Wink I'm going out for dinner tonight...

We're going to a "going away" party for a good friend tonight at a pub. I've been wondering for about a week what I could eat. I was not willing to make it a free or treat meal. So my wonderful husband phoned today and asked if we could get a take out menu. Well they don't do take out but when Jeff explained that his wife was on a limited (lol) menu plan they OFFERED to print me out a menu! He went and picked it up today for me

So tonight I'm having a Clubhouse sandwich on Rye. No mayo or butter. No bacon. Mustard, lettuce, tomato, grilled chicken. And a side green salad with Italian dressing on the side. It's about 440 calories. Just right for dinner!!!

You really are rockin' this weight loss thing! Congrats on planning ahead AND not being willing to use it as a free day. I've had a few too many free days and think your 63lbs of weightloss is a good testament to just sticking with the plan!!

Have a fun night!

PS your husband sounds like a very nice man!

Ohh, that sounds reallly good. Isn't it great when you can eat delicious things and it doesn't have to be a "free food" or OP? That was awesome of your hubby, and good job on the planning! ^^

That is so great that you were able to plan ahead like that - I sometimes go online before hand (if they have that option available) but I don't think I would have thought about getting a menu (very smart!). Your husband gets a big thumbs up too...

Your dinner sounds really good too!

Hope you really enjoy yourself this evening!

Have fun and enjoy your meal. It will be so much more pleasurable not having to worry about what to eat. There have been several times I have not planned ahead and ended up in a restaurant and freaked out over what to do. Good on ya and good on your supportive hubby!

That's great!

I spontaneously went out for Chinese food with a friend tonight - I have a hard time estimating calories for what I had so I'm pretty sure I overestimated a bit and still came under budget for the day. Doesn't it just feel great to be able to go out to eat and not be derailed?

Your husband gets a big thumbs up for his part, btw!

I'm back!

It was FUN time Me and six boys lol!

I ended up changing the "on rye" to sourdough before I left. I FORGOT that clubhouses come with 3 slices of bread! So I took the middle one out They also send my sandwich WITH mayo so I sent it back. It was soooo good though.

I had two cups of peppermint tea, two large glasses of ice water with lemon and one bite of my husbands pizza. No derailment here! It was awesome!

Good job. I always try to go online and find a menu before I go out. If I can't find one I just wing it by looking up calories of thing I know they have. I use http://www.calorieking.com/ for that. I'm glad your husband is trying to help you, that makes it nice to have support. A lot of times it backfires for us. We can be best helpers or best tempters at our house.

Good job staying on plan! I love that more and more restaurants have nutritional info online. It definitely helps me to have a game plan ahead of time. Otherwise, I get way too tempted browsing the menu.

You did awesome! Planning DOES pay off!

Is sourdough better than rye? Calorie wise, I mean...

It was a bit less calories than the rye. I SHOULD have had the rye but I have not had white bread in soooo long that it was my splurge to myself
