So, I did IP last year, got to goal, have maintained for almost a year. In September I did Phase 1 for 18 days to loose 5-7 pesky pounds that were creeping on. I phased off and have been "maintaining" since the end of September. I began phase 1 yeterday as I am going on VK next Friday for a week and want to have some wiggle room. When I saw my coach yesterday to pick up food, she said that I could do phase 1 this week and then next week a couple days of phase 2, a couple of phase 3 before I leave on Friday. I see on hear that people say you HAVE to phase off if you do phase 3 for any amount of time, even just a week.
On that note, let's say I do loose 3-5lbs this week. Isn't that all water weight anyhow?
