It is hard for me to wrap my brain around the idea the I have lost 29 lbs in seven weeks! And yes I had one cheat meal in those seven weeks. My oldest and first to be married niece's wedding was on 11/6/10. I did not go overboard and got right back in the saddle the very next meal. And I do not regret that cheat one bit. We all had one heck of a party. I wish she could get married again so we could have another party!
From reading the board it sounds like a lot of people are having trouble with the holiday season. But, most of the time there is not one food out there that you will not be able to eat, once you get to phase 4. Not everyday and not always will we or should we eat whatever whenever.
There is a lot of knowledge in the Life After Phase 1 thread that gives me hope that I will be able to maintain once I reach my goal!
