I know you're avoiding eating out, but here are some tips if you have to:
-Just don't let them put the chips or bread on the table.
-Bean burritos are a low point option (high in fiber).
-If you are out for Italian, ask them for a small amount of pasta and a large portion of mixed vegetables (steamed if you can) either with tomato sauce or plain. I had a very restricted diet due to health issues and every time I asked for this, they accommodated with no problem (it's a low cost/high margin product for a restaurant so they are happy to comply). Ask for whole wheat pasta - you never know, they might have it.
-Soup and salad works if you are out for business as you can break both up and eat an appetizer and meal. Obviously, dressing on the side.
-I know you said you don't eat chicken. Do you eat sushi? That's a great low point option (DO NOT eat the edamame)

If you have been following the program, you should be down. The first week usually reflects the biggest loss. I think I lost 3 or 4 lbs my first week. After that, it will probably taper down to 1.5 to 2 lbs a week. Which is good, bcz that will turn out to be 6 - 10 lbs a month.
Just take it day by day. I'm so glad you like the program!

Sarah - I'm glad you made it over! I had a weekend where I ate lots of food BUT I have ot say I'm feeling good! You know at the meetings you don't have to say anything by the way - you can just sit in the back and listen to what people have to say. I''ve only been to the one meeting but they had some good tips. For example I learned about this website; http://www.hungry-girl.com - which seems pretty cool and has some good ideas dfor tasty low calorie (or point) food.
So today I went one point over my daily limit but I guess that's what the "flex points" are for. When I counted myself I was exactly at 22 (my daily point limit) BUT when I inputed it into the website it came out with one point more than I thought...
I have to say I'm very excited about doing this and finally losing some weight! I want to look beautiful and thin in my wedding dress!

I have the Calorie King book that I keep in my purse, but it doesn't have everything in it.
