Day 52: Going out to dinner

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

My 12 year old LOVES Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and the other chain restaurants with very large portions. LOL What helps me is to always have a salad before my entrée when eating out. I make sure that I eat the ENTIRE salad. Usually by now I am pretty full. Then I ask for "take home containers" once my meal arrives, and I divide my meal in half. So I have already cut the oversize meal in half. Then whatever isnt finished from my one half I pack in a separate box. I find that I was overeating for no reason. I would eat because I liked the taste. I was already stuffed and full! But, once I learned to slow down, I feel I have more control.
