    Some of you may remember me saying I was going to a barbeque this evening. Well I went with my family but no-one else knew I was doing LT and I didn't really want them to know.

    As I suspected, there was no way of not eating so I duly filled my plate with a piece of chicken, a sausage and some pasta and cucumber!

    Before I had even sat down the sausage had gone (thanks son!) and my daughter helped herself to the pasta and cucumber. Finally my son had the chicken for me.

    Later I had a piece of toffee cheesecake which disappeared into son's hands!!!!

    I honestly wasn't tempted (although the cherry toms and fresh peppers looked good) I know I could have told them but with a sarky teenage boy and 3 of the 4 neighbours being obese themselves I just felt it was easier to not draw attention to my lack of eating.

    I just sat and sipped my water and managed 1.5L in the time.

    Daughters friend did looked confused when the food went to the children instead of in me but a quick explanation was all she needed.

    Coward? Yep, that's me, but one neighbour is as sarky as his son and I really could do without him ragging me about it for the next few years. (He still teases me for nearly burning down my kitchen and that was over 3 years ago!!!!!)

    Thanks Mini,

    I really wasn't interested in eating and I knew there was no way I'd risk my WI on Monday with food but I just didn't want to be the butt of their jokes all evening. Bless my wonderful children. They thought it was a right laugh and I must admit to being very amused by their not as subtle as it could have been attempts to clearing my plate!!!

    Well done San, it's easy not eating but for me it was the not letting on that was hard.

    I spent 10 mins earlier whisking up the doube cream into peaks so it could be spooned on the desserts. Didn't even want to lick my finger.

    Do you feel as buzzed as me now? It is such a great feeling knowing you have survived with ketosis intact! Lol!

    I cooked a BBQ for my family last night and didnt touch any of it !!!! The strange thing is though i still need to be in control of the food making I gain pleasure in cooking it and not eating. Nearly completed my first week on LP and feel pretty good first WI in tomorrow.
    Well done everyone and many thanks for the comfort and inspiration i get from here

    Hey, I have done this before as well. At a family celebration my brother cleaned my plate and yesterday at the wedding - my friends and family loved me for the extra wine (cousin), champagne (cousin), meals (friend) and desserts I passed onto them (pregnant sister inlaw was especially appreciative of the dessert!) lol

    Well done everyone who has had the willpower not to eat at barbeques, weddings, parties etc !
    I had to make excuses for not eating or drinking alcohol, e.g stomach upset, antibiotics , as I didn't tell ANY of my family or friends!

    thats amazing well done, i am sure i would have been tempted just a little, good for you.

    mind you - i was walking round pershore ealier, and all the signs and smells advertising sunday lunch were out, but it didn't interest me in the slightest. i said to keith, to be honest, i'd rather have a light salad if anything.

    i think after this, if we avoid the food that used to 'control' us before, we will be slim for life! :D:D:D:D:D
