    Hello everyone

    Well I did it. We went to our friends wedding yesterday and I didn't eat or drink (except water!) A SINGLE THING!!!

    AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!!

    It would have been so easy to lapse, but I didn't and this is a real turning point for me. Social eating has always been a problem and now I know I CAN go out and not go mad.

    It got awkward at times as the waiters, bless them, offered me food all the time - but they soon got the message ''I had food poisoning''!!!

    It was worse in the evening and everyone else was soooo drunk and I was soooo sober, but at least I don't feel awful today like my fiance Rich does!!!

    Secondly, I hit 25 days of LL today - I'm a quarter of the way there!!!

    SO HAPPY!!!

    Wel done you! Taking control of food for me is the BEST bit of LL. I was so out of control before and being able to say no is a huge achievement as events like that are hard, esp when people "encourage" you with the numerous comments! So a huge well done for you! It will be over before you know it!

    It's great that you managed it. It will give others hope too, that they can go to a big social event and abstain.

    You have made your own journey just that bit easier (and quicker) too. A lot of people who do eat a bit at social events or holidays find that it takes longer to get to goal, and when you are doing LL, every extra week equals an extra £66!
