Going slowly into Phase II is what most of us Beachers do. It allows you to see what foods cause cravings or stall your weight loss. I only added one thing each week. Oatmeal first week. Had oatmeal and fruit the next week, etc. What a fantastic way to start off South Beach.

Have you taken measurements. I was so excited to see my waist measurements shrinking. Don't get too bummed if your losses slow way down in Phase II.

Default Good Job

Good Job! You are a winner. I feel very hopeful I can lose some too!
This is only day three for me.
How often did you weigh in during the 19 days?
I am trying very hard to resist the scale and my goal is to weigh in only at the end of the two weeks.
Keep up the good work!

Moncheree! That's great work! Best of all, I bet you feel fantastic. It was a revelation to me when I realized how much time I spent thinking about, dreaming about, and focusing on food. Being free of cravings was like a huge gift of time!

As for Phase 2, don't be afraid! It's AWESOME! I gained a little (five pounds) after starting P2, but I lost it all in a couple weeks and went on to lose another 100 pounds. It takes a little time to figure out what works for you, but it's SO worth it. Here are some threads to help you:

Emergency Handbook for Phase 2 This thread has links to tons of other threads that help you work into P2.
What's your P2 Combo? Information about how to start P2 and about the specific "combos" that work for our members (i.e. how much fruit, starch, etc. they can have and still lose weight in P2).
Just in case anyone is too afraid to start P2 and is considering extending P1, here's a thread to help you reconsider: Phase I Time Limit - from The Daily Dish

Losin it for Good, plateaus are (unfortunately) a part of every weight loss journey. Hold on and you're due for a "whoosh" of weight dropping off. In the meantime, try changing things up. Eat something different (an apple instead of berries, for instance), eat what you've been eating but change when you eat it (try having your fruit at dinner instead of breakfast), and change the type of exercise you're doing and/or when you do it. That seems to help. If you are still not moving forward, try entering your calories into an online calculator like www.fitday.com and see if you're eating too little or too much. And make sure you get enough water. You'll see a change soon!

linniet ~ the only thing I didn't follow was the caffeine. I love my coffee and tea... so I went only three days without caffeine. But the rest... followed it to the letter...

Most people that don't have a lot to lose don't have such a large weight-drop in Ph1. Like, if you only had 15 lbs to lose, you wouldn't lose it all in Ph1. I think it's a great thing!!!! Good for you!!!!

Oh okay. I didn't realize that! Well, I feel like I still have a lot to lose. I mean my WLG is 105. I started out at 158.. thats 53 pounds. I am really short and petite so 10 pounds looks like 20 pounds on me. If only I was 5',9"... LOL then I would not have a weight issue. LOL!!!!!!!
