Yippee for Me!

So I just got back from an office BBQ, and I wanted to share how proud I was.

There were huge bins of Eggplant Parm, Hotdogs, Cheeseburgers, and BBQ Chicken Sandwiches.

I took my plate and filled it with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and two BBQ chicken breasts. I skipped the chips and the pasta / potato salads.

They had a bunch of Ben and Jerry's, oreos, oatmeal cookies, etc. I asked for half of a scoop of Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz (which I love) because I would have eaten as much as they would have given me. I ignored all of the other desserts because they are "generic" (i.e. Not really a TREAT like Ben and Jerry's)

I enjoyed the BBQ, but I don't feel sick (as I probably would have if I hadn't toughed it out). I actually feel quite satisifed.

Just wanted to share!
