my daughter sometimes gives me food and I pretend to eat it !! lol (usually pieces of fruit). Before the fast we would always sit together to eat dinner - so I still sit with her with my glass of water. She hasn't asked any questions. (phew)
We also go to my parents weekly for dinner and I told my mother that I was on a diet and was cutting out one meal a day. Dinner !! So that is how I have managed to get away with not going to their house..
I hate to lie but there is just no way I can tell them I haven't eaten for 30 days, they would probably send me to the hospital and put me on a drip !! lol
