So, one new challenge I’ve discovered is social gatherings. How do you tell someone that you’d love to try some of their super rich, double-delicious baked beans with bacon and ground beef made from their grandmothers treasured recipe, but they’re 24 points a serving and even ice cream (WAY more delicious) isn’t that many?! These social gatherings are even more challenging when it’s your in-laws… My strategy was to decide in advance the foods I could and couldn’t eat, load up my plate with fruit and then eat outside, away from temptation. This may not be a permanent solution, however, because you can apparently earn the reputation of being anti-social. Ah well, rookie dieter mistakes I guess.
On the up side, I still got to indulged in an Edy’s snack cup when I got home- I could just kiss those kind Edy’s folks. Off to church and then a sensible Fathers Day lunch.
