plate…half full or half empty

So, I have been banded for how long now? Over a year right? Why is that I still have issues eating out in public?

At home, I fix a small plate..no worries. Work, same thing…most people know I am banded so no one looks at me funny when there is this tiny little amount there. At restaurants, no biggie, it is all preportioned. But at buffet style lines…sigh. I always feel like I have to get a “normal” sized portion so I don’t become a spectacle but then feel horrible about throwing so much food away. I don’t mind sharing about the band, but don’t like advertising it to perfect strangers either.

Will I ever totally get to the point that I don’t care what other people think?!

    I do the same thing. LOL But, since I don’t like my food to touch, I usually end up using a LOT dishes at a buffet, even though I am not eating much.

Thoughts?
