Argh. Family cookout's can suck
Dh made sure to tell the fam that we were on plan (they've all been on SB before). So we had grilled steak, chicken, salad, etc. It was afterward when talks turned to fresh baked chocolate chip cookies that I gently cried to myself. My brother-in-law also has weight issues. He lost a ton of weight doing Atkins, as did my my hubby. I'll never forget the year of pork-rind nachos....blech. Anyway, he should understood, as should my father-in-law who is morbidly obese. I HATE having to mediate when my dad-in-law is trying to talk my hubby into trying the pork..."No, thanks dad. I'm really full." "You can try a little pork can't you?!!" OMG!! Anyway, I came home and roasted squash in the oven since the fam had been watching the flippin Food network all evening...I was really craving something sweet--which made me worry that I had messed up somewhere. But I had lost another pound this morning. So I guess, it's ok. We've always had issues at family gatherings. We're going to have to formulate a plan, I guess. Happy Monday folks!!
