Hi everyone,.

I just wanted to say that yesterday was day 4 of Medifast for me. I was out with my family at a festival and celebrating my mom's bday at the macaroni grill afterwards. other than the waiter thinking I was nuts for asking for my grilled chicken breast and veggies with nothing on them (he kept asking if I was sure I didn't want anything else), and of course passing on the delicious bread, and the chocolate birthday fudge cake, it wasn't too bad..

Ok, it was really tough. I was so hungry, we walked for 3 hours, and I was not eating like normal with the rest of the family (the kettle korn)!.

But I got home, and was able to eat 2 more Medifast meals, and I went to bed happy. holy cow, I am proud of myself for staying off plan. I was definitely fantasizing about nachos on the way home, and a hamburger. but now I know that I can make it through and it gives me confidence for the holiday season!!.

Anyone out there have good coping mechanisms for dealing with being in a social party setting? also, someone on the boards has a mantra that I used yesterday "nothing tastes as good as thin feels" and I want to say thank you to whoever posted that somewhere! you helped me a great deal yesterday!!!.

A great way to deal with food pushers or situations where you will be confronting "spontaneous eating" is to get in the habit of preplanning your food the day before. Commit to eating only what you have pre-planned for the day. If you not already on a team go to the ready, set, go challenge board and post with a team for support. Although we are midway through the current challenge, you can be a "cheerleader" (post, but not have your stats counted in the team standings). Green Team's chat for the day focusing on preplanning today..

When I know I will be out in a that to mean food....setting, I will take along a bar cut into 50 pieces, and munch on that while others eat passed appetizers or graze from the food tables. At receptions, I have gone to the bartenders, told them I am on a restricted diet, asked for a glass of ice with a cherry or orange or other fruit in it, and then quietly poured my Fruit Punch or Cran Mango drink into the glass. That way it looks like I am having a cocktail with everyone else, but am staying 100% on plan, AND having a meal at the same time so I do not get too hungry before dinner..

If I am out sightseeing or simply out for the day, I take along a bar cut into pieces and carry it in my purse in a plastic container and munch as I go along. That way I am never too hungry and looking for all the wrong foods..

And yes, you can cut a bar into that many (and record is 72)pieces. There are pictures of a Peanut Butter bar on My Page...

Ellen, thanks for the picture of the bar cut into pieces on your page. I wouldn't have believed it without seeing it! I didn't really see the point of cutting a bar up, figuring it would be about the same as just taking little bites. I will definitely be trying your idea although I don't expect to hit 50 the first time or two.

I read your blog, also. Your last post was in September, but please tell me that people are noticing your weight loss now. You look great! They would have to be blind not to..

Sunshine, you are doing AWESOME! And so brave going out to a restaurant after just starting the program. You made an awesome decision, and one that is changing your life forever. If you need any help, please email me, I would love to go on this journey with you. I like to keep a small business card size note in my wallet with my three reason why I am committed to my health and weight loss. I take it out when I need a little extra strength. Also, if you read my blog, I had an epifany about "the voice of truth".

Have a great weekend and again, let me know if I can help in any way.
