Last night, I was getting ready to fix dinner, and was waiting on a call from my hubby to say he was heading home. He had to drive to a different location and was in a meeting. As it turned out, he was not going to make it home from the meeting in time to eat, change clothes, and get to basketball practice. (We coach my son's 5-6 year old team.) So I loaded the three kids up to meet at McDonald's for dinner.
I am HAPPY to report that we both ordered a Classic Grilled Chicken, no mayo. Instead of fries, (which I love) I ordered a Fruit & Yogurt Parfait. Wow, that felt so good.
It felt good to be tempted, and to make a good decision. I know that I could do it, but to actually go in there and make it work....well.....it felt nice.
AND....While we were eating, my husband and I looked at the nutritional information. Our old stand by meal, a #2 large, was 1100 calories!!!!!!! That doesn't include the large sweet tea with at least one refill that we normally have. (The tea was not even on the nutritional menu. I can't imagine how many calories with all that sugar!) WOWZA!!! I can't believe what I was doing to myself!!
So, I learned a lot last night. First, I can have fast food from time to time. Also, I don't need the garbage. I used to crave it, just like (I would assume) a smoker craves cigarettes. But now, I don't crave it anymore!! I really feel like I was addicted to that junk. A real fast foos addiction was what I was dealing with daily. I may always struggle with it, but I know that God made my body to crave the good stuff, the natural foods.
I feel delivered. I am so thankful to God for the heart change He is doing with in me! WOW!!
NO DIETING FOR ME!!!! LIFESTYLE CHANGES ALL THE WAY!!!
