For the last twelve weeks I have been doing great. I've lost 29 pounds and am only two pounds away from my 10% goal! My husband has been doing his own diet because his work did a biggest loser competition. He's down 28 pounds and is now at his goal.
For the last week since he hit goal he's been eating fast food again, and today he talked me into going out to lunch. We went to Jimmy Johns and I got an "unwich". Instead of bread, they wrap the sandwich ingredients in lettuce. I thought that this would be a low point option, but it was still 12 points. I also got the BBQ Chips for 4 points. Later this afternoon stopped at a gas station. I got a granola bar because I thought that would be the best option. Wrong! It was 4 points. When I got home and logged my lunch I was shocked. 20 points... It was not worth 20 points... I wish I would have just done what I wanted to and made my own sandwich at home. Not only would it have been a whole lot cheaper, it would have been on plan. I was starving and let myself get talked into going out to eat.
I'm also a little annoyed with my husband. Just because he's at goal doesn't mean he can go out to eat all the time. How does he think he gained weight to begin with? And why did he talk me into going with him? He knows I still have a long way to go.
I learned that I can NEVER go out to eat without looking up point values first. I also know that the next 12 weeks probably won't be as easy as the last, since my husband thinks he can eat whatever he wants again. The worst part is that I used all my weekly points at a work party last night so I cannot be off plan today... I need to hit my goal on monday. Grrr!
Thanks for letting me vent... I'm going to go work out now to make up for some of the damage
