Eating Out....

Sitting this morning with a cup of coffee as I type this.......Tonight I'm meeting up with an old childhood friend.  It will be nice to get together and chat about what is going on in each others lives (outside of what we share in our facebook posts).  W- and I grew up in the same neighborhood and lived four houses away from each other.  My brothers and I spent many summer days hanging out at their house and playing kickball outside. 

We are meeting at a restaurant tonight and I'm a little bit concerned about staying within my portions and my ww points (I'm going to cut my portions in half before I start eating as a strategy). In addition to the dinner tonight it's a weekend at the beach with my son K for some one on one time and some fun with cousins then it's father's day with a BBQ dinner to die for (I'm saving my extra points for the BBQ).  I'm planing on eating well/healthy on my trip  to the beach by bringing lots of fruit and some pb2 with 1pt flat bread for snacks.  Wish me luck!

What I find frustrating lately with eating out and the temptations is I only have 8lbs to be at the top of my healthy weight range and I've never been in the healthy weight range for my height (ok maybe at the age of 7 but never in my adult life or as a teenager).  These last few lbs are taking forever!  Once I reach my 8lb loss I'm going to have a fat analysis done to see what my body is really comprised of.  I know I have more muscle than when I first started this journey but I'm really curious about what the real picture of my body's health is from the inside.

My boys are now up and ready to start the day so I'm signing off for now.  Time to make a lunch for my son and then check out the restaurant menu  to plan ahead on what to order.  I'll do my best to eat well and ask how things are prepared - No Matter What!

  1. Sonya - can you just believe you are the same girl??? chking out the menu BEFORE going?? PLANNING your meal attack BEFORE hitting the joint?? who is this woman and what did you do with your old self?? ; ) I am so proud of you making all these very SMART decisions ahead of time!! Well, now here is the hard part, how did it really go for you?

    Enjoy your weekend, and of course; I'm interested in your fat analysis and what all that involves once you are there. We are so close to our goal weight and it seems to be taking forever, but we can do this and we want to keep it off forever, so the patience will pay off!!! -mid
