glad that you are all well have a great weekend.

We first stopped at a pub, where everyone was eating nachos, potato skins, and every other type of fried appetizer you can think of. Everyone kept trying to force me to eat some, and I had to say no so many times. They also kept trying to get me to drink! I kept saying no, and two people actually bought me a drink, even though I said no. My BF had to drink them.

Then we went to the club, where we had bottle service and the alcohol was flowing like water. EVERYONE was trying to force me to drink, even though I had explained that I was on a strict diet and did not want to blow the past 5 weeks of hard work. Again, people would poor me drinks and hand them to me. I finally got so annoyed with everyone trying to pressure me and not respect my decision, that I had to leave.

What is everyone's obsession with drinking alcohol? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE me a glass of pinot grigio, but why do they feel the need to force it on other people. It was a really difficult night to get through, but I can proudly say that I was 100% OP. Needless to say, I will not put myself in that situation again until after I'm in maintenance.
What a fantastic victory! I'm so proud of you right now! I think we all need to be aware that human nature is "like that." Sad but true and go into situations like you did without crumbling to pier pressure. Great job. Great testimony!

I don't understand people when it comes to alcohol.

In the future, I suggest asking the bartender for a club soda with lime and have them put it in a tall glass. Maybe ask them to add some mint leaves so that it looks like a mojito. Tell people that you are drinking either a gin and tonic or a mojito... I would even suggest telling the bartender that you are on a special diet protocol that doesn't allow alcohol (because of the sugar), but would rather others not know. They'll think you're pregnant and hiding it, but who [email protected]?

I am numb. Yesterday AM was my "official" WI#11. I was beside myself to see that 201 on the scale, so happy knowing 199.5 was right around the corner! This morning I got on the scale (I weigh everyday and have done so since day 1) and I'll be d***, if the sucker didn't read 199.5. I have weighed myself no less than 10 times this morning with each reading at 199.5. My pattern has always been to drop on the weekend. At every WI, I have dropped at least one pound the next day......unusual but you haven't heard me complain. I was expecting my body to hold steady and hover at 200 for days.... give me one last fight. Is this real? Did I really DO it? OMG I am in ONEDERLAND So why am I so numb? And why am I petrified that someone is going to take this away from me? I haven't cried yet, but at some point that numbness is going to wear off and the tears of joy are gonna flow. I did it...I did it....OMG, I did it!

I feel for you jennylauren19. I was in a similar situation last night. My husband wanted to go out last night to a Mexican restaurant with friends because a local band was playing and we know the members. I said the last thing I want to do is go to that restaurant with all the chips, salsa, margaritas, and pretty much everything else I can't eat!!! But we went anyway. Mind you, we had already eaten before we went. We meet our friends there and the waiter comes and asks if we want chips and salsa and I speak up and say no and he proceeds to pout and say YES!!!! I could have killed him. Then when we ordered drinks and I got iced tea even the waiter made fun of me!!! Usually my DH is very supportive he just wasnt thinking last night. My friends are very supportive though. They know I'm doing this diet and don't push me at all. I stayed 100% OP again despite the circumstances! I admit at the time I feel a little sorry for myself but this morning I feel very proud of my self control!!!

Good job or leaving when they just wouldn't stop!!

Today is prep and cook day so I don't have to keep doing it each day--cut up veggies, fix proteins, fix puddings, whatever I can do within reason in advance. I also need to go to the grocery.....but school starts here on Tues so I need to do what I can to make this week go smooth!

I got 3 more boxes of food at my checkin last Thurs. Finally got some bars.

Soups work great for me to get rid of veggies (I confess, I don't like a lot of veggies, so I do soups and then a salad for most lunches--although I'm trying some of the recipes). Different puddings and plan to fix a bunch of those for the fridge to make "parfaits".

I am NOT bonding with the drinks. I esp need to find something else for breakfast when I go back in on Thurs--I need something substantial like the omlet--the yogurt drink just doesn't seem to last till lunch, and eating lettuce in the AM doesn't work. I know I can start eating a bar once a day (I can starting Monday) so that will help, but I may need to do that at lunch to speed that meal. Thoughts on what else will be good for breakfast? The crepes or pancakes are available now?

I did the pina colada last night for snack (blended it then put it in the freezer for an hour)--still don't know why it is supposed to be wonderful. Other drinks? Other drinks that would work for breakfast?

So far, I actually like the puddings and use extracts as needed to jazz them up. But I'm just now moving into the restricted foods, and also have hardly tried out any drinks so thoughts are appreciated. I will search through the FAQ as well.

Thanks as always--carrie
For breakfast during work days I enjoy the cereal with cinnamon, the oatmeal, the orange drink and the peach/mango.
If i have a drink for breakfast I personally feel that I need the pudding or soup for lunch to keep me full till dinner. Cappuccino would be good for breakfast too. keep an eye on it in the microwave though, it tends to rise and overflow if you don't watch it.

Hello everyone! I'm jumping back on board and thought no better way than to start posting in the daily thread again. It's been some months since I was on plan and I'm back to stay till the finish line. I've been off program basically since December of last year. Gained around 18 pounds back and have finally got me head together again. It feels wonderful even after just one day!

Looking forward to reading everyone's accomplishments which helps keep me in check.

Happy Saturday morning. Of course it looks like rain here since our fun day consisted of being outside all afternoon and night. Crossing my fingers it passes or just gets it our of it's system now before we go.

I had a pleasant surprise this morning....was down another pound and only 2.5 from my half way point!

I called up a friend last night who does hair and she fit me in this morning. I told her just lots of layers so it's not so heavy and boring since I'm growing it out but then I got caught up in pics on the internet and brought 3 shorter dos with me. Well, she talked me out of the short cut since we did that last time and thought the layers would look great so we just cut 2 inches and layered the crap out of it. I love it so far but I haven't actually tried to style it yet so we will see.

I had company all night so I wasn't able to look at the computer at all so I'm off to get caught up!

Have a great OP Saturday.
