Party Tomorrow

#2
good man! Food is part of it, but not the be all and end all of a party!

i have a wedding next weekend, and i know i wont be able to be 100% on SS/SS+, so i'm going to avoid carbs as much as possible but if my halo slips a little, then so be it!

Enjoy yourself Jim! Hope you manage to resist! :D

i have dedicated 20 weeks so far to this diet 100%, i have stuck through it on my leaving do, on holiday, birthdays, etc....! I've never let social events get in the way...and this time, if i have a dessert, or a sweet or some fruit, then i'm not going to beat myself up about it! But that doesnt give me the excuse to binge, more a chance to test my new knowledge! :D

Good call. For me, I've blipped twice in 14 weeks but I want to spend the least amount of time I can on the diet and get on with enjoying my life; *sensibly*. So I'm not going to ruin things and set myself back because it'll only add extra weeks to the other end...
 
#6
i keep adding longer to the diet myself becuase i keep changing my bloomin goal lol, so an additional week at the end isnt going to break my heart...after all, i've been fat for so long this is a small price to pay! lol :D

Yeah, I've just added an extra stone onto my goal myself (or taken away, I suppose). TBH I'm looking forward to moving up the plans though, some of the recipe ideas in the book look yummy and before CD I've never really cooked anything healthy before... :D

oh my Jim, you need to come to my house!
I have about a million healthy recipies! I buy WW/SW magazines and cut the recipies out and stick them in my books....i'm obsessed with ALL recipies though, not just healthy ones hence all the blubber! lol

i love googling for healthy recipies though! Its great fun! :D

Oh my god i'm a loser! lol :D

Healthy cooking is definately something I'm going to get into post-CD so a bunch of recipies is definately something I need :D

I enjoy cooking, it's just I'm a fan of:

macaroni cheese
lasagne
enchiladas
creamy bread and butter pudding
etc.
etc.
etc.
etc.
...

And big portions doesn't help...

There is nothing wrong with you still eating those foods Jim, just smaller portions and not all the time!
I am not planning on "dieting" forever, and know i will be able to one day have some apple crumble and custard....just not as much as i used to have, or as often!!!

Yep, that's the key! Pre-CD it'd be a meal like that every night, or a takeaway...

I was thinking about Christmas the other day (already...) we'll be going to one of our parent's for a meal, not sure which yet, but of course there will be a gigantic spread on. Which I'm still going to enjoy but it'll be one yorkshire instead of three, sensible amount of meat instead of half a pig and half a turkey, a little christmas pud and *no seconds of either*! Sensible...
