S/C/G: (body fat) >34.5%/?/<25%

Height: 5' 6", small frame, "obese" body fat


The first time I tried SBD, I pretty much stayed on Phase 1 the whole time (about 5.5 months!! It was before I found this forum. I wouldn't recommend it; I was doing crazy stuff like chain-chewing sugarfree gum and I missed an entire summer/autumn of delicious fruits ....). NOT GOOD.

It took me that long to lose 13 lbs, back to my "happy weight" of 129 lbs. It's slow-going when you get down to less than 15 lbs to lose

Now I do find I have to "tweak" SBD to work for me - focusing on more protein and little to no grains and ALWAYS 4+ cups of veggies per day ... but I wouldn't stay on full Phase 1 for longer than 2 weeks at a time. I find that I start eating way too much cheese and nuts and "treats" when I stay on too long, which can really hamper the weight loss.
Mini-goal #1 (ala Beck Diet Solution): Lose 5 pounds. Start date: October 31. Completed Nov 21! = 21 days.
Mini-goal #2: Lose 5 pounds AGAIN. Start date: November 22.
2016 CHALLENGE: Get back on modified Ideal Protein Diet until 25 pounds lost total. Start exercising!!!
>>>Revised goal ends up ~1619% total weight loss
