Hi guys! I really like this site. We can all talk and vent and get advice! Well, yesterday through Wednesday, I will be "somewhat" off the MRC diet (blue sheet). I lost 5 pounds but it's my birthday and so many wonderful people want to celebrate with me. Should I go back on the Yellow Wednesday or pick on the blue?? thanks for your input!

IMHO, learning to celebrate without food may be one of the best things you can do for yourself. I celebrated my birthday right after I began MRC and decided to give myself the gift of healthy eating. We've been treating ourselves for a long time - now it is a different kind of treat. Other than that, I don't think it matters which color sheet you go back to. If you do eat off plan for a couple of days, allow for weight gain due to carbs and salt. Drink lots of water and eat you other meals as you would.

Sorry if I'm no help! I've just learned the hard way toooo many times. When I'm at my goal weight, I'll be able to have a treat now and again for my birthday. For now, it's pedal to the metal!

I totally agree with Debi. I know that when I go off plan I feel really lousy, and when I stay OP in hard situations like that, I feel more proud of myself than ever.
However, I would say head back to the blue and stay motivated!

Today it was the Yellow plan, just to kick start my metabolism again. I was good, but not wonderful. Thanks for your advice!
