    HI All,

    I dont know what to do next Thursday. I work for a finance company and we have our team meeting. Can cope with that BUT one of the business managers is coming in (from a bank) and is taking everyone out for xmas dinner. I have pledged to myself that I am goingto do a full 4 weeks of sole source to take me to the 20th December. (in a bid to lose at least another stone without being interrupted!)

    I know I am not going to eat (this is me being strong) but how do I tell them? I would rather not go than sit there & watch them all eating & drinking (iykwim)

    Any tips anyone?

    Thanks in advance

    Donna

    Erm, I dunno, but just noticed you're local - shall I come and kidnap you? lol!

    Do you have to go to the meal? Can you claim you have a prior engagement? Do you have kids? Can you tell them it's your kid's school play or parents evening or something?

    How about you go to the team meeting--then get a headache? :D

    or feel sick...

    or get someone to phone you with an emergency

    so you miss the meal?

    Just a thought... saves all the explaining...

    I might do the 'oh i dont feel very well/i think ive got a migraine coming' route. They all know I am on the CD so I might just have a word and tell them that I am not eating and dont want to feel left out so aren't going lol

    Put it to them straight!

    Just be honest with them and say you are on a plan and cannot break from it, if they know you are doing CD they will understand. Go to the meeting but not for the meal.
    I have been in this position several times and given in as I didnt want to feel different which is why I am 2 stone heavier now, I wont do it anymore I am honest and say I am not prepared to break my plan, it usually is fine.
