TL - tell them your on antibiotics and then no one will question your no drinking motives.

That's what I need...a bl00dy infection!

its perfectly acceptable not to drink.

if you tell them you're on antibiotics people will wonder what you've got!!!!

about 2 years ago i switched over to no alcohol at lunch meetings and minimal alcohol at evening meetings (except internal ones obviously!)

no-one batted an eyelid at it.

If I go without alc everyone gives me that raised eyebrow look and asks if I have something to tell them.

I tend to get irritated quickly when people give me "why aren't you drinking?" attitude. the down-the-pub-after-work culture can be pretty suffocating sometimes.

OK was really good (did help that said broker doesn't drink, which is a first for me).

Had fish for starter and main course and fruit for afters.

Wot the rest of you had then.

Had chicken (removed the skin) with veg and rice.

Can I keep the will power going...
I've put aside a bag of clothes which I can't wear at the moment (mainly shirts and t-shirts) as they're too tight. My motivation is to be able to wear them...oh and to stop looking as I'm preggers!

Wimps!

I had a chicken and ham salad with probably too much potato salad, but otherwise rather good :)

Lunch: off to Sainsburys again. chicken salsa wrap again (it was so good I decided to repeat) and a chicken breast sandwich.

Was very naughty and hit a Kit Kat though :(

Dinner, had grilled tuna steak and veggies. Majestic!

Drum roll, first public Thursday weigh in...

Spectacular weekly weight loss of (shudder) 0.2 lbs.

Not unexpected given week of eating out and general overindulgance. Next week looking for 2 lb loss!!!

P.S. Anyone watch Celebrity Fit Club? Can't believe Amy the Yank is on program... If she doesn't want to lose weight then why go on the show? "I love my shape" repeated every 2 minutes... Amy thou dost protest too much

She likes being the shape of a football?

All a load of rubbish.
15/01/2004 at 13:06
She might like it, actually. It can be a defence against allowing people to close (literally and emotionally).

Had another lunch of soup and salad and a run home from work tonight to an evening of fishcakes. Tomorrow I'm going to allow myself a few beers and a rest day. Back to the slog Saturday. Oooo the suspense of the Monday weigh-in is killing me. Also hoping for 2lbs per week (at least initially).
