Default Getting Ready For Phase II

2 solid weeks on Phase I, 8 lbs. lost, I can't decide if I want to move up to Phase II or not yet. I thought I'd wait until I got bored with Phase I. But with all the options and how easy it's been, I wonder if that will ever happen!

In looking forward to celebrating Phase II, I picked up some cherries at the grocery store today. I'm shocked that I'd ever consider a fruit a treat. I'm a cake with icing, heavy on the icing, kind of gal. But with the 8 lb. weight loss, my pants are no longer trying to strangle me from the middle, I am loving SBD!

As I sit here, reading and writing posts, I am happily enjoying a platter of celery with hummus. It's been a wonderful week of eating out, staying on the program, and getting some control over my weight.

I really should allow myself a little "party" and spend the week on Phase II foods. If I end up standing still in the weight loss, I can always go back to Phase I.

I can see doing this for a very long, very healthy time!

Any tips for moving onto Phase II?

You certainly sound pumped and positive. Congratulations on your loss.

Go into Phase II slowly. Lots of us call it Phase I.5. Just add one thing at a time - e.g. a serving of fruit every day for a week.

I suggest you NOT "party" this week and go back to Phase I if you gain. Phase I works for weightloss the first time but is primarily a detox phase. Doing it again will not result in a big loss and it is not nutritionally complete.

Check out the FAQ Stickies for more Phase I hints.

what ruth said.

for me moving from phase 1 to phase 2 was nothing with nothing

the first week i had strawberries after dinner
the second week i had oatmeal for breakfast (and berries after dinner)
the third week I tried a new fruit (and continued with my strawberries)
the fourth week i had a second grain (at dinner)

it's better to go slow.
