I'm just an inch taller than you
Ph1 was designed by Dr Agatson to be two weeks for a reason--- any longer than that is NOT healthy, and really does not speed up weight loss AT ALL. Phase 1 is mainly to get rid of carb cravings. Yes most people loose a good bit of weight in P1, but most of it is water weight, and by the end of 2 weeks you have lost all of that. Phase 2 is where the real weight loss begins!
I honestly don't know if it is possible to loose that many sizes in 5 months.... it's taken me 3+ years to go just from a 20+ (I wouldn't buy anything over size 20, but in reality I was probably a size 22 when I started) to 18, where I am currently.
I will say, though, that it probably depends a lot on a person's body type.
Hope that helps
