Default restarted Phase 1

Hi there! I have only written a few times, but I am on the site often. I really appreciate all the info you guys give.

I have been on the SBD for a few months. I have lost 13 pounds total. Before Thanksgiving I went on vacation and did not stay on program. I continued to stay off program throughout Thanksgiving. I gained 1.5 lbs. The Monday after Thanksgiving I started Phase 1 again. This is my 10th day of Phase 1. Of the 13 lbs lost only 2 lbs were lost in the last 10 days. The first time I did Phase 1 I lost 6 pounds. Is it normal for me to lose less the second time on Phase 1? Is my weight loss going to be slowed for this whole second time around in Phase 2 as well?

Any advice or previous experience stories would be much appreciated!

Personally, I do Phase 1 every once in a while for at least a few days to give my body a kick. However, I do notice that if I do too frequently, or for too long a period, the weight loss slows. My body starts to sense that it is being too deprived and goes into a starvation mode...conserving some of the energy for a time of deprivation.
Never be afraid to try something new.

Jodi, I think it's pretty common what you're experiencing. Initially, a fair bit of the weight loss on Phase I is water loss. So remember... this time around, you're probably REALLY losing fat!
Don't get discouraged.

I had a similar experience, did phase 1 went on holiday.. gained some weight and am now back on Phase 1. I have found that my weight loss is definitely slower this time, but I agreee that initially it was mostly fluids that I lost.

Keep up the great work and I am sure that you will receive the results you need.

Jodi, I think that's fairly common. Just stick with it!

I know for me I never have a big loss on phase one now. I would say your probably on the right track. Oh that first P-1 just spoils us I think! teehee But I love it! haha

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.

I started Phase I again on Monday. So far so good. I'm trying to remain very positive and remember that if the scale doesn't say what I want it to, not to be discouraged.
