Hello Everybody! This is my first post on 3FC but I've been lurking for quite some time (you've all given some much needed advice and info!). I am just finishing day six of Phase 1 of South Beach (And I haven't cheated! holy cow!), and two days in, I had dropped three pounds, from 260 to 257. Four days in, I was ecstatic to be at 254 from 257. Now six days in, I'm back up to 257. I'm trying not to panic as just a few days ago I was literally doing a victory dance in my bathroom
, but I need to know if this fluctuation every few days is normal. I have heard that the initial loss in phase one is mainly composed of water, if this is true, I could blame some of the weight gain on a few pieces of turkey bacon and a serving of salted cashews (only 15, I know). Any thoughts? I'd appreciate any insight.. I've got sixty pounds to lose and am hoping to do it on the beach!
PS am keeping up with previous exercise routine of 45 mins cardio 3x a week followed by 15 of strength training.
Thanks a ton!
