Help! How do I survive a Christmas party?

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

I just found out today that I have to go to 2 Christmas parties next week--2 nights in a row. Both will be hosted at a pizza buffet restaurant and I am required to go to both.

Pizza is one of my weaknesses. I will be tempted to overeat when I'm there. I can't just take one piece and be good with that. At a buffet, I will (typically) take one of each kind offered and eat until I'm stuffed. That is why I avoid buffets like the plague!

Here are the only options I can think of:
1. There will be salad and chicken available. Eat only that. This option sounds the smartest, but I'm not sure I can avoid the pizza altogether. Plus I have to eat with this group and all of them will be eating pizza.

2. Eat dinner before showing up and only munch on a little food while I watch everyone else eat.

3. Forget counting calories, eat whatever I want, and just try not to eat past the full mark.

Anyone have any other ideas?
