I'm grilling turkey brats/italian sausage - so know I can have that, and will have plenty of cut up veggies I can munch on - but any tips on how to keep myself away from the other "stuff" - my old nemesis foods?
For me, planning exactly what I will have helps. I made it through a family reunion for a wedding, and was so obsessed with Phase 1 that I did not cheat, amazingly. I had planned every meal and that made the difference. Remembering that the things you may eat in the spur of the moment, are temporary pleasures. You can wait. It's worth it. The positive feedback on my progress from my family also helped.
Good luck and enjoy the visit!
