I went 5 days on SB---then drank Friday night at a banquet dinner---I basically had diet cokes and rum...a few. I didn't notice a weight gain today (sunday) but then again it could be coming soon!
Do I have to start all over?
Also, how quickly do you see the weight loss in phase one.... even after the 5 days I only noticed a pound or two. :mad:

I think you should start over. It is very important not to cheat on Phase I as your body needs to detox.
Weightloss results vary. It depends on how much you have to lose, activity level and whether you've been dieting before. Some people lose quickly at the beginning of the Phase and then slow down; others are the reverse and drop in the second week.

ugh. I know i shouldn't have. It was so hard!!
I guess I will start over... sigh.

I havent really dieted before, I only exercised a little that week. I guess I just expected to see the loss quicker.

Over here. :wave: Just make your way back to the beach. I think most of us have had an oops kind of meal or day at one time or another.
