Default Restaurant Challenges

tonight i went out to eat for david's birthday. i'd planned it for awhile, and i don't often eat out (besides subway, heh.)

it was an italian restaurant and i planned ahead: i'd already counted out how many tortellini's i was going to have (30) and everything according to calories.

i get a half order, and it was perfect, about 30 pieces. i had 1 slice of garlic bread with the meal, and i couldn't finish the plate!the "old" me would have pushed it, cuz it was sooooooooo good, but this me stopped and saved it.

we just got home and i feel really good about myself. i finally feel like i can handle restaurants and special occasions again.

Thats great! I still have trouble when I go out to eat, and so I try to stay away from restaraunts, I have a tendancy to overeat even if I am stuffed, if the food tastes really yummy.

Holly, That is really great! Congratulations!

My poor DH loves to eat out, but he knows that the only place I'll go right now is Applebee's because I know exactly what I can eat there. Half of a blackened chicken salad with no eggs and no dressing. The poor guy is dying to go out for Chinese Food or Mexican Food, but I just don't trust myself at those places yet.

Yay Holly!
It's planning ahead that is the key

MthrGoose- has the points for HUNDREDS of restaraunts if you are doing weight watchers - it also lists the calories/fat/fiber content.

Go Holly!

My 16th anniversary is today, and of course hubby wants to go to Red Lobster. I've been planning for DAYS on what to eat. I always make sure I know what's up 'cause the last time I went to a restaurant and thought I was eating healthy I ended up with a 32 point entree!
