Counting calories works-

Thursday, February 02, 2012


Last night was puppy class--Tess, the GSPup, did terrible---
On the way home, husband and I stopped at McDonald's for supper.
We ate in the car----
I knew this was going to happen----so---before I left, I checked the McDonald's site online. I wanted to see how many calories in their sandwiches--
Of course, husbands and mine, favourite thing to eat is an Angus Deluxe , with fries and a cone---
Now get this-----1 Angus Deluxe has 740 calories--with 2070 sodium--then add a small fry , with 200 calories, and that is pretty much yoyur total calories for the day---So-----with my new resolution of getting my weight under the 200 mark, in the next 3 mos., (It's Do or Die here!)---I knew I just couldn't eat my favourite MicMac meal----(crying here!)-
So I began to search for food that I could eat----
A regular hamburger is 250 calories--Hmmmmm
A big Mac is 540 calories ----
A quarter pounder is 740 calories---
So----- Guess what I settled on?---- Chicken McNuggets-- 5-6 of those are 190 calories with 360 sodium--and add a small fry , of 200 calories--(NO ice cream cone)---for a total of 390 calories--I added a coffee --no sugar--to fill me up, as husband devoured his mammoth sandwich----and when I got home, ate an orange--

Well, I did it!! The hardest part was at the window--to get my mouth to say what ""I"" wanted-----but---I did it!!
I didn't die from starvation overnight----
AND-----my weight is DOWN------""DOWN"""""---2 pounds , this am--
Lord Love a Duck eh????
I am now 7.5 lbs away from the 200 mark---
Feb 2nd-----GroundHog Day -----I've bveen successful for 2 whole days----
But----It's a challenge--It's NOT easy----It's a lot of talking to myself---

Anyway-----HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY_--He is not going to see his shadow here, me thinks---so, Spring just might be around the corner--
That little groundhog looks pretty chubby----me thinks----

    I have already went through all the fast food places we might go to to see what the best option would be.

    I miss Big Mac's! We never really ate Micky D's often before, but that was what I got. Their little chicken wraps are pretty good, and not much for calories

    Glad you made such a wise choice!

    Hoping that Mr. Groundhog is kind and shows us that we'll have an early Spring!!

    Happy Ground Hog day to you too, my friend. 6 more weeks of Winter or 6 Weeks until Spring. Either way works for me.

    Good job on the healthier choices. When I eat at McDonalds, I usually get the plain hambuger with a small side salad/low fat-calorie dressing and water. If I want something sweet, which I usually do, I get the Yogurt Parfait. It is awesome!!

    Do have a good day. My Dear Father has now decided to quit eating. Bless his heart. I am off to the shower and down to see what is going on with him.

    Have a GREAT day. Sunny
