Yep, that's the number I saw on my scale this morning - YIKES!!! WHAT HAPPENED???

Simple answer to that question - eating and drinking OUT!!

In the past week, I've eaten exactly 1 (ONE)! dinner meal at home, prepared by me or hubby. I know it's supposed to be fun to eat out, and it is, but let's be realistic, there's absolutely no way I can control what goes into the food that we didn't prepare!! The other culprit is the wine that's part of the meal....Now, I know I can drink water, tea, anything else, it doesn't have to be alcoholic so why don't I just say NO??? Because I'm in a setting where others are consuming a drink and I get lazy and think, oh 1 or 2 won't hurt me.... It doesn't, in fact Dr's. even recommend a glass of wine, but when I think about the days of constant dining out, and I count up those glasses of wine, I'm truly horrified!!

So, I've made a decision this morning that I WILL NOT give in to that temptation and to limit our eating out as much as possible. I'm not participating in the Biggest Loser Challenge for fun........I'm here to get rid of the 5, now 10 extra pounds I've gained through carelessness.

Stay turned for future reports of my success with this new goal!

    Oh it is so difficult to figure out nutrition when we eat out...and worse yet when we have potlucks and such. I hate trying to track those days! I know lots of places have their nutritional info available, but so many more don't. I am sure it is cheaper to eat from home as well, and if you can control enough of what goes into the meal, you can still enjoy the wine!

    My downfall, too. But I'd like to see 160 from where I am right now at 180.

    Eating out has sabotaged me this week too - well, that and my own poor choices! When will we ever learn? I'm determined to have a week of home HEALTHY cooking this week too!

    Yes, it's a Catch 22! It's hard to stay on track when you are out with others. You will succeed, one day at a time! emoticon
