Hooray, double hooray, I managed to stay on track through the barbecue AND lost another pound today!
The barbecue invitation was for 4 PM, so I had a light lunch. However, there was nothing to eat until 7:30 unless you wanted oyster shooters, which I don't care for. I was really hungry by then, but kept thinking about logging Day 12 of my streak. Water was my "make do" until the barbecue was ready. It was great - ocean salmon fresh caught by my nephew, roast beef, and several salads, plus the baked beans I brought (western style, not sweet Boston style). Dessert was 3 types of pie, so I had a bite of each, by sharing with my daughter and grandson.
It was fun to visit with everyone, that's as good as dinner, when company is congenial. I got caught up on news about old friends, too.
The next best part besides realizing that I had managed to stick to my eating goal was this morning, getting on the scale at my regular time, discovering that I lost another pound. So 13 is my lucky number, as I have now lost 13 pounds. And I feel great!
