The BBQ I went to was at a friend's house... I was so excited because it was the first time I've seen her since high school. I made sure to eat something earlier in the day but by the time I got there, I was pretty hungry. I am SO proud of myself because all I ate was a cheeseburger, some Emily bites crab dip (that I made), a few pita chips, two slices of kielbasa and a Coke Zero! The fact that I was able to resist the temptation of more food was a major NSV for me!
After the BBQ, my husband and I went out to celebrate a friend's birthday!!! We went out to a bar... I had saved 14 points for this second celebration. I drank two glasses of wine and had two mozzarella sticks. Since I haven't been drinking a lot, I was feeling pretty good after two glasses... :-) I easily could have had more to drink but I chose to stick to my points.
My point is that I now realize I can enjoy life, I can celebrate events with friends, I can go to BBQ's and bars, and still stay on track.

I have another BBQ to attend today and I already know what I will be eating (thanks to asking the hostess what will be served) and I am back to Simply Filling. This weekend has shown me just how "in control" I am on this journey.
