Apparently a strategy can work!

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I know I won't always be so fortunate but I'm very excited to say that I managed to make a plan for date-night. I knew I would be eating pizza and so I tried to figure out what is the best way to deal with or prevent a weight gain on those date nights. There are several options.

1. Choose a healthy meal on date night ( I did not)

2. Choose healthy meals before the date dinner. I did this

3. Get some good exercise in ( I did this)

4. If you do eat off plan, keep in mind that you will try to portion control somewhat. At least eat until you are no longer hungry and not sick (I did this)

These are a few suggestions. I did my best to eat well prior to dinner. I went outside and raked leaves and cleaned the house. I went out for pizza and ate 2 pieces of pizza and a part of a praline shared with my husband. We went out for a walk that night. I did slip on the scale and no gain for the week. I had a weight loss! First time in a year! I'm so glad to see that!

    We have to be able to eat pizza! Great that you are raking and cleaning and burning calories at the same time!

    I used to use this same plan for pizza night and it worked for me too. I'm glad you were able to enjoy yourself and still lose weight. emoticon

    That's awesome! A little planning goes a long way! I had a similar experience this weekend going out to lunch with a friend. Planned to eat on target the rest of the day and exercise. Ended up having a loss as well. Congratulations on having fun and losing at the same time! :) emoticon
