"Eating Opportunities" Vs "Eating Excuses"

This Sparked Me!

How we look at those eating occasions that pop into our lives such as eating away from home or special occasions determines our success. Why not look at them as an "Eating Opportunity" to practice wise choices rather than making them an "Eating Excuse" to overindulge.

    You might at least try wine coolers with selzer water for a start.

    Here is my challenge. Actually has been my downfall!! I just moved back to Chicago where all my family and friends live. There are events everywhere and they all include unhealthy food and alcohol. I exercise hard 6 days a week but have only lost 3 pounds in 7 weeks because of the food and wine. I can't say no. And when I try my friends say " c'mon grab a glass." or "this is sooo great you need to try it!" Well, I feel like a party pooper if I don't and to be fair, I really like wine and food! What can I do to resist without offending friends?
