OK! Well I am from a small town in Oklahoma, but I have moved to North Dallas almost 2 years ago. I noticed last time I went up for a family visit it wasn't as easy to eat healthy. It wasn't because it was easy to cheat since I was on a "minivacation." It was because there is NO healthy places to eat. Everything is like greasy-home-country cookin'! No wonder I am over weight lol. Oh yeah and it doesn't help that my mother never has groceries lol! So I'm constantly eating out when i'm there. And just to let ya know everyone usually knows everyone in this town and i'm not the one who really likes to bump into a lot of ppl I haven't seen in a while and chat up all day long about what i've been up to. I'm not a mean person lol there's just some ppl in the town i'd like to I try to stay away from family restaurants and just try to grab something fast. But the choices are like McD's and Burger King (oh how i love thee BK) it's basically your typically fast food junk stuff. But here in my new currect residency there's endless healthy possibililies for on the go healthy choices! Plus I always have a stocked pantry of healthy things to cook. So anyhoo...I'm leaving for Oklahoma this evening...I hope I can do better than i did on my last visit. I guess I will just buy some groceries and do what I can to stay away from fast food places. any other suggestions??

    If you going to a fast food place try to order something that looks somewhat healthy. Like chicken and salads, but watch out because sometimes they are loaded with calories. I would definately bring some go-to snacks with you, it would help out a lot!!

    When you come back just be fierce with your plan just in case your good intentions are ruined. It happens :)

    Buying your own groceries and healthy snacks is a good start. Good luck and have fun!!
