For some reason, today's society tends to revolve around events that include food. For example, do your friends always want to get together for dinner? When you go on an all day shopping trip with your closest pal, do you immediately stop at a nearby diner? Does going to a double feature at the movie theatre necessitate two trips to the snack bar? It's hard to tell your oldest friends that you don't want your life to center around food, especially when their lives do and yours used to.
Sometimes starting a diet means being careful who you hang out with. If you have friends who are supportive, explain to them that you want to see them, but would rather avoid events that involve food. Some people may take offense to this, especially if they have their own weight issues. Assure them you are not judging their lives, you are just making changes in your own life.
