Do I starve myself? No. I do make a point not to be starving upon arrival. Then I plan. One serving of this. One serving of that. No grazing. I was able to do this successfully this weekend. Instead of coke I had diet coke. Instead of grazing I planned for a heaping helping of one thing I really want. And no more. It worked! I did not have to avoid the party. I did not have to avoid food. Of course, having three kids helps. You don't have time to hang around and munch because at least one of them have to pee or need you to hold them or want to do something.
I got out and did a mini walk today. Nothing AP worthy though.
