If you cant avoid eating out, order a kids meal. They have smaller portions and have more visible healthy options. Subway has yogurt and apple slices, Chick fil a has fruit cups and almost all have milk. If I am craving a burger, a kids meal will meet that craving without blowing my calorie count

To get my kids involved in their nutrition, I challenged my children, now 14,12 and 9 to see who could come up with the most nutritional meal. Each kid gets to cook one meal per week and we have an pride wall to show off the kids favorite recipes. We've done this for 10 years and the kids love choosing some of their meals.
ORDER A KIDS MEAL..today my co-workers ordered lunch from a local deli, i ordered a kids turkey and cheese on wheat with organic baby carrots instead of chips..300ish calories..& im really full..even if you go to mcdonalds & get a kids meal [not the big kids meal, the regular one] & get apple dippers & diet soda, you get your taste for mickey d's with WAY fewer calories..i dont recommend doing this often with fast food but every once in a while wont hurt..its all about good choices & moderation
Every year I use to say " I am going to lose weight." I would try and lose maybe 10 lbs. I would regain and would have to start over. I stopped myself dead in the tracks one day and told myself " You have not achieved your goal and year after year you do the same thing. The years pass and you still look the same. TIME WAITS FOR NO MAN! Get ON AND STAY ON. YOU WILL THEN SEE CHANGE!Losing another year without change is not I want,leaving unwanted pounds in the old year sounds better to ME.
a little exercise, meal change a day goes a long way. I AM NOT KIDDING!! IT HAPPENED TO ME.
