When you are in the process of changing the way you eat, eventually you will need to figure out how to deal with social situations. This includes eating out at restaurants, lunch with friends, birthdays celebrations and holiday gatherings. I always make sure what I am about to eat is worth it.
Recently we had a birthday celebration at work. Instead of ice cream, they provided us with individual pudding cups and a little bag of chips. (I know, it sounds like we are in kindergarten and not a financial firm, but times are tough). I chose not to eat it. Today we ordered pizza. Instead of eating four slices, I was able to stop at two.
How have you learned to cope with social situations and the way you eat now?
