Something happened last night that kind of surprised me. My mom said, "You are on a diet, I will not get that for you". Now to explain why that meant so much to me. My mom loves McDonalds and I have learned to love it as well. I have not eaten there since I started this diet. I started to country line dance with her which made me nervous because of dinner. We both have busy schedules and do not get the chance to eat dinner until we are done around 9:00/9:30. The easiest dinner is fast food. She mad
e it clear from day one that she would be stopping to get something to eat on our way home. I asked her to avoid fast food and she has. She stops at a pizza shop and gets a slice of pizza. Last night I asked if she could get me a slice as well and she responded with, "I thought you were going to have chicken when you got home, you are on a diet and pizza is not healthy." I was so thankful for that. It has gone from, "I'll pay for McDonalds if you go and get it" to "You don't need it, I will not help you skip out on your diet".
I can officially say that I have two people watching out for me and cheering me on! The more people watching out for me the easier it is. I feel bad eating what I'm not supposed to when someone else sees. Now I need to work on the days when no one is around.
This morning for breakfast I had 2 cookies and a few chips. The bright side, for lunch I plan on having chicken and some soup, not the pasta side, McDonalds, or easy mac and foot long meatball sub I would have had a few months ago. I also plan on doing at least 30 minutes of zumba on the wii instead of sitting on the couch and watching TV like I would have done a few months ago. I may not be perfect but I have made a lot of changes. I think baby steps are the best way for me to lose weight. Maybe then, for the first time once I lose it I wont gain it back with a vengeance.
