New Years Eve Pledge

Postby zeedeveelgirl » Sun Dec 31, 2006 11:07 am

I'm going to my friend's place for New Year's tonight, and every time I go over there for a party/get together she ALWAYS has terrible food set out for everyone to eat - lollies, chocolates, dips etc... and even though I've always eaten dinner beforehand and am not usually too hungry, I can never resist for some reason!? I think it's because everyone else is so comfortable eating it and they're all bigger sized people and they don't seem to care..
Last time I was there I had my hand stuck in the m&m's bowl for half the night!!! Another time it was marshmallows.

This time will be different. I'm prepared! I've gone out and bought watermelon, grapes, air-popped popcorn (Mother Earth brand) and Apero rice snacks. I'm going leave myself plenty of kilojoules so that if I have to nibble at something, I will try to stick to the foods that I brought.

Wish me luck, this is going to be an extremely tough challenge!!!!

Em

Woah, I did it!!!!
I stuck to my fruit, popcorn and Apero crackers (which are sooo yummy!!!) and I also had some of this cous cous salad (cous cous, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, spanish onion, chillies - YUM!) that someone made.

I resisted marshmallows, chips, lollies, oatmeal & raisin cookies (made by an American lady, apparently they were 'censored cookies', they were that god!!!), and get this - an "Ice Magic" fondue with strawberry/vanilla wafer biscuits.

And the best part? I didn't even want any of it!!! This is the first time I think I've gone out in a social situation since I started my weight loss and not been sitting there the whole time thinking to myself "I want that. No, you can't have that. But I want itttt... Okay, just one. One won't hurt.. Okay, grab a handful, go on. Oh god, I just ate 3 handfuls of M&Ms. I'm going to pay for this one". Hahah, that's seriously how it usually goes!!!

Oh hang on, that wasn't the best part of the evening... I met a very nice guy :D :D *does a dance*

Enough of my babbling :P
