Hi Meeel- I agree you have to maintain some sense of normalcy and do not want to feel like a prisoner to your diet. Try to find out (if you don't already) where you are going and then plan in advance what you will eat. If you are tracking your food then you can plan it to fit in with your daily menu. Or have a snack before you leave so when you get to the restaurant you won't order something that you know you shouldn't because you are starving. Good luck!

I have to restart again as I slipped. I am leaving the above so I can keep track. It happens and I have to keep learning.
