I have to note that I had sort of a mini-meltdown over dinner. I went with my sister to a sandwich shop. They have their nutritional values printed on their "to go" menu. As I stood in line studying the menu I was overwhelmed with the choices. I had to let my sister and her son order their food and then sit down and really plan what to order. At first glance it looked like everything had a bazillion calories and I was almost panicked at what to order. I almost made the decision to let them eat and I would grab something elsewhere. But then, I once again was reminded by the little voice in my head (the good one, not the accusing one) that if this is a LIFESTYLE and not a DIET then I could eat from that menu. I calmed down and ordered this...
A cup of Vegetarian vegetable soup and a half portion of Cobb Salad. I didn't eat the apple on the tray. It simply came withthe meal. I got a Diet Pepsi which I also didn't drink because I don't really like Diet Pepsi...LOL..I should have just gotten water. So anyway, according to the menu this meal came to
Note...I was blown away to see that the salad had 18 gms of fat! How on earth to you pack 18 gms of fat into HALF a salad!? Next time I'll do dressing on the side!
When I got home I had a cup of Fage Total 0 yogurt,
mixed with cinnamin and Stevia 2pts
and a sliced Apple for dipping 2pts
I also had a snack of Trader Joe's Corn Puffs...these things are awesome! (also no photo)
It's a large serving, 2 1/2 cups for 3 pts.
Total Daily Points 26.5
So I am realizing that along with losing weight, learning to eat in the real world without requiring that my food choices fall in between a rigid standard, is part of the process of being set free from the bondage of dieting.
