I have been following the Beach since January 1st of this year. Allow yourself some time. It took my body about 4 weeks into Phase 2 before it "got it" and then I have seen less up and downs. Now, it is a steady weight lose. Sometimes, it is 1.5 lb, sometimes it is 3 lbs per week. It still averages out to be about 8 lbs per month.
I have only been "off" the food plan for 6 days when I went home to see my critically ill Mom. Other than that, it has been the Beach.
I think you will find yourself really liking this food plan. It is just the most uncomplicated way to eat and live. No one knows I am "dieting" and I like that. I let my clothes and figure do the talking.
Congrats on your good beginning.
