    You know- the longer I am on this journey, the less stressful social situations have become. Perhaps my habits truly have changed?! I like to balance my splurges with extra exercise. If we are on a vacation we usually do lots of active things and that seems to make me feel more relaxed about splurging. You said it best- it is all a part of living. P.S The s’mores looks a-mazing!!!!

      Jill–that’s great news! I feel the same way. I get less stressed about social situations because I know how to make good choices.

    Social events are always the hardest for me. Usually bec there are so many things I want to try. I try to do like you and just step away to check my honest hunger and what I REALLY want.

      I tend to get “eyes bigger than stomach” syndrome. I want to try everything!

    I have found that I am starting to respond to social situations like a ‘normal’ person would. I know that I will likely over indulge because of the occasion, but it is okay and I can get back into my normal eating the next day. Unlike in the past where it would send me in a days long binge and self loathing.

      Me too, Lori. I used to feel guilty about things I’d eat but now I’m more lax. I don’t usually feel guilty because I feel like it’s okay now. I exercise, I watch what I eat…a few days or events of splurging don’t undo everything.

    We made smores once this summer with those giant marshmellows.. they were hard to eat because of how big they were! Super messy, too.
