : round 2 with SBD

hi everyone. I've tried the SBD before, but only got to the first week in phase 2 because of external circumstances (little brother had to have surgery, little sister got in a bad car accident, within like a month of each other) so emotions were running havoc for awhile and the last thing on my mind was changing my eating habits. so now my summer vacation is coming to an end and its going to be my last year of college and I want to do something for me. For added motivation I got invited to go to Florida in January with my boyfriends family, so I'd like to look half way decent in a bathing suit. :lol: so I figured I'd give SBD another try. It's day 7 for me, and I've lost 5 lbs already. :D I've been exercising reguarly and really trying to stick to the plan, although tonight I might go a bit astray because we're having dinner at my grandmothers and she's making german food. Well, thanks for listening and hopefully I'll post more reguarly this time around :)

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your family troubles. As far as Grandma's house goes. Just eat what is OP and don't eat the rest. Good luck.

Welcome, Krista! :wave:

Sorry to hear about the family troubles...I hope everyone is feeling much better! :grouphug:

If you know that you ate anything not allowed in Phase 1, you might want to start from the day after you went to your grandmother's. Most people find that if they cheat at all (even a tiny bit), Phase 1 just doesn't work as well, either during the Phase or in setting you up for success in Phase 2.
