Eating Out...

Saturday, March 28, 2015

I know and you know eating out is the American way of life! All the food that is offered is so tempting and sometimes it is cheaper for me (being single) to eat out and enjoy the company of others as it is also a social time for me. I am a Fast Food Junkie and this is where I run into problems with my weight. So now again (because I never give up), I am in control. Yes, I have gone to McD's twice for the Fish Fillet Sandwich. But, I had a Side Salad with Balsamic Dressing instead of French Fries. Well it was a killer, but the second time I ate this way, I was Ok with it. It is mind over matter and I know I have to eliminate the 'I want' thoughts in my mind and concentrate on the 'I need' thoughts for my body. Again, I am doing this lifestyle change to lower my sugar levels and it is working. For 27 days my AM sugar readings have been 100 or less. That is a huge drop from the 170+ it was before and I felt lousy most of the time. At home I eat lots of protein now with lots of veggies. I also eat Sugar Free Jello with Light Cool Whip for the sweet tooth. The Atkins Chocolate Shakes are still available for my snack and they also help with any cravings I might have. I plan to eat Salads when I go out to curb the high sugar level when eating Carbs. The one thing I have found when I do cut the Carbs is, I am not as hungry as I use to be and my personality and moods are more level. That is because of less sugar in my system. Less sugar, less cravings!!! I hope to keep up what I am doing, change my mental attitudes about food and lose the weight also. I know this is a slow process because of the Diabetic meds I am on - but time is my friend - time will heal me...

and, so it goes on my side of town...

    That is sooo true Morticia. The prices for meat has sky rocketed and even veggies. Many times a head of lettuce is over $2.00. Well, what is one to do - make sure one shop sales, I guess!!! Thanks for the visit...

    I find fast food to be problematic too. I don't understand how they can make it so cheap as I can't fix a meal at home for that a lot of times.
