Yesterday, I went out to happy hour with my coworkers, and figured that the best way to stay on track was to stick to diet soda.
I know it would be much easier to just confine myself to my home or the gym and completely control all my food and drink. However, I love to hang out with others and have a good time. Losing weight is just one part of me getting happy. Having other people to share the good times with would make me even happier :)
So off to happy hour I went.
The bar we went to gives free refills for sodas, which is great, because I could have as much as I wanted. On the other hand, they also do 2 for 1 drinks at happy hour, so people are constantly, CONSTANTLY, offering you drinks !
When my colleagues noticed that I was drinking a soda, the offers began. The more I said I was fine with my drink, the more alcohol they offered me. I resorted to distracting them with stories, shifting the focus to arriving colleagues, disappearing to other groups when their eyes were averted and excusing myself to go to the bathroom when they got too insistent.
I made it, and I still had a great time. And there was no uptick in the scale this morning.
