Hi congratulations, family gatherings can be tough, offer to bring something to share and make your needs known, you can say you have finally found a way to lose weight and you can't eat animal products and that includes oils and cheese. stick to your choice it is your life good luck

Congratulations on the wedding proposal! Sounds nice. :D Welcome to the team!

For family gatherings offer to bring a salad or just bring your own food. After three years of doing it for my own family events, my family now makes a special effort to cook for me.

I've been on the roller coaster trying to lose weight since I was 15 yrs old! My highest adult weight has reached 169 lbs. In November I found Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live and I am now a 90% Vegan. Dr Fuhrman refers to it as Nutritarian actually. I lost 8lbs in the first 8 days on this program so finally something that works! Now I have new motivation.... my wedding day. My fiance proposed on New Years Eve at midnight! :) We are getting married in May 2013 so I have a lot of time to reach my ultimate goal of 135. My biggest challenge is birthdays and holidays with my family. They all cook with butter and oil and cheese etc. I always leave the family events with an extra 3-6 lbs gained. It is frustrating when I am doing well and then I have start over again and again. My fiance is naturally thin and he likes to go out to dinner once a week. That is another challenge for the same obvious reasons. However, I have continued to lose weight and I am confident that with Dr. Fuhrman's plan I can continue to lose weight and reach my goal in time for the wedding.
