Well, today was pretty good day for me considering the past several days. I found out I was invited to birthday party at the Burger King, so I planned my day around it. I am actually learning how to balance my calories. It is hard but I think I am getting hang off of it. I kept thinking what LLV wrote a while back about let it be part of your lifestyle and you can't ignore cheeseburger or pizza forever when we were at the Burger King, because my problem is once I eat junk foods, and fast foods I always let myself go and end up eating way more.
It actually felt good, knowing that it was within my calorie intake of the day, and I actually didn't overeat. I had the burger they bought ( they bought it before we got there), and didn't have cake. I decided to enjoy the burger but cut the cake. I feel really releaved that I didn't end up eating more than I should and ironically I feel very proud :carrot:

Good for you!

And I'm glad to know my advice has helped you. Because I truly believe in NON-deprivation.

I eat the occasional hamburger myself. But when I really want one at home, I sort of 'fake' it. I use the Boca or Morningstar Farms veggie burgers (which I really love) and the "veggie slices" soy cheese and make my own. Complete with lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup and mustard. I also love the Morningstar Farms chicken patties. I toss one in the toaster oven and get it all crispy and put it on a hamburger bun and it's like eating a deep-fried chicken sandwich without all the fat.

I also love making homemade "oven-baked" onion rings. Great stuff without all the fat of deep-frying!

Wow, that is great and congrats on not overdoing it. Sometimes that can be tough. I love Burger King fries. You have a good reason to be proud.
