I have my rules that I live by for me. Overtime most have respected my rules for myself.
Food Pushers - "Here try this!", they cry.
Temptations - They abound at social gathering with so many options.
I do not impose my rules on others. I simply state what my rule is and change the conversation. I have been complimented by my fortitude, but now it is not fortitude, it is just what I do, like coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. It the law, so you stop. Simple, clear concise.
At a recent picnic, many munchies were available. I decided what I would have and the quantity. That was it. Sure more stuff was available, but no regrets, I made my choice, was satisfied with it at the time, and later even more satisfied that I did not over do and feel ill.
Went out for my fellowship meeting. (aka Happy Hour) I have a one drink rule and I savor that drink. I do not NEED another. If I am thirsty I can have water with a twist. An appetizer, usually I pass as the options are usually disappointing to me.
With having my rule or decision clearly defined. it makes it easier to enjoy and still stay on track.
