At my daughters engagement party, Instead of eating and drinking for 5 hours like everyone else was doing,
I just stayed away from the tempting food tables and helped with the bbq cooking of the sausages, steaks, calamari, and chicken shish kebabs instead.
In this time I only ate a little mexican layer dip.
I waited until the end, when the speeches were being done and had two small pieces of cake, and two flutes of champagne.
Many people kept coming to me saying to go eat some food, I was pretty hungry but I just told them I've already had some food thank you.
But the champas and cake and dip, still made me gain heaps of weight anyway.
