my husband and I went to the Golden Corral (if not familiar this is a restaurant that has a homestyle buffet). I knew it was going to be a test for me but I went in with a positive attitude. While my husband was piling up on wings, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, etc. I got a nice salad full of veges with a small drizzle of fat free dressing. I then ate 1/2 small baked sweet potato, 1/2 roasted chicken thigh (no breast meat :(), steamed broccoli and carrots. Since I was being SO good I ate one small cookie. My husband walked out of their feeling terrible because he stuffed himself. I walked out feeling good with a bounce in my step. Bonus, Hubby now said he wants to diet with me because I've been doing so Great. I hope I can keep this up I'm trying SO HARD!!!!!!

WOW, that is crazy good. Now that is some willpower. It is one thing to see it written on a menu, but to have to walk by it, seeing it there for you, already cooked...Now that is something.

WTG. I bet you left there feeling like a million bucks. Good for you.

Thanks for your support everyone! I was just so shocked that I didn't cave in and go for the mac and cheese and pizza. What really amazes me is just how much better you FEEL making better food choices. I think me and hubby were proof. He complained of heartburn and being bloated. I actually walked out and didn't feel like I was going to pass out!

That is great! It's a great feeling when you realize when you and your health matters anything more than what's at the buffet. :smug:
