I also like the other date options that are out there, and on blind dates the public pools are a great safe spot to meet up who does not like to sit in a hot tub :)

The most motivational link I have ever seen.. please watch and share it with anyone that needs help to keep going.

I can't really relate to this since I've only lost 10 pounds and I've stopped dating for the time being. However, maybe suggest a restaurant with healthier options. Or only eat half of your meal and doggy bag the rest. I often do this in restaurants and actually end up throwing out what's left.

If you're going to go out, plan ahead. Stick to your calories for the day (unless it's your cheat day). Save enough carbs so you can have one cocktail, and pick a lower calorie cocktail or drink (e.g., mojito with the simple syrup on the side so you control the sugar content, a bay breeze or seabreeze, a glass of white wine, etc.). Perform an internet search for low calorie cocktails to get more ideas. Ask the server if there are any lower calorie options on the menu. Order appetizer salads or appetizers in general.

Or avoid going out to eat and opt for more activity focused dates: hiking, indoor rock climbing, yoga/hot yoga, run together, take a walk in the park, walk around downtown, skiing, go to a museum, visit a winery (limiting yourself to a glass of wine), have him over for dinner (then you can control what food is served)....etc.

When I am dating I do like going out to eat sometimes, but it can get really boring really quickly.

So, I have a HUGE problem with this and am wondering what some of your solutions are. Many dates involve going out to eat somewhere nice and cocktails. ALL HIGH IN CALORIES :-( I feel like every time I start getting out and dating, I quickly get derailed and start gaining weight. Then my self esteem lowers and I stop dating, focus on my diet again, lose the weight, and repeat the process. Ugh, I need to stop this vicious cycle. It is difficult to tell someone who is meeting the skinny me that I struggle with my weight and need to be very careful, I get embraced. How do all of you balance this?
