Leaving Party

#1
Well last time on LT I deliberately avoided ANY social situations as I thought it would make sticking to the diet that much harder. Last night was my close friend's leaving party and there was no way I could get out of it so I sucked it up and headed out anyway. I deliberately took my car so that there was no way I'd be tempted to drink and named myself Des for the evening. Sipping on bottles of water throughout the night I surprised myself by having a great time :) Nobody seemed to be getting wasted which is what I was worried about. People were just a bit tipsy and merry and very friendly! My favourite gay couple announced me the winner of the shoe competition (sparkly stilettos :)) and soooo many people complimented me on my dress and told me they wanted it!!

Purple tartan prom dress - Dresses - Womens clothing - Clearance - Debenhams

I went for that in the end...

I though I was one of those people that depended on alcohol to loosen up a bit and be more social but I'm pleased with myself for handling it well! Not going to make a habit out of it though lol

Aww, thanks people :) You're all so sweet! The dress was a steal - £60 reduced to £18! I hated it when I looked at it but my little ole granny made me try it on and it looked good and she bought it for me - bless :) Just goes to show we don't need a drink to have some fun - social situations with no alcohol are a little intimidating but we can do it kids!! xx

One of my friends managed to steal a photo. Normally I hate pics being taken as I'm really not photogenic and the camera is not my friend but this one is okay so I thought I'd share it :)
