Going up......😱

Hubby is 70 on Sun. In this house ,birthdays go on for days...... .Just started with a relatively low key,old habit barbecue for us.Sit tight -you'll be horrified .A few lamb cutlets (I had the smallest) ,a slice of duck breast ( no skin ,probably about 4ozs cooked weight) ,one Aldi Guinness sausage ( to die for !) and a small, low fat turkey patty. Oh -and a Med quinoa salad with fresh roasted veg and 2ozs of crumbled feta.

All in all -a MASSIVE cheat .

I feel like I have eaten at least a whole small sheep.

Meat protein at this level is a real shock after being largely veggie for a long time .

Delicious of course -but don't think I could do an Atkins any time soon.

Maybe my eating habits are slowly changing at last?

Chinese Dim Sum and cocktails tomorrow .Sigh .

Pulled pork on Sat & Spanish tapas on Sunday.

Not a cat in hell's chance of surviving unscathed .... but the test is getting back on the wagon.

Wish me luck !

Hi Cymrawes

The most important thing, I think, is that you enjoy your family celebration.🎂🎉

With a 3 stone badge next to your name you must be doing g something right and able to get back on track when needed. I don't think you need luck, you've got it sussed.

Enjoy 😁

PS--glad you mentioned the Aldi sausage, I was looking and wondering earlier this week

Sounds like a great way to party and going into this with your eyes open probably means you will get back on the wagon pretty quickly.

Have a great celebration, your food sounds fabulous.
