Do you get self conscious about eating at a party?

I ALWAYS eat before a party. Between caring for the kids, my shellfish allergies and the fact that I get slightly awkward about eating with strangers, well, I do a Scarlett O'Hara almost every time we go out.

  • I eat less than usual when out because I'm a bird eater, I peck at everything first but when I find something I like I attach it.

  • Heck no. We just attended my husband's company Christmas party. I went to the dessert bar first and filled a plate then went to the dinner bar for food.

  • I used to get paranoid about eating at parties. I'm not sure why?? I do know I was at my ideal weight then. Now I eat up the chips and dips, cheese and crackers, cookies etc. and I don't care what you or anything else thinks;) The problem with this is that my ass really takes it hard over the holidays so I really need to get back in that paranoid mindset so I can maintain my ideal weight and not have a fat ass!
