Great response, Batmomm!
Exactly...as long as you do P1 long enough to get rid of your cravings, it'll always do that just fine, no matter how many times you do it. But if you are using it to lose weight, it will help you lose less and less over time until it's actually less helpful than P2.
Just use it for what it's meant...to help you get rid of cravings and set you up for success in P2. If you find you can't make it through two weeks (though I think we can all do anything for 2 weeks!
Think of Sandi's sig: "If you want something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse." I find it to be so true!), just do it until your cravings are gone and move on to P2. It's better to do that than to throw in the towel entirely.
And remember...success is just getting back up one more time after you fall. We all fall...it's a human thing...getting back up and trying again is how we make it to goal.
