Dinner outing - stayed true to plan

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Last night We went out to celebrate the birthday of a very dear friend. I looked at the menu beforehand but it didn't really help me. As the waiters took food to the neighboring tables, I was in awe of the potion sizes and heavy sauces. While my friends ordered cream laden dishes. I ordered a salad which had apples, walnuts, greens, craisins & goat cheese. to that I added a jumbo lump crab cake, that had no fillers and was broiled. I couldn't even eat half the salad which I did not put dressing on.

So happy that I can go out and make healthy choices without feeling deprived. This morning I was down, but it's not my official weigh-in day, so have to wait til Tuesday. Should have some very good news then! It will be goodies for all my SP friends.

    I agree that restaurants are a challenge. That salad sounds yummy! I love goat cheese.

    Isn't it a triumphant feeling when you can go out and enjoy yourself and still eat in a way that will create the healthy beautiful body you're aiming for?


    Tuesday is my weigh in day too. I'll be thinking of you then.
