Yes, social eating is one of my biggest challenges. Potlucks are the worst. I overeat without even realizing it. Recently, though, I make sure to bring a healthy dish so that I know that I will have something healthy to nosh on.

It is, because it is anxiety producing to find healthy choices depending on the situation. Also, nervousness around people may affect your eating.

Yes!!

But you get to a point when you are so determined you don't care WHO you insult by not tasting/trying/sharing/ordering "THAT"!

Too bad it didn't happen decades ago! But bugging you to eat everything is hardwired into my dad's side of the family ...


Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal.

- Igor Stravinsky

Find a way.

I do if it is at a place that I cannot research first. Such as I have a Groupon to a small family owned German restaurant, so I keep pushing it to the side and not using it.

yeah, I find it hard. I think I have it in me to resist food, my problem is people trying to get me to eat more than I want or trying to get me to eat things that I need to avoid. These people know I am trying to lose weight. There are many times I have turned down an invitation because I know that it will be a struggle for me.

Yes. Fully agree. Social eating is a challenge for me becasue it involves food. Social or isolated, morining or night, sunny or cloudy, happy or depressed, if it involves food it is a challenge.

124/24: Otherwise... mostly irrelevant.

YES. It's probably my biggest challenge with eating healthy! I don't want to be that person who makes it hard to find a place or whines throughout the meal about the food. So I just eat whatever I want, which is always too much.
