I have 15 lbs. to lose (baby weight I've been carrying around for 6+ years), and I just finished P1 on 7/6. I lost 5.2 lbs., of which 4 lbs. came off the first week and the other 1.2 the second week. I've read what everyone's posted about it being mostly water weight and I've mentally prepared myself for the weight loss to slow, stall, or come back in P2. Thankfully, so far, I'm continuing to see the numbers go down on the scale.
What I'm loving most about SB is when I look back at the food I'm eating - It's so much healthier than I used to eat. I'm eating so many more veggies, beans, nuts and yogurt than I used to, plus I've introduced fruit this first week of P1. And I've had to make it through the temptations and difficult choices at birthday parties, 4th of July celebrations, eating out, and amusement parks. Being able to face those difficult situations and make healthy choices is helping me to transition my thinking from this being a diet to being a WOE/WOL.
Just wanted to share my results so far for the curious. This board has been crucial in my process for encouragement and information. Good luck to all those using SB to achieve healthier lives.
