When I first met Ed, he loved to go out for a meal and a few drinks. It was scarey how fast I pudged up with social eating. We rarely go out when I am dieting. Thats great for our wallets but we miss being sociable and seeing our friends while dining out .
Week in and week out I can eat sensibly. However all that careful calorie counting flies out the window during the holidays and during special occasions. The more active you are socially, the more holiday gatherings and special occasions your invited to. Hence perhaps the origin of "fat and happy".
I would love to learn strategies to avoid weight gain and still enjoy celebrating and being social with friends.
