Yes it is amazing how those calories add up and that sounds like it was just one meal. I can see why/how many are used to eating 4000+ calories a day especially if they frequent the fast food places.
I always bring a snack bag when out shopping, so that way no eating out and no temptations.

Now you know. And next time, your kids don't get to decide where to eat. You're the parent, you get to decide.

Yep chalk it up to an experience learned, use it as one of your caloric cycling days and move on doing what ya do best. A rule of thumb.....eat no take out food and you will be fine. Pack almonds etc in your car for emergencies such as this...

beverages are so deceptive. That's a good reminder to others, although I'm sorry you had to learn the lesson for other people's benefit

Look upon it as a lesson learned.........and another reason for the need to lose some weight, our culture thrives on this kind of thing, and has for years and years, I'm 66, and I know what you are talking about.
Well my kids and I went grocery shopping.. they talked Mme into sonic.... I got my breakfast.....looked up the calories and OMG I almost cried... my Java chiller and crosonic was 1700 looks like tomorrow back to the grind stone
