Lynette those are great tips to stay away from tempting treats…I always try to have something on hand in my purse that I can have instead of the things that I shouldn’t. My tip in these situations is to find that one thing that looks the best and get a small sliver of it so you can have the taste of it and be done with it…the rest of the time order a sparkling water and carry it around and sip on it for the duration of the evening. I even do wine on occasion…tread carefully with alcohol though, I retain water like crazy when I drink…so one glass to sip for the night is enough to feel like a treat to me!
Social eating is one of the trickiest of lifestyle…however remember that what you do 80-90% of the time is far more important!
