I agree, chicken breast sounds better than McDonald's, but I'm not a big fan of McD's. WTG for resisting the urge, it always feels so good to resist the temptation and come out the winner!!! Keep it up!!

WTG I so know how it is to fight. I am that way when it comes to ordering pizza. When I have had a long day of Childcare then Ihave to turn and feed my own three girls.Cooking dinner is so not on my list. BUT I have been good and not giving in. KEEP it UP.

Good goin! Most of the time I agree with everyone else that the chicken sounds better than McD's, but once in awhile ya just get a craving for the greasy awful stuff! It gets better the longer you go, but fighting to get to that point is well worth it! So glad you fought it!

I wish I had said no to McDonalds yesterday. I have had a salad every day for lunch since March. EVERY day. Yesterday I decided I was going to be bad and have a Happy Meal for lunch and have the salad for dinner.

Let's just say the happy meal was not like I remembered it. The french fries tasted like LARD. The burger was mushy. I can't believe I used to actually like this stuff. That meal (what I ate of it) just rolled around in my stomach all afternoon making me ill. I won't go into details, but NEVER again.

It amazes me how after months of eating GOOD foods, the reaction your body has when you put something not so good in it.

I've been saying no to McDonald's for years--even my kids say no to it! Now if we could all begin saying no to Burger King and Del Taco our lives would be easier!!!! It's just a weekend thing. I don't know why, but we've always done fast food for lunch on weekends. It just kills my diet. I've tried to do the salads at BK, but they have no flavor--it's just regular lettuce and two tomatoes (plus the chicken). The salads at Del Taco are probably worse than the burritos (I usually get a quesadilla and fries--bad, bad choices!).
It could be worse, though. We could eat it more often. Throughout the week, we all eat very healthy meals because DD and DH and I all want to drop some weight. DS is in cooking camp and they make their lunch at camp each day and he is loving learning new ways to fix things (he's 11). He says he wants to make dinner for us next week!

i have recently learned the best deterrant for going to fast food is checking it out on Calorie King first - the cholesterol, sodium and calories - goodness!!!

You do it once ... and you know for a fact that you can do it again ... it's a great feeling ... a challenge ... keep it up!
