      Don't worry - everyone has those types of days! You can't stop your life to do this. I think an important thing to remember is that if you really do intend on eating this way forever then there has to be allowances for dinners out, a night of drinks here and there. Without that - how could we possibly expect ourselves to stick with it? I certainly couldn't!

      So you had a fun night out and some drinks - that's great! Now you're ready to eat properly again and that is also great! You are making a lifestyle choice instead of "dieting" - which in my (and many) peep's experience isn't so great for long term success. So for you...

        Thanks for the cheers of confidence!! Thats my theory too, if I sit and crave things for days and days then one day I am going to lose it and eat like such a hog. So moderation once again is key!

          I need some help not eating too much tonight! i am going to a friend's house to get together with some girlfriends. There's going to be wine and "take-out" which I am guessing means Italian. I am also supposed to go out for Italian tomorrow night with a friend who's in town AND I'm going wine tasting this weekend with yet another friend!

          So I think I need to make sure I do not use any of my flex points at dinner tonight OR tomorrow so I can save them for wine tasting and a delicious dinner in wine country!

          So I bought some food from Trader Joe's to bring with me. BUT the problem is once I get some wine in me and people are eating lots of delicious fatty foods I know I'm going to be super tempted! Part of me just wants to cancel and not go but considering the advice I gave above that just is stupid (not living my life in order to avoid tempting food...).

          Anyway my plan is to save points for the evening but also to eat my snack right before I arrive. I am hoping that by doing this I might be able to stave off temptation!

          Any words of advice? 'Cause I have to do it all over again tomorrow night!

          Ahhhhhhhh!

            oh kash, it's so hard to go out and be good! I know how I get when I have a few drinks.

            Alright, as far as the food goes what about looking for something that they have, that won't be horrible for you to eat, like salad or veggies. Or if you really feel you need to have some, maybe you could just take a really small portion, just to taste, not to fill up.

            Maybe just have one glass of wine to night and drink it slowly and savor it, then switch to water.

            I say do the same tomorrow.

            And then use your flex points this weekend.

            Don't undo your great loss from this week, you can do this!

            We're all going to have these tempting situations at times, so we've got to learn how to control ourselves. Good Luck!

              wanted to share two food ideas with you girls as well.

              I just tried kozy shack no sugar added rice pudding, its SO good, if you like rice pudding and it actually has 3 gms of fiber in it, making it 2 points!

              Also, if you don't receive the hungry girl emails yet, they rock! I absolutely love them, she gives you point values and great recipes, I've tried several.

              So I tried one of her recipes, its sort of like a cole slaw, anyway its really easy, you use:

              1 bag of broccoli slaw
              1/2 c of newmans own light sesame ginger dressing.

              Mix together and chill

              When I was shopping, I forgot that it was broccoli slaw, so I bought cole slaw instead (the bags with the veggies already cut)
              and it was just as good.

              you divide it into 4 servings and each one is 1 point

                Thanks Jilly! You are right - think the key is not drinking too much because all my resolve flies right out the window! And I think if I remind myself that I'm not really depriving myself - I'm just saving my points for wine and food thats actually WORTH it! Right?

                OK, maybe it'll help if I just say right now to the world (aka: you guys) what I will and will not eat tonight!

                2 glasses wine = 4 points
                Trader Joe's Salad = 3 points
                Trader Joe's tuna Salad = 5 points

                Right now I have 16.5 points remaining but I'm going to eat egg white salad and wasa crackers for 4 points before I go...

                      Sorry, I've been out of town, and I just saw you asked about the detox, but I also see your wedding date is so close! Congratulations!

                      This detox came from when I worked for an ancupuncturist. He used the metagenics ultraclear detox. basically, you slowly cut out all foods until for 3 days your having a rice protein shake with greens, cruciferous veggies, and apples and pears. After, you slowly bring back rice, then beans, and then it's over. You can do a 10 day or 28 day. I don't know if I could last 28 days. Anyway, I think I'm doing it right before my wedding just because of the glowy skin, but I was out of town this week for work, and it was not a weight watchers worthy week.

                      Anyway, Rachel, not sure if you're still around, but congratulations to you!!

                      Stephanie
                      Steph and Ben - 6/8/08! We did it!
