Sorry to have been MIA around here the last few days. Been weighing but have just been so busy I didn't have time to post. Catching up now...
Good to see so many of our November friends back again. These threads REALLY do help one get thru the holidays without going off kilter food-wise, don't they?
Toddy and Jakz, it's great to see you both again!
BC - Enjoy the theater part of that dinner theater! Too bad the menu isn't a bit more simpatico. Wise decision to eat ahead of time although if there's a salad at the start you can probably eat that, and if there is any sort of meat, you can probably "pick" at that unless it is totally smothered in sticky gravy that can't be pushed aside....and then there's always coffee.
Thank goodness that one thing we learn on this WOE is to make such gatherings all about being with friends
and enjoying the show
rather than about the stuffing our faces with food.
With holiday parties tho, I'm finding that since I now stay as far away from the buffet tables as I can, and I can no longer distract myself with a plate of food - I actually spend a lot more time meeting people and talking with them than I used to in my pre-LC days, so I enjoy parties MORE. Another side-benefit!
