It sounds like you learned a few lessons that it took me a bit longer to figure out.
The other thing that I learned in my previous attempts that has helped out a bunch this time is that for me planning is an absolute must. If I have my meal plan in place before the day begins, then I'm never put in a position of making a decision in a moment of weakness.
There usually isn't a Phase 1 meal plan thread, we just had a seperate one right now because there are so many chicks here that were doing a Phase 1 reboot all at the same time... If there isn't one you can go ahead and post in the other thread, there are usually some gals there in Phase 1, some in 1.5 (transition) and some in Phase 2.
