I think the hardest thing about watching your weight and watching everything you eat is trying to keep on track at social functions. My husband and I went to a wedding yesterday and at the reception, they had many appetizers and alcohol. I passed on the appetizers, I did have a couple glasses of white wine however, and then when the meal came, ate the salad, but passed on the bread, which I absolutely love. My husband had several of the appetizers and offered me some of his but I was able to skip them without really even wanting them. He told me I was really strong to pass these up but I said every time I want to eat more than I should, I think about how much work it took to wear the extra pounds off and I don't want to end up having to wear those pounds off again. It is definitely easier to eat at home because you can weigh your portions and make better choices...all in all, we had a great time at the wedding, and I saved room and calorie allowance for the dessert. emoticon

    emoticon I agree eating at home is much easier, however we have to continue to live our lives with all that comes with it....like weddings etc. Passing on the appetizers was an excellent, healthy choice that YOU made. I can take or leave bread, but I do have a friend who loves bread.....so I know how difficult it was to pass on this too....but YOU did it. YOU made yet another healthy choice. Congrats on a job well done. emoticon
