Default Phase 1 During Birthday Week?

Hi All: I am planning to start Phase I tomorrow, but my husband just pointed out the my birthday is later this week. Just read on another thread that doing a very clean Ph I is essential, so now I'm wondering if I should wait until after my bday to start. Or would one day of potential off-planniness right up front mess with my plan too much? (Should also mention that I've done SBD before and lost 40 pounds but then gained it back after some surgeries and enforced passiveness. This time, I want to change everything for life, not treat it like a "diet"!) Any thoughts would be welcomed. Thanks!

I started the SBD the day after my birthday almost 2 weeks ago. I knew I was going to eat everything, so dont set urself up for that. Enjoy ur food, and take this time to get ready w/ shopping lists. Good luck and happy early birthday!

If it were me..... I would wait. In fact, my bday is a week from July 4th. I am going to tackle this last 20 pounds then! I took a little vacation from WL when I got married and I am having a hard time getting back on.

I would definitely wait to start SB until after your BD. A clean Phase I is very important for success on this plan and I always have to "splurge a little" on my BD.
