Thanks everyone for all the responses. The kids all left back to college, won't see them till Christmas :'( but I have to say I didn't do as bad as I thought except for one day, being out and about was the difficult part here in FL if you don't carry a cooler in your car than everything melts and gets hot (water, fruit, veggies & protein bars - messy) I did try to cook almost all our meals when possible and I did use a salad plate and made sure I logged everything I ate (even if I didn't want). Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I have been snacking veggies while cooking. It helps when I'm making something that is easy to overeat for me. Measure carefully, and you'll be OK :) You can also probably sneak veggies into sauces without them realizing it. I added pureed carrots to my spaghetti sauce and everyone raved about it LOL Mwaa haaa haaa....

You can have a small portion. Pick a smaller plate make it fancy and special. Serve everyone from the stove and have a side salad. You will have some and feel in control. Good Luck to you. When I did this it gave me power over food. It was a mind turner for for once I was in control.

Moderation is key, you can have Macaroni & Cheese with Chocolate Fudge cake as long as it is a smaller portion and stays within your calorie goals
