My husband and I celebrated our 37th anniversary on Friday and went to a local resort overnight. Of course this included eating out and I stepped away from my eating plan a bit. I thought I had been fairly good but I was apparently worse than expected. My recent steps forward were destroyed! This is in spite of the fact that I ordered a salad for dinner and only took a few bites of my husbands dessert. I did have a drink that I usually don't do. It is absolutely amazing how quickly the pounds can go on versus how slow they come off and dismaying because I have worked hard to get them off. Oh well, back to the plan. It is so much easier when I don't go anywhere and hunker down on the home front but that is not what we do since we are retired. I really have to find a way to ensure that events or trips do not waylay my progress. It seems that is my biggest problem. I can tell it will take some time to get this different way of life as a habit.

    Michelle is right. It is doubtful that you have undone everything with one dinner. Restaurant food is high in sodium. Just keep drinking water.

    Restaurant food always (even salads) are higher in sodium than we realize, and that can cause water retention (weight gain) that lasts a few days--Glad you are just right back on track--I would wait a few days and check weight again after you've had a chance to get rid of the extra water :) Life has (and often needs) indulgences along the way. You will figure out a way to make them part of your sustainable healthy life--keep that faith in yourself!
