    I have a Christmas pudding hat, complete with mistletoe. I could wear that?

    You mention that you intend to look fabulous, for the wedding day, which means you're not fabulous right now but on your way right? So, how unfabulous are you?
    Myself, i'm about 94% fabulous.
    A few people here have said i'm 100% but they haven't even seen me!

    This looks lovely Crazy, i'd double up on the toms and the olives!
    Nice meal to have out in the garden, on a lovely hot summers evening, erm, well, we can provide the meal it's up to nature to do the rest!?

    Are you off the plonk? ...if you've ever been on it, that is.

    I'm not sure on the plonk situation...

    I do plonk (a bottle or so over the course of the weekend)

    But am aware a plonk free lifestyle will dramatically help my new healthy lifestyle.

    I just can't imagine Friday night without a large glass of wine (or three!)

    Any tips?

    Wine helps you have a great body (I should know). You obviously aren't drinking enough of it!

    Pick up an exotic juice drink (no added sugar and not from concentrate), imagine it's a alcoholic cocktail and drink til ya hearts content, have a glass of the proper stuff every other Friday!
    Easy, huh.

    ...or don't drink til the wedding, another little project.

    You can't eat these, you're a veggie!

    ...or is it just monster flavouring, not real monster?

    This depends on whether it is food that Monsters Munch or Monsters that you Munch on. Then you have to consider in the first case whether they are vegetarian or not.

    Calorie intake difference between being veggie (high fat cheese, other dairy and eggs) and being vegan is massive. Dd has been vegan a month, still eats like a horse in terms of quantity but has lost alot of weight, despite not needing to when she converted from veggie to vegan. Quite surprising to be honest.

    You never see a cow looking up, it's always got its face in the grass. Being vegan means you have to chomp and graze on snacks all day, wahooh!!

    How many weeks to go now @That-Crazy-Rat-Lady ?
    Almost fabulous?

    Only 7 weeks!

    Feeling really good!

    Have been eating mostly vegan meals - not really planning on - just lower in calories (no cheese sob!)

    Don't know if I've lost any weight (don't own scales!)

    But have been loving Yoga (getting up at 6am to fit my half hour in!)

    So feeling more trim - I'm convinced I look more toned but the useless husband to be says I look just the same!

    Regardless of what your clearly unobservant man says, you feel better, and a balanced vegan diet is very very healthy, that's the most important thing, being healthy and happy :)
