I'm going out to La Tasca with Gemma this evening, she's been my diet buddy for the last year and introduced me to MFP so I have a lot to thank her for. She doesn't use MFP any more but we still contantly talk about our eating habits and weight when we chat, and this evening I will be drinking Diet Coke during our meal out.
This would stun some of my friends. Sharon? Soft drink? Eh? Isn't she well or summat?
It dawned on me this morning that I have certain friends who encourage me to drink when I go out - not that they have to pour it down my throat with my arms held behind my back, you understand, but because the routine is that we meet up, order wine, drink cocktails, get tipsy, have a laugh and head home.
This evening I will eat loads, have a laugh, not get tipsy and still have had a wonderful evening. Why can't I do this with other friends...?
Just really saying hurrah to Gemma for understanding what I'm doing and why, and for supporting me in this. Good friends are hard to come by and I'm lucky to have her!
