Thumbs up Sorry another happy post :)

So today I wanted to eat Chipotle so bad. For those of you who dont know what it is, its a organicish mexican place with massive burritos, salads and burrito bowls (burrito minus tortilla). I went onto the website to see how much the burrito or the burrito bowl i used to eat was. 1000 calories?????? OMG i almost died. The bowl had 220 less, but still after I saw that I ddnt want it. I dunno what happened to my way of thinking but i totally think about food differently. So I went to subway and had a salad for 230 calories vs 1000. So proud of myself. I rewarded myself with a bag of baked bbq chips 70 calories for half the bag and thats all I ate. the other half is for my snack later on

That's awesome. It amazes me to find out what the actual calories are for restaurant food.

Good for you!!

Good for you!

I went to Mo's today for lunch. (Chipolte is right across the street. Moe's is very similar) and I made sure I got the salad but hold the bowl and the chips. Dressing on the side, which I didn't eat half of, and no guac or sourcream. Based on their site, that is about 500-550 cals. More than I should have had, but I'll make it up at dinner tonight with just a salad.

I actually love Chipotle. I have it often enough that I just have "Chipotle Meal" entered in my on-line calorie tracker. I get the fajita bowl with steak, corn and tomato salsa, lettuce for some bulk, and I even get guacamole. No cheese. No sour cream if I get the guac. It's like 565 calories and makes a totally reasonable lunch or dinner. And it's DELICIOUS!

Good for you for resisting!

I love chipotle... But as I'm a picky eater, when I get a bowl it's actually less than 550 calories. Rice, barbacoa, fajita veggies, a little bit of hot salsa, lettuce, and cheese. I don't like things like beans, sour cream, or guacamole, so that's never been a problem for me.

I absolutely adore Chipotle and it is one of my frequent eating spots.

I used to go to Qdoba a lot (which is nearly exactly like Chipotle - before I knew about Chipotles) when I was heavy. My choice - loaded nachos. Chili, ground beef, cheese, guac, sour cream - the works. I thought I loved it.

I love what I order at Chipotle now. Just skipping the tortilla makes it so easy to get a reasonable portion. I get the chicken bol (no beans). I ask for extra pico, extra romaine. I get some of the extra hot sauce on the side and I split a side order of guac with my husband. It is DELICIOUS and about 500 calories (depending on how much guac I eat). (I don't get cheese/sour cream because lately too much dairy messes me up)

I don't feel deprived, and I don't feel like I made a second class choice! Chipotle, Panera and Subway are pretty much the only "fast food" I eat - it's not to have a few choices, not just Subway.

Great job resisting! I love Chipotle, there's one less than a mile from my office. I know how much fat/calories are in the food, so I, like you stay away from it. It's nice to have in a healthy way (as the other ladies have mentioned) every once in awhile.

CONGRATS!!

Another fan here, but I eat 1/3 of the bowl. No sour cream or guac for me either, and light on the cheese.

Sticker shock is what I call it. I still get it sometimes and that is a good thing. You are on track to hitting your goal and I look forward to reading more of your posts. The longer you are mindful the easier it will get. The easier calorie counting gets, the more weight you will lose. It is a positive loop.
