Eating Out!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

We decided to take the girls to Buca Di beppo for dinner and Movie.... not a big deal except pasta seems to be a problem for me. So I got online and figured out what meal we were going to order "Chicken Carbanra" and what 1 serving was. It came to 720 Calories. So in order to be successful I then chose my Breakfast and Lunch to fit in with that number ... did my workout first thing in the morning 2:30am ( I had to work ) and when I got home we went to dinner around 3 and then to the movie.

I just wanted to report that I was successful .... it is the next day .. I feel great and I'm about to get on my treadmill. I have found eating out not to be a big deal .. a lot of places have a lower calorie menu and I have found a lot of things at a lot of places that I really enjoy! And if they dont have a low cal menu then from the very beginning I ask for a to go tray I split the meal in half and I eat the other half for lunch the next day!

    Great job! I did exactly the same as you when I was faced with eating out too! I had to travel for work a few weeks ago and they took us to a Buca, which I love but we don't have here, unfortunately they ordered for me so I didn't get to pick out a low cal food, but I just had small portions and tried to make the best of it.

    Way to go! I am going to be tested in the exact same way today when Steve and I go out to a movie and dinner. You're doing such a fantastic job...I'm so proud of you! It's situations like this that I read about in your blogs and I emulate, which makes me successful too! You are an inspiration! Love you!!!

2011 results

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Well 1 year ago I was sitting here at 240 pounds wondering if I ate right and exercised some of the time and didn't worry about the all or nothing ...would I even lose any weight? I am happy to say that I am now sitting her at 210 lbs and happy to say yes ... I spent less than half of my time really focused on losing weight and I was able to get off 30lbs ... not the 101 pounds that I lost in 2007 but, I think I've learned a lot more about maintenance and honestly I think maintaining is a lot harder then losing.

Now with that said my goal this year is to get down to 170 so that I will qualify for health discounts on my insurance ... we are having a contest at work for the highest % of weight loss over the next 14 weeks and the winner gets between $100.00-$1200.00 .. if I could win then my husband and I could go on a much needed cruise ... so for the next 14 weeks my goal is to eat 1200 calories each day and burn 350 calories each day exercising. And hopefully that will be enough to win the $1200.00 and lose 49 pounds. Once the contest is over on April 7th I plan to work on maintaining that weight through the rest of the spring and Summer. Sometime in mid October I will then work on losing the remaining 30lbs to finally reach my goal set back in 2006 when I started. emoticon

    I totally agree. I think losing weight is the easy part, keeping it off will be a lot harder. I am scared to death of that part!

You are awesome and good luck on winning that $1200, I know you can do it!!
