Same thing here. On the one hand, it's nice to have the time and space to focus on the diet without a lot of pressure to deviate. On the other hand, I think it's then more challenging both for they and you to know how to re-insert yourself. For me, I've had to be proactive and invite myself in a sense. It's a little odd though because some friends do talk about my eating needs as if I may die without the right food. Which likely means I talked too much about it prior
I don't want that to be what I'm known as...the girl with the special diet. So, I'm working harder to stop talking about it so much but then just ordering the way I need to order. I think the eating thing was so much a focus for me that I over- shared with some people. But I'm hopeful I can turn it around. My advice...invite yourself along again and don't talk about the diet but order what you need to order - most restaurants have something that will work. Enjoy!
