Hi, had a couple events lately, the first one was my sister-in-law's 60th birthday, we went out for dinner on the night of her birthday to a hotel. I look at the menu and made reasonable choices for the meal. So much better than I would have before.
The next night we had a party for same person and had a roast meal. Three types of meat so I took one small piece of pork and lots of vegies. Birthday cake was a cheese cake, had a small piece and can honestly say I did not like it, too sickly. I had one piece of jelly slice, my all time favourite but I stopped at one and didn't miss eating more.
Not bad for a person who did not want to celebrate this, turned out she had these two plus a surprise party.
I also went out to a cousin's 80th birthday afternoon tea, the only thing I ate there was a small piece of birthday cake. Looked at the yummy cakes and thought "they looked nice' but they stayed were they were.
It is when I stop and think what I ate at these special occasions that I surprise myself with how far I have come. It is just a fact of life now, something you do everyday without thinking but with these events I can honestly say "wow'.
