    I'm off out for a works do, first time I've been out in years, let alone since I've been doing LL!! Thing is I'm just wondering what drink to order at the bar as I don't want it to be completely obvious that I'm not normal like everyone else!!! LOL!

    What do you order when you go out??

    I always drink soda water.
    I take my drinks flavourings with me & add them to the water.

    Cherry, how do you add the flavourings without drawing attention to yourself?? I'd love to take my sunshine orange, but thought I might draw more than a few odd looks!

    If I'm sat down I just spoon it out of my bag which would either be on the floor or seat, or nip to the loo & do it.
    If people have had a few they ain't gonna notice anyway.

    The 'everything that goes in my mouth is cooked from scratch by me' diet. And it works well!
    If it's the first time you've been out in years, don't worry about having a few drinks... just don't drink excessively, and don't be making a habit of it! Or indulge in just one amazing drink, and have something calorie-free for the rest of the evening.
    Whatever you do, enjoy yourself!

    DQ - knowing my luck I'd be done for dealing!!! ;-)

    Sidewalk, I can't drink any alcohol at all as I'm on LL. Can't drink soft drinks either. But it's fine, as I'm going to be feeling great on Saturday morning hangover-less!!
