It is typical to see a huge weight loss in week 1 and then for the body to adjust and have smaller, but hopefully consistent losses in the remaining weeks. This is exactly how I am responding to the diet. Luckily, it still puts me within reach of my goal of losing 20lbs by the end of the month. So another 3 lbs down this week!
I went out with a friend of mine this weekend to look at wedding dresses. She recently became engaged and is on the hunt for the "the dress". We stopped for lunch between boutiques and I had the seared tuna salad with dressing on the side. I was worried I would stall or gain, but neither happened. It was a small variation from the diet, but one that didn't cost me anything. I ended up losing another pound that day!
With my parents coming in town, I am still planning on sticking to the protocol as closely as possible. I know we will be going to out to eat, hopefully it will not effect my loss.
So moving on the week 4. I have another few pounds to lose before I make it to my first goal!!! This diet is strict but does allow you to think of food differently. It allows your body to reset and rid itself of the toxins found in prepared and processed foods. I am finding the diet easier to do this time around and am less tempted to cheat. Hopefully I can keep it up and when December rolls around be in the last phases!
