hi! I did have a great time, and I ate an egg white scramble with a small pear before the party. At the party, I ate chicken and two bites(Ok three) of mango souffle. Fortunately, I did not get a bad 'eigh-in' I lost .7 lbs...too less, but way better than a + sign!!!
I'm thinking through the same thing for tomorrow. Literally just got off the phone with a my friend who is getting married on Saturday and she invited me to the bridal luncheon tomorrow, in addition to the rehearsal dinner which I am already attending.
Here's the thing about special occasions: they are special and, in my life, they are not all that frequent. Now, every Friday night is NOT a special occasion. But for a wedding? Yes, I am going to both and will eat small portions of what is served. I will have some of the champagne toast. And that will be all the alcohol I drink. I will not binge, I will not overeat, and I will use the "two bite" rule if I decide to have some dessert.
And then Monday, when I get back from my weekend away and weigh in, I will face whatever the scale tells me and move on, figuring it is worth whatever temporary gain I may face to enjoy the weekend with my friends and celebrate this happy occasion.

If you already have something planned/cooking for dinner at home, I would personallly eat before I go. Then you won't be starving and at the mercy of whatever they're serving. You'll be less likely to overeat, and can let yourself enjoy a little bit of your favorite things at the party. As for an explanation, I don't think there's anything wrong with the response, "Thank you, no. I ate just a little while ago. Great party though!"
that seems to be a superb idea, I did offer to pitch in, but she insisted it is all 'them' today. I guess they are too ecstatic. I presume two items would be home-made and few would be ordered from outside(take-away)
You need not tell anyone you are dieting...take a long a raw veggie tray with some dip or make a salad and bring it along...I don't know what they are having nor do you I assume, so a veggie tray is a nice way to say thanks for inviting us....or you can even say I thought I would pitch in a little....fill up on the veggies or salad and have small portions of whatever they are having....
Hey everyone! I have a small Q(help please) My friends daughter passed her high school with flying colours and they are throwing a party tonight. Its already 6:30pm here. Iam not sure if I should 'eat' my dinner and go, or eat there itself? Ofcourse there will be tempting snacks and food, but a. How do I make sure noone notices me not eating? b. As, I don't feel very comfortable talking about being on a diet, Iam not sure how to handle this situation. I will appreciate your help! Thanks!
