My first WI was last Wednesday and I lost 6.8 lbs and 4.4 inches. This past week I had even more challenges as we are celebrating Mardi Gras in the city. I spent all day Sunday with family members and crowds along the parade route eating all the good things I would love to have. I stayed strong and stayed OP with the exception of 4 peanuts, lol. I also ate out twice this week and stuck to program with the exception of dressings for my salads which I gave into and had small amounts. I am hoping for another good week so I do not get discouraged. Has anyone else ever run into situations surrounded by food? What did you do to help?
