One of the hardest things to do around family and when you are eating good.. It took my family a long time not to be a food pusher for me..

Great job!!!

emoticon This is a really inspiring post in a couple of ways. Congratulations to you for giving up the processed starches. I think you are so lucky to have a supportive family that changed the food plan for your grandmothers birthday to help you be successful and achieve your goal.

Congratulations on sticking to your goals while visiting your family; you wrote that they tend to be food pushers so this sounds to me like you had a HUGE NSV!!

Way to go! It's really hard to say no to certain foods, especially when you are around family and friends that aren't trying to follow the same nutrition goals as we are. That's awesome that your cousin was supportive of the hard work you are doing! About six days into my eating healther, I went to a banquet where the dessert was put in front of you before the meal began. They brought it when I was out of my seat. I sat through salad, dinner, speeches, award presentations, and dessert with a huge delicious looking piece of carrot cake sitting right in front of me. That's my favorite. I knew when I could go through that and not touch it that I was truly comitted. I applaud you for not caving into temptation as well!

For this month, I promised myself that I would give up all white breads and starches. I would still allow myself the occasional candy, but no bread type sweets such as pastries, or pop tarts, or fruit pies-NOTHING! I said no crackers, no pretzels, no chips, and no croissants-basically anything bread like that's not whole grain.
Today was my grandmother's birthday, and they had this REALLY delicious looking chocolate cake. I'm so proud that I'll never know what it tasted like because I didn't eat any! I only had one serving of ice cream-Neapolitan!
The best part is that we were originally going to have Pizza, but I told my cousin that I wasn't going to be eating it because of my goals, and so we actually switched the entire food plan around! We ended up having about 3 different salad options, chicken, and rolls. I managed to stick to my goal, and didn't eat the rolls or potato salad!
This is a big deal for me because this is the first time that I've ever been able to stick to my goals while visiting family. They tend to be food pushers.


Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
