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!!!

Thank you sooooo much

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!"

I think that is a great idea, a fruit or veggie tray, and then just small portions of the healthiest things they have. (Or even everything, moderation is key after all) and you will be satisfied!!!

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....

Have fun!

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!

ps-tomorrow is also my weigh-in day!
