This weekend was the first true test I've had since starting SP. My husband and I went to a housewarming party at his friend's new condo, and they put out tons of snacks. Since I'm a social eater, this type of situation could have been disasterous for me. Luckily, in addition to a cheese plate and chips, they also had grapes, and a veggie plate. When everyone was congregating around the food, I parked myself near the grapes, so if I felt tempted to graze, that was what I ate.
When I got home, I started to enter everything into Nutrition Tracker, cringing the whole time, while trying to be as honest as possible. I thought I went over my calories for sure. But....I didn't!
This was the first time I felt like weight loss was really possible for me. I went to a party, I didn't deprive myself, but was able to restrain myself from completely pigging out, and I made it work!
Here's hoping I can keep it up...
