to your hour RM when at a party that serves food
(Joy - b_joy)
that you feel better when you do the plan, so make a deal
with yourself that a party is not going to stand in your way.
Either wait to start eating (even standing around talking
with the appetizers on your plate so you don't have to skip
them), or just spend the first part of the meal going and
helping in the kitchen or something.
to a buffet the other day which started with soup and went
on from there. I waited and just said I preferred to have
mine with the dinner. Nobody questioned it. Then I took some
of the first course things that I wanted badly and saved them
on the bread plate. Then when the main course came I told
myself "go" and started to eat. I got to dessert with 10 minutes
to spare. You CAN stick to the one hour limit! I know you
can do it and that you will feel better tomorrow morning if
you do. Good luck, and tell yourself you are worth it. The
plan is working for you, and you are the most important person
at that party.
