I was doing Ok. Meeting my calorie goals all week. My husband brought home a cheeseburger and a chicken sandwich with fries. I love McDonald's so I ate it all. I am over calorie budget today. I rode my exercise bike for 45 minutes. I could say it happens once in a while it is OK. But is is all the time. I have to be honest with someone ..... I might as well start with myself.

Have a great day SPARKERS. Help me say NOOO

    Why did he bring that kind of food to you? Does he know what journey you are on to a healthier life? Might want to tell him..
    Start over as much as needed.. never give up.

    I would have had to eat the fries if they were hot. If he brought them home cold, I could throw them out easily. I also like McD's fish sandwich.
    I hope you can let this go and not beat yourself up about it.
    I spent the day at the hospital with my friend last Saturday and hadn't had anything to eat but a bit for breakfast before going to vet to work. I went to Fazzoli's (Italian) and got myself a chicken bacon ceaser salad and the Ultimate fettuccine. Now when I saw the salad, I was perfectly satisfied and would have been good to go. But I ate the fettuccine too. I only ate about 1/3 of the pasta they gave me, but everything in it. I even ate 3 breadsticks and I never eat the breadsticks. Now I have to say, I grazed this meal off and on from about 4pm to 8pm. And I was worried about how I would feel the next day. Fortunately, I think because I grazed it, I didn't end up with a big lump in my belly. However, I could feel that meal move through my body. I'll be more careful next time.
    Good Luck!

    Don't beat yourself up over it. Learn from it and do better next time.

    I can't resist a burger, either.

    It is hard to resist that temptation of the hyperpalatable food like McD's. **SIGH** It happens. You tracked it. New day, new start.

    Get back on track and forget that happened. Be good to yourself with tracking food!

    I would have eaten it too. But then we move on!

    I would be the one bringing it in, not my husband. I never like how I feel after eating fast food. It's like the salty chemical taste lasts and lasts.. ew. I try to focus on that.

    It doesn't sound to me like it happens all the time - you said you'd been meeting your calorie goals all week. Maybe next time he does that, let it cool, put it in the freezer, have it when a week or so has gone by?

    I don't know your whole story - but could you start with talking to your husband about not bringing that stuff home for you? Just a thought . . . .

    Maybe you could have one sandwich not both. Split the fries w/ hubby. Try removing half the bun & eating open-face. Skip the cheese.

    The only things I like at McDonald’s is their coffee and egg McMuffin.

    I never order fries. Yes, I love them, but I'll put out on them. My husband never eats all of his, do I finish his. Its my way of controlling myself. You might suggest something like that to your husband.

    Maybe you just love hamburgers. You can recreate it to make it healthier . Mix chopped mushrooms and hamburger meat together. It’s the new in thing in healthy restaurants where I am. Try a whole wheat bun. Measure out the sauce. Leafy green lettuce and tomatoes on it. Baked French fries are so good. Think in terms of health not calories. If your body gets the right nutrients you won’t be hungry and your calories will be fine. Good Luck

    Here are some things I tell myself to help me stay on track: :Don't give up" "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels", "You already know what fries taste like".
