How does everyone deal with dieting and normal life? When most people get together these days it involves food and alchohol. For instance, tomorrow night is my sister -n- law and her fiance's rehearsal dinner and their ordering a bunch of pizzas at a local resturant. It's tough sometimes to put yourself in that kind of environment, but you don't want to isolate yourself. Having to deal with everyone's comments because your not eating what they are is frustrating and most people don't understand. How does everyone deal? Do you allow yourself a little cheat during special occasions or stick to your guns? I'm torn because of the results I'm seeing and don't want to ruin it.
