Then tonight we celebrated my sister in law's bday with teriyaki chicken and rice. My mother in law is so great, she cooked me my plain chicken and even threw in some veggies to be sautéed. They definitely helped. It was a little harder to pass on bye be cake and ice cream, but I am happily at home enjoying my cafe caramel shake.
Congrats to everyone who is staying 100% OP and keeping your health and body #1!
! You know, most of the time that stuff doesn't even bother me any more. It's like, yeah that might taste good but I'm not going to even try it. I love the way I feel staying OP too much.
And so sweet of your mother in law to be supportive - I find it so much easier to stay OP when the people around me understand what I am trying to do. And those who don't, well I just don't make plans with them that include meals and try to have an activity scheduled. Like, let's go to X museum or go try on clothes or something similar.
