good luck Jill -- you will be fine as long as you plan out the meals... planning is key
I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so sick of all the crap I've been eating the past few weeks, I can't wait to get started!

I'm a bit disappointed. I did not lose 1 ounce since last week. I have followed the diet to a T, no cheating.... I did so well the first 2 weeks, I was hoping to lose at least 2 pounds this week but NOTHING. I did weigh myself in the middle of the week and had GAINED. At least today I am back to where I was at last week's weigh-in
Did anyone experience 0 weight loss for the 3rd week of priming? I'm worried about the cheat day and that I will gain back.......
This is NOT a good way to start my cheat day

I did lose a total of 13# in priming but it was all in the first 2 weeks..... I shouldn't complain just yet
OK on to cheat day!
I had a plain bagel toasted well done with plain cream cheese and an iced coffee with cream for breakfast.
I didn't eat anything until I got to my engagement party. I ate there, though!
We were there from around 1:30 - 7:30pm and during that time I managed to eat:
- several pieces of bread dipped in tuscan bean dip (amazingly good)
- veggies in roasted red pepper dip
- sesame breadstick (or two of them maybe...)
- sangria (i know, alcohol is a no-no but at least sangria is not 100% booze, it's mixed with some other stuff)
That was the appetizers...
Main dishes there was a buffet and I sampled
- roasted sweet potatoes with molasses (omg, yum)
- chicken marsala
- veal & peas
- tortellini with prosciutto and cream sauce
- salad with italian dressing
(I only had a little bit of each).
Then afterwards, CAKE!! YUM. Marble cake with buttercream icing. Oh and I had half an Italian cookie.
After I got home I opened one of my gifts and it was a very LARGE box of fancy schmancy handmade chocolates from L.A. Burdick... I did have a few of those too. I just HAD to. I wouldn't trust anyone who could resist these chocolates.
I put them in the fridge. I will eat a few next cheat day....
All in all I had a good cheat day .. next time it won't be a "party" day so I will hopefully eat more "food food" rather than sweets and desserts. I still am SO craving fish and chips..... next week!!
Best of luck to everyone else this week!!!

I've been pretty hungry today, I think it's just because I've been eating so much the past few weeks that my stomach needs to shrink back down. Hopefully tomorrow I won't be as hungry.
I've got a ways to go before my first cheat day!
