I went to a friend’s 50th Birthday party tonight. It was a lot of fun. There were lots of great people, there was music, and delicious food and drinks, You may be wondering, “So, how does one go to parties and still lose weight?” Strategize!
If you read my blog, then you know, I am a Weight Watchers. member, and here is how I handled today. I ate very intentionally – I kept my points lower during the day and saved up for the party. Once I got there I had to make some choices. I decided to have a half slice of cake instead of a drink. Could I have had both? Yes, having both is an option. For me, for today, I didn’t want to have both. I was good having one or the other.
Later in the evening, a friend asked me, “How do you keep your motivation to stick with it?” My answer, “I know my why. I want to get goal more than I want a drink and a half-slice of birthday cake. Plus, why shouldn’t I live my life in the body I want?” I don’t feel as though I missed anything by exercising my control during the party. I feel like I was making good choices for myself. That is a very good way to feel!
