Even if it's a lie by omission.
So here's what happened:
I go out for lunch almost every day.
I run errands and sometimes go through a drive-through, but when I do that
I always order something that I've researched the nutritional value/info on
So that I can stay with my healthy eating lifestyle.
If I don't go get lunch, I nibble on pretzels or fruit or
turkey while I'm at work and then just run my errand.
So a couple of weeks ago I went to the ReStore.
I was so psyched because I got this cool white
table with black trim that adjusts to different angles like a drafting
I drove through McDonald's and opened my mouth to order the Berry Chiller
but instead of MY voice, this strange Linda Blair voice came out and ordered a
Mocha Frappe! Suddenly my sanity returned and I spurted out "No Whipped Creme
I drove up to the window and my hands were shaking as I took the
paper off the straw.
that was good.
I returned to work and walked up front to the office and told the girls-
"Guess what I got at lunch!" and then I told them about the table and what
a bargain it was.
They all congratulated me on my great find.
I stood there for a moment and then blurted -
"You won't believe what happened to me a lunch!"
They all turned and waited to hear.
I told them that I went through McDonald's and....
Ordered a Mocha Frappe!
They all gasped.
It was like I told them I had stabbed the girl through the window.
"What made you do it!?"
"I don't know!" I exclaimed! "It just happened!"
One of them said, "I won't even tell you how much FAT is in one of those
"I know" I replied, my head hung in shame.
(It was SO good.)
But I immediately went back to eating good.
Then last week I went through Taco Bell and a similar thing happened.
Instead of ordering a Fresco Soft Chicken Taco, I ordered a regular Crunchy
I didn't tell anyone when I went back to work.
Then this last Wednesday, I had cereal for breakfast.
and for lunch and for dinner.................
I've hit the wall.
I think it's because the scale isn't budging.
OK, it budges.
Total weight lost so far - 31 lbs. 28lbs. 30lbs.
Those numbers go up and down every day.
I'm kinda freaking out.
I'm trying to remember that this wasn't about weight.
It's about being healthy and making right choices for LIFE.
So...I'm going to start brown bagging my lunch
and try to force myself to walk.
Any other suggestions?
