After a taste of red meat, Mandy started having second thoughts about the program. 

Sep 20, 2010

Discovering the lives of others makes us learn about what we can do to improve our own lives, or simply appreciate our lives even more.

I am starting to get to know the others, and it is helping me through the workouts. The support team and camaraderie they offer helps me to become even more invested in this program. Everyone is excited and wants each other to lose the weight.

I am an "All or Nothing" kind of gal. Brunch was great, I ate oysters, shrimp, crab legs, salad. The only thing I stretched on was the rack of lamb and mint jelly. That was my first red meat since I started, and since I am a meat lover, that was delicious. That night I had second thoughts about going back on the program. A negative moment came over my usually positive mind, and I thought that the hours of commitment, the workouts, and the lack of food was not something I wanted to experience anymore. I looked for support in my decision to stop from my husband but he said, "You will be ok."

The next morning I woke up, and I was back on track.
