It turns out, Chinese food doesn't have to be my enemy!

I used to order Chinese food and get General Tso's chicken, crab rangoon, lo mein, those teriyaki beef stick thingys and an eggroll, and just stuff myself to the point of almost throwing up. Then I would be sad because I couldn't eat anymore. I avoided Chinese food for a long time since I started Sparkpeople, because I just couldn't handle it. Well, I think I can now. Last night I ordered shrimp and steamed mixed vegetables with garlic sauce on the side. I made half a cup of brown rice, because my Chinese restaurant only has white. I measured out 3 oz of shrimp, and 1 cup of the veggies. I dipped all of the shrimp in the garlic sauce, and then threw the rest of the sauce away, instead of pouring the whole thing over all of my food. And I actually finished the meal feeling satisfied. I think I'm gonna be OK.
