Tonight my family and I are going to eat out at a Mexican restaurant. I will calmly and sanely sit there while they munch on chips and sip on margaritas, and I will enjoy my water with lemon. I will not feel bitter or resentful that everyone else gets to munch on hundreds of calories worth of chips and drink happiness-in-a-glass. I will happily wait for my entree to come and I will slowly savor the rich, deep flavors of chicken in mole sauce, refried beans, and rice. I will not devour this plate of food and then start reaching for leftovers from other plates.
This is how my evening at the restaurant will go. I will check in to let you know how I do!
