Say no to the extras. Say "no thank you" to the extra cheese, butter, and sour cream.
I went to lunch with my mother and teenage brother, and we went to a local diner. Not the sort of place that specializes in healthy food, but I checked the menu before I left (+1 point) and saw they had baked potatoes and salads. So I decided to get a baked potato and a salad before setting out (+1 point).
When we arrived, I asked the owner/waitress/chef (it's that kind of place) what was on the potato and the salad. Cheese, bacon, butter, and sour cream on the first; cheese, grilled chicken, onions, peppers, and tomatoes on the second. NOW, what I should have done here was asked for the plain baked potato with just sour cream (gotta have sour cream though) and the salad without the cheese and a lighter dressing. Should have, but didn't. Salad was that iceberg blend with the red cabbage and carrots (no surprise there) and was HUGE and absolutely swimming in cheese.
At that point, I should have divided my food so as to have smaller portions. I didn't do that either. So now, instead of playing cards or board games with family, I'm home feeling miserable and blogging. (-500 points)
So, Laura, the next time you plan on eating out (because you will eat out, even though right now it sounds awful), REMEMBER THIS. You will feel better and you will have a lot more fun!
