moving into phase II

I have been busy posting on my photo blog with two new shoots. And my garden blog.  So I haven't been totally an inactive blogger lately.
I have to admit - I got weak.  I finally caved after 31 days of complete dedication to 500 calories.  I took a couple of days off.  Then I realized how stupid that was, I worked so hard to get where I was and why would I throw it all away to eat?  I crawled back up on the wagon, but those two days set me back a week!  I couldn't believe how adversely it effected me.  Then I got bummed and took one more day off.  Bill suggested maybe 30 days...25 pounds is enough for now.  I didn't break any records with my weight loss, but I did lose and I feel so much better.  I am still 7 pounds off my goal.  I'll get 'em next time.
Now I am doing 3 more days of 500 calories without the drops.  Then I start eating 1500 calories a day for 3 weeks, this is what is supposed to 'set point' my body and make it so I don't gain weight back.  The only rule I see about this portion of the diet is no starches or sugars.  I can finally have fats!  Cheese, avocados, milk, salad dressings, olive oil, just as long as I keep my intake under 1500 calories.  If more than 2 pounds adds itself on I can take a day and eat one serving of protein and an apple.
I would love to hear how others are doing on this program, I haven't set the bar too high!

My friend who is right on schedule with you, took July 4th off. She gained one pound, but her total loss is 25 pounds. She is so excited to be done with this cycle so she can work out. She's been walking, but not much else. I don't think she lost as much weight as she wanted to, but she feels like she got a good jump start. She is planning on doing a second cycle. Are you?

Congrats on your weight loss! That is totally awesome.
