I am not sure if I will be able to join social events when there is lots of sweets around. Yesterday at my mother in laws birthday party there was birthday cake, cheesecake, pound cake, fried chicken, rolls, pasta salad, rice, chips, juice and more and non of it I could have. I was ok for a while until I had to feed my 3 year old a piece of cake ughhh. It is so hard to resist something that is literally in your face. I felt like a recovering alcoholic at the bar. It was bad. I was proud of myself because I did not give in, but once I got home I became sad. I associate good times with good food and since I cant eat that stuff i did not have a great time. I guess I will be a emotional eater for the rest of my life regardless of how much weight I lose.
it will get easier. you have to carry fruit or your own snacks. show them how health you are. what your working toward. imagine how much exercise you will have to do to get rid of the calories from deep fried chicken...lol. but stay motivated. you can do it. stay with it fruit is a great snack that fits in your bag. sometimes I carry a sandwich cut in half 1097 days ago
