Default Scared to start Phase 2

I'm new to SBD and just completed my 2nd week. I'm a little nervous about starting Phase 2 because I have only lost 10 lbs. I don't want the weight loss to slow down. Anyone else feel this way?

, jesste! Ten pounds is a lot to lose on Phase 1, so congratulations!

Phase 2 is where the real weight loss begins, although it will be slower, but you can follow this plan the rest of your life. We have a couple of threads in our FAQ section that you'll find very helpful to guide you into the correct way of introducing more foods into your menu. Good luck, and we hope to see you around!

I agree with Cottage. The initial weight loss in Phase 1 is mostly water, Phase 2 is where the fat loss begins (the sustainable weight loss) and while it is slower, it will be easier to maintain the loss.

Good luck!

100 lbs. down plus a carrot for every 5 more

I remember reading in the South Beach Diet book that it is okay for individuals with more weight to lose to stay on Phase 1 for an additional week or two, but not much longer than that.

Congratulations on your success so far!

I added Phase 2 foods slowly and still don't go crazy with starches. Read up on how to reintroduce foods and recognize triggers and you'll do great!
