Compliments, compliments, compliments...

You have got to love it when people start to notice your weight loss.

On Saturday I went to my friend’s parent’s 40th wedding anniversary - I have known her parents since we were kids.

A number of people at the party I have not seen for a few months all commented on my weight loss - told me how great I was looking....I was feeling very pleased with me.

A few people at work have also started to comment - one girl (who I am very good friends with) even said that it looked it is dropping off me now (she has listen to me complain for years!!).

My friend asked if a couple of us could assist with the preparation and serving of the food for the night (so the oldies could sit back enjoy themselves). I decided before I went that this was not going to be a problem for me, I control the food and I will chose what I want eat with careful consideration (I did eat prior to arriving to ensure that I was not starving). There was some really great food - I stayed well clear of most of it except 2 x paper rolls and this little gourmet savoury cake (very small but very nice..). I also chose not have any desert as the though of the amount of exercise I would need to do to burn it off was just not worth it...

The food was really good but I really was not tempted by any of it – normally when I am at these types of events I struggle with the food all the night and I end up feeling quite deprived and a bit angry that I can't just merrily eat away like everyone else. When the next day arrives I am generally still feeling quite ripped off about the food and I generally crumble…and start eating..

On Saturday night I really just did not want to eat any of it – it was not a struggle - the compliments I was receiving about how good I was looking were far better than any little pastry there....

  1. Aren't those compliments great?! I've not had too many yet, but it feels SO good when they come.

    Glad you had a good time and stayed in control!
