I have been having such a hard time to finish phase 1. I don't just end up going to phase 2, I end up blowing it all. I do well on weekdays, but when it comes to the weekend I can't seem to stay motivated.
I usually start phase 1 on Mondays, which I think may be my problem. So today is Saturday, and I decided to start off fresh today. Since I usually do well when I start off on phase 1 I figure if I start off on a day that I usually struggle, I will be able to stick with it.
I've been told that maybe I should just switch to phase 2. However, I really need phase 1, not only to lose a few pounds quickly, but to get rid of my sugar and carb cravings.
I'm back to my highest weight of 213, so I need to do this not only for appearances, but for my health. I am only 5'0, so this really isn't a healthy weight for me. I know I can do this because I did SBD before and went down to 168, but depression and stress took over again and the weight kept creeping up. I hardly noticed until I weight myself and was over 200 again.
Does anyone have good suggestions to stay on track and stay motivated?
