Lauren, DON'T DO IT!!! Seriously! If you cheat at all on Phase 1, you'll need to start over and it'll be as hard as it was in the beginning. Don't do that to yourself, girl!
You can play around fairly safely in Phase 2 without really messing up your weight loss and health, but doing it in Phase 1 is a total no-no.
You are SO close...I know you can do two more days!!!
And seriously, I was never a huge red wine fan at all before I went on SBD, but I've become one. Merlots are lovely!
Some of the SBDers here cheat with other alcohols from time to time and they might be able to give you some ideas when you get to Phase II, but please wait until then!
I get a diet coke/pepsi with lime when I got to Mexican bars, or sometimes I get a bottle of something exotic like a diet Vanilla Coke/pepsi, etc. so I feel like I'm getting something special.
But most of all, the thing I love is realizing that events like this are NOT about the food and drinks. It's being with friends, talking and enjoying each other's company. You'd be amazed at all we were missing while we were focused on food! At least, that's how I feel.
We're rooting for you, Lauren!
