Maybe it will help you to look at "dieting" differently: Healthier.
Do you go to Olive Garden every week and pig out on breadsticks? If not, look at this for what it is. A treat. A special occasion. Dinner before your daughter's prom - an once in a lifetime event, unless she repeats 12th grade 14 times.....
Go and have a good time. Eat a few breadsticks, if that is your thing. How many do you plan on eating? 5? And? Will you somehow die if you eat let's say 5 breadsticks? Will you have to be rushed to the ER over this?
You do not need prayers to get through one special meal - what you need to do is make wise choices (or not, even....) by looking at the menu beforehand....but what you need to really do is have a good time!!!
You do not ever want to live a lifestyle (and this is what this is) where you get unhinged over being invited to a wedding reception, or thanksgiving dinner, or a Bar Mitvah (sp?), or an anniversary party. These things occur in life - and what you do for each, is....have a good time and celebrate why you are there, and the good company you are with, and the good food, too!
I dunno, that's how I look at life.
The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
