I don't eat the foods that I know I can't limit myself (cookies, brownies, etc). At gatherings, I tend to think "If I don't eat this now, there will be NONE left, so I must eat it because I'll never have it again!!". I try to remind myself that the world is not in a cookie shortage, and if I REEEEEALLY want to eat it, I can get it on the way home. How many times have I stopped on the way home? Not once.
I just continue to eat veggies, fruits, etc. Luckily, my friends tend to have a good spread of healthy options.
I'm also planning on eating really well earlier in the day so I can have a little leeway for this afternoon and evening. This morning I had an egg white scramble and veggies. I'll eat very light (lean protein and veggies), so I can enjoy a few drinks, some BBQ, and a few snacks this evening. I'm also going to play in the pool so I can burn off a few of those calories!
