On Tuesday, I had an appointment out of town. I left early and did not eat breakfast and the appointment was scheduled during my normal lunch time. Because I was very hungry after the appointment, I stopped off at Popeye's for a two piece combo. Later in the evening when I begin to track my food intake for the day, I realized that the combo meal was over 900 calories. I was very disappointed that I had eaten all of those calories in one meal. I won't be doing that again! emoticon

    Just a suggestion, if you peel the skin off that chicken, you probably cut the calories in half. It sort of takes the fun out of Popeye's chicken, but it works.

For any spark people up north who read this, just be happy that Popeye's fried chicken is not one of your temptations.

    Don't beat yourself up over this one time event. We often learn the best lesson of life from our mistakes.

    I completely sympathize with that. I split a white chocolate cheesecake from Olive Garden with my dad once and found out that one piece has over 900 calories.

    Well atleast you learned something that will benefit you everytime you step out to eat. When I first started tracking almost everything I was eating was sooooo many calories and I didn't realize it. No wonder I reached 280lbs, I use to eat fast food all the time and thought oh it's just a meal. Yeah right it was equal to 3 meals a day sometimes. But luckily now we have the tools to help us pick and choose. I wish you the best on the rest of your journey and keep on sparking!!!
