I decided the best thing to do is eat my breakfast like I normally do. I normally never do and like Dr. Phil says, "so how's that working for you?" I am going to eat an apple before I go and then I am going to drink lots of water with lemon and maybe a salad. I am going to tell her that my stomach is an issue. Really not a lie because my stomach is an issue!!! I do not want to hear how I need to eat something or you look fine! Thank you for your suggestions!

Lots of veggies, drink water with lemon, eat very slowly and enjoy your food. Make the bread whole grain, eat plain protein etc.

Remember to track whatever you put in your mouth.

I am not familiar with your food outlet (come from NZ) so won't comment on your choice of Restaurant. Instead I will congratulate you on being with SP a week :-) Just try to make the best choices you can, but remember, if you don't, it isn't the end of the world. We all do at times. You have only been on this journey a week, so really, it is a little soon to have made a ton of changes - you should be practicing Baby Steps, which means that you only change one or two things and allow your mind/body to get used to the changes before adding something else to the mix.

Another thing I will say is that you may be best to leave the scales for a wee while. A lot of people don't lose at all for a few weeks, and some even gain a little weight, but this doesn't mean that you are doing anything wrong. Instead focus more on your energy levels, the condition of your hair/skin, how you sleep, how your clothes fit, etc. etc. If you make wise choices re amount and type of food MOST of the time, and get some exercise in, then regardless of whether you lose weight or not, you are still doing a huge service to your body :-)

Take care, and enjoy your meal

Tomorrow is not only my first week on my new way of eating but the first time I have been on the scale since I started. That makes me nervous as it is but now add to that I am going out to Macayo's for lunch. Any suggestions on what to eat there that is healthy? I know no alcohol, I know no chips and also no fried anything but what? I appreciate any help I can get
