NO weight loss on Phase 1!!!
Fri, 10-04-2013 - 2:56pm

I started Phase 1 on 9/23/13 and am now just a couple of days from finishing my two weeks.  I am doing South Beach again after having lost 70 pounds on it in 1998.  Of course, after allowing all the bad carbs back over the last 15 years, I have gained all of that back.  I am 55 years old and smack right in the middle of menopause and believe me, it was kicking my butt until I started my Bioidentical hormone cream...now I just have the occasional hot flash.  I am so disheartened and frustrated because even though I'm following the plan to the letter, I have not lost ONE pound.  Now, please tell me how I can go from eating fruit galore, bread, rice, and pasta out the whazoo to eating the Phase One plan to the letter and not lose even an ounce?  I don't know how long I can keep this up without cheating if I'm not going to see any results.  Who can offer their expert advice and give me some insight? Cry
