Diet soon to be in jeopardy...

I have been doing really well on my diet plan, counting calories and walking almost every day. Next month, however, my sister is coming for a ten day visit and already I am stressing out big time. She loves to go out & eat --- and to be honest, I love to go out and eat with her when she's around!

I'm afraid I'll undo all my good work. I need to put a workable plan into place before she gets here.

Anybody have any tips or suggestions on how to handle this?

You can suggest some places to eat that have a good selection of healthy meals on the menu.

A couple splurges probably won't do too much harm. I bet you'll be a lot more active and out and about with your sister when she's there so you'll be burning more calories.

I agree with Jeans, you will likely be much more active than usual and that you should be mindful of eating well, but I wouldn't worry about it and let it cause you anxiety. I find when I get anxious about my eating, I tend to say, "Awww, forget it, I can't do it anyway" and the whole thing goes out the window. Just try and make healthier choices while she is visiting and everything will be fine!

My diet is in jeopardy every single day. Even after all this time, I still have to move from moment to moment and fight with myself to make the proper choices. As long as the good choices still outdo the bad, I feel like I am going in the right direction.

I thought about severely restricting calories the week before she gets here in order to cut myself some leeway, but now I'm thinking that may backfire bigtime.

Jeans and KatieMac, what you said about being more active makes sense. I hadn't thought about that, but you are right! If I can just stay away from FRENCH FRIES, I might get through this!
