Glad your party went well, and yeah, I would be wondering about the lack of credits.
I don't expect to be 100% pure over the holidays. What I am going to do is try to keep my cheating very, very small, just enough to feel like I'm celebrating and not enough to get sick. That will probably mean something sweet but wheat-free. So my strategy will be to look around and find out what my cheat is going to be, and pass on everything else. Chances are I will overeat on the good stuff, but I'll just eat less the other days. Not trying to follow rules here, just to be good to myself in ways that won't make me miserable.
This might sound nasty, but if I end up at a meal or a restaurant where there's nothing I can eat, I just won't. And I will cheerfully explain that being fat-adapted means that it is not a great hardship for me. And then I'll watch them squirm.... LOL!
Sounds like an excellent plan, Tomi. And one day soon, you are going to find the key that will help you say no to the stuff at home too. Victories usually come one step at a time and you've already had a few. That will be next.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
