This weekend I went on a little trip to the beach to hang out with the fam, and I knew I would be led into temptations of eating unhealthy if I didn’t pack along my Nutrisystem food. We did end up going out to dinner at Sizzler and I made sure I checked over all the calorie information, as well as what I shouldn’t and should stay away from there. Obviously the deep fried onion rings were a no-no at the salad bar area. So I decided to go with the unlimited salad and had everything that I could remotely think of as being healthy with about 2 tablespoons of ranch. For some reason they did not have light anything. I also ended up having grilled vegetables along with 1 Malibu chicken. Normally I would have ordered 2 before this diet, but I knew I needed to continuously control my portions in order to see results, plus, 1 of them was about 330 calories, so I figure adding in the salad and vegetables I am probably pushing around 500 or a little more for dinner. This was acceptable to me and was a much better option than putting in over a thousand calories a meal from a fast food restaurant. Have you seen their new menus with the calories listed beside them? Wow, that was a real eye opener for me. Now I know why I have gained 40lbs over the last 6 years.
The next day, we were all out shopping at the outlet mall and got a bit hungry, so we decided on the McMennamins there. I knew they would have options for me to eat without feeling guilty so I went ahead and tagged along. I ended up choosing the half turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, which had purple onions, a slice of Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce and a little bit of cranberry relish with a side salad. It was delish! I figured after getting home, my scale was going to read that I was a pound or two over, but I was wrong. I woke up to 1.6lbs loss for the week and I am thankful that my dedication to this has changed the way I think about food. I have the willpower to say no to greasy pepperoni pizza, even though it may be cheaper or taste better, but I will not sacrifice my body anymore to indulge in high calorie, bad food.
