I stuck to my daily meal plan and left the BBQ alone all together.
I feel so much better now knowing I don't 'have' to eat what everyone else eats just because it's there or just because it's a holiday. I can enjoy the spirit of the holiday and the family without all that extra food.

Recovering from an eating disorder, I do not track or weigh, but I felt I did great. I had what I wanted most at a potluck, at a few more cookies than I first intended, but did not get stuffed at all and felt fine. I truly treat only selected days as holidays (as they were originally meant to be) so I expect to eat a bit more those days. I eat moderately the rest of the time. It certainly wasn't always this way!

I admit, I did not track what I ate. But, I was being mindful. I took just a bite or two of most things (more of the fresh strawberries & blueberries - yum!), and I was very active all day. Since I was hosting the BBQ, I had planned a lot of healthy choices (turkey burgers, fresh veggies, etc.) Gladly, the scale read the same number this morning as yesterday. I take that all as a win!

I was so worried about overeating that I underate. At the end of the day I had only consumed 653 calories. Boy did I get a lecture,promptly followed by a snack!

We had a very quiet day, no family around for a barbecue so we had a very normal day eating.
