What do you say when your oldest, closest friend and her family want to try Buca di Beppo's for the first time when you're visiting them out of town, and you're on a low-carb diet?
You smile and say, "Sure!"
And then you don't give it another thought.
You eat your cheesy, carby dinner, and you enjoy it.
You eat your dessert that the husband's went back out into the frigid cold to pick up four hours later, and you enjoy that, too.
You don't eat until you feel sick.
You don't eat until you feel like you can't eat any more.
And you don't obsess about it. Too much.
Then you plan to get back on track tomorrow.
This, too, is a victory.
