    iv been planning my fiance's surprise birthday bbq for weeks and finally had it yesterday. it was my first real hurdle since starting LL, and i did it! i was thinking how hard id find it with all that lovely food and everyone drinking lots and so on, but i just had my sparkling water with ice in a wine glass and nibbled at my bar, and had just as much fun as everyone else!

    all my family were here who have not seen me since i started LL, so it was fantastic when one by one they finally asked me my secret, and the cat is very much out of the bag! everyone said im looking great, some said the best they have ever seen me, so im over the moon :bliss:
    now i just have my holiday for a week in blackpool to get through next month and il be fine xxxx

    Well done Sarah! I think it's things like this that keep you going during the times of temptation. Five days into me starting LL, I had a wedding to go to and after that all I thought to myself was, if I can manage a wedding I can manage anything. We had a family photo taken there by a photographer and I have it in a frame and I'm using it as my 'before' photo as won't be getting my photo done until tomorrow. You are doing great and the inspiring comments from all the guests will keep you going!! Well done :)
