I'm late to the party, but I'll echo Eric. A few days off track doesn't make or break you, it's what you do the other 90% of the days that matters. Go enjoy the party, be as sensible as you can.

Do your best to not over-indulge, but you'll feel worse if you don't have some of what you enjoy.

Just don't overdo it, and get back on track tomorrow!

Cutting down your proportions will help a lot, also if they have light beer then I would grab that instead of regular beer.

You said it was a hobby related event, is there any way to be active in it? Volunteer to be the person to walk or jog to go get something. Or start a active game like tag football if it is football related hobby. I am sure there is something you can to be more active and have less eating and drinking time if you look for it. Plus you can come off as the helpful

Apache, that is EXACTLY what I would do. If I put myself in your shoes, I would be miserable if I had to watch other people enjoying good stuff like "BEER", chips and other goodies. I would just eat and drink as slowly as possible, that way, you'll be cutting out a lot of calories by not eating as much. Have fun!

I have a big hobby related event this weekend where adult beverages and food is going to be plentiful and all I want to eat. Along with adult beverages, there will be bbq ribs, beer, bbq brisket, beer, chips and dip, beer, and some unhealthy deserts, and did I mention beer?
Looking for a healthier approach to an afternoon and eating that does not offer many healthy choices. Right now I'm leaning to eating what I want just not as much as I want, reducing serving sizes. May I ask your ideas?????

If you believe you can, or can not, either way you are correct.
