    Hi all,
    Hope you don't mind me sharing, but I am feeling quietly pleased with myself.

    Had a big family party this afternoon and was determined not to break my 100% record, but also didn't want to deal with telling people, or answering questions about it.
    So, since it was a buffet lunch, I had a pack just before, then when it came to the lunch, my boyf ate a first plate quickly, slipped me his dirty plate with a few bits left on it, which I furtively played with for a while, then sat with a 'used' plate on my lap for the rest of the meal.

    Phew! No one noticed that I hadn't eaten a mouthful! I am so relieved and also pleased that I didn't have to miss out on seeing everyone for the sake of sticking to it 100%.
    Eventually I will tell people I suppose, but for now, and in front of so many of my friends and family, I just don't want to deal with it.

    So- I can reccommend the 'fake plate' tactic at such an event!
    ;)

    Ooo! Good trick! I've pulled a fake hangover before which explained why I couldn't drink or eat anything. I just said I couldn't stomach it! (That wouldn't really work in a work situation!)

    Cheers all! Combined with moving surreptitiously around the room, it worked a treat!
    fake hangover is also a good tactic, Lucky-star, thanks! i've already pulled out 'I'm on antibiotics and therefore not drinking' in the pub, but that one won't work for long!
