    Yesterday, I went to a Christmas lunch party at my boyfriend's work. I wasn't expecting to get to eat anything, but they had bbq, so I just had brisket with no sauce.
    My boyfriend's coworkers, who I'm also friends with, said, "Awww, I'm sorry you can't have dessert."
    Me: "That's okay, I'd feel like crap if I ate it anyway."
    My boyfriend, who is very supportive, said: "Before you get too down on her diet, Cristina (coworker), you should know she had ribs for breakfast." I made them in my crockpot. Delicious. Thanks, PaleOMG!
    Cristina replied, "Oh, so you fatten up around Christmas too, just in a different way, right? *chuckle*"
    Me: "Haha, Actually, I've lost about 10 pounds in the past two weeks."

    Me: well; I got the menu for our Christmas Company Luncheon, and they are having a salad, a roasted chicken with veggies plate, and chef's choice dessert. "Let's go! I'll give my dessert to whoever wants it".
    Co-worker (looking at me like I'm crazy): "Awwww...go ahead [and eat it]. It's Christmas "

    Co worker: So, when the 30 days of your crazy diet is up, are you going to eat normal again?
    Me: No, I won't be integrating sugar, grains or dairy back into my diet because I don't miss them.
    Co worker: Oh, you're going to be one of those people?

    Me: I'm not drinking any alcohol for 30 days. I'll be sticking to the Paleo diet afterwards though and I think I can have the occasional glass of red wine.
    Mum: That's not so bad.
    2 hours later
    Mum: Let's have a glass of wine!
    Me: I can't drink alcohol Mum
    Mum: I thought you said you could drink wine?
    Me: Yeah after the 30 days.
    Mum: Oh...
    I have to laugh at my parents who've been "diary free" for around 2 years but never gave up chocolate and they've started eating cheese now. They drink soya milk/dairy free margarine instead of cow's milk and butter.

    My husband & I had dinner out with the family for his mum's 60th. Since we've well & truly finished out whole30 we decided to have a 'treat night', knowing we would still make better choices from the menu.
    The food was outstanding and we were verbally appreciating it, for his sister to say.. 'no wonder you're enjoying it you only get to eat once a week!'
    We eat amazing food for every meal! UGH.. the little digs here & there we copped them all night.

    coworker 1: "I just ate two donuts and here I am getting more food"
    coworker 2: "yeah but that's not Real food, it doesn't count"
    coworker 1: true. it's not filling. Wonder if they have pizza left?" (at the commisery)
    coworker 2: I'm getting a grinder, need some veggies" (veggies = 1 leaf lettuce, & maybe some tomato/green pepper smothered in spaghetti sauce)
    And then they both come back with pop, potato chips and candy. Nothing else.
