Family reunions, temptations and Opti-shakes


Today is my second day of the Opti Fast and I was at a family reunion for 7 hours of the day.  I chugged down one shake, put the powder for another one in my purse and grabbed a vitamin water out the door.  I was about to enter a room full of people’s favorite dishes and enough desserts to create the witches’ house in Hansel and Gretel.

There was Lunch meat, meatballs, baked spaghetti, cheese cake, pumpkin pie etc…  all the things we food addicts love.  So how did I do?  I did great!  I drank a shake on the way and mixed up another one a few hours later in the legions kitchen.  After that sipped on my vitamin water like I was a baby nursing a bottle.  To avoid people noticing I was not eating I kept moving around the room to socialize with different people.    Only one person caught on, a kind cousin, and when she asked why I was not eating I confessed plans and my current liver diet.  She is kind and a supportive person.  She congratulated me and ask me what day the surgery was.

It was a nice visit with many family members.  Normally in crowds I am nervous because I feel like people are judging me and my fat buddy (the fat on my body) but here every one is kind and I do not get any odd vibes.  I have been part of this family for 5 years almost now and I married into it.  I think they would like me even if I had horns growing out of my head, they are all so nice.

I did also take pictures today.  I took picture for a before comparison in the future.  I am not ready to share them yet.  I will share then when I have something to compare them too I suppose.  I do not have any full body pictures besides the one taken today.  I hate them, seriously.   Whenever I see one I cringe and have to turn away.  It is literally unbearable to look at them.   When I see them, I cannot believe that is me.  Who is that girl?

PS:  I love Socks.  I might start a sock section.  It is getting very cold here in Ontario.  Tomorrow is a high of 48F 9C.  They only skinny part of me is my feet.  Seriously, I have long toes and skinny feet so they are always cold in winter.
