My company had a cookout today. One of the guys nudged me to go up and get seconds. Like he could not go until someone else did. Anyway I said nope I had my limit. Oh how I wanted to go back up. I could have eaten 2 or 3 more cheeseburgers but I stayed in my seat and made it through. I had a big meal anyway so it was not like I needed more. I had cheeseburger, hotdog, one serving of chips, a serving of potato salad and then one cookie for dessert. I still had most of my calories left for today so I could eat something and not feel like I blew it. I still have 200 calories left for a snack tonight when I get home. I am so happy. I ate like normal people do.

Good job howie! A few weeks ago, my company had a barbecue, I didn't go because after reading the menu, I knew nothing was really on my plan. I knew that a lot of things would've been ok, but I didn't feel it was worth it and it wasn't anything I wanted anyway. Anyway, I'm glad you were able to eat within your plan!

Ok, now Kimberlie, do you need to speak to someone about this curious obsession with bananas? It's been a long time since I was very um, banana-focused, but come to think of it, I brought one to work today as part of my mid-morning snack! :chin: Hm, I wonder if there's any significance to this..... I must give this some thought. Is a banana ever just a banana I wonder.

Seriously, Kimberlie, get some help....... ;)

You are no more innocent than I am, dearheart. But I have to agree that you look smashing in the shirt and tie. ::yummy::

I was so proud of him when he came home and told me how he'd eaten responsibly at that cookout. It'd be so easy to just keep going, but he stood strong! That's my man. :-)

Howie that is so awesome. Kudos on on the willpower. I probably would've went up for seconds if it was good food.

I'll also add that your wife looks great in her new pic as well. You 2 make a great couple.
