Day 235

Monday 22nd August 2016

I have found over the summer that I have eaten out a lot. When I go out for a meal I find that I really want to order food that I can’t have now. 

I don’t know why because I have got into some really good habits this year. I think it’s because when I look at a menu I seem to home in on everything I have chosen for years.

Beef burgers were the things I ordered most. 

Sometimes I find that I am really craving for one too. However I have found that maybe I can’t order a burger the normal way ( with the bun) but I can still order it if I want. I don’t eat the bun, I replace the chips for sweet potato fries and ask for more salad. 

I sometimes find myself ordering something really healthy because I know that is what I should do. I find ordering something I don’t fancy really hard. Once it’s ordered I sit there hoping I am going to like my food when it arrives. 

When it finally does arrive I find that I really enjoy my choice – proberly even more than if I had actually order a burger.

I always thought that a salad wouldn’t fill me up enough. I have always thought that I need something really fattening to fill me up. I never realised what damage I was doing to my body. I now find that a salad is enough and I constantly get amazed at how full I feel afterwards. 

So eating out maybe different but its achievable and I don’t tend to struggle too much anymore when it comes to ordering.

Day 49

Thursday 18th February 2016

Stayed in all day with the kids, finding it harder with the kids around all day.

At 6pm went round a friends house for dinner. She makes really good curries that I can’t eat at the moment, so she made me a chicken salad.

I was so hungry that the smell of curry was driving me mad. It was OK though once I started eating my salad, because it was the nicest one I have had so far.

Day 44

Saturday 13th February 2016

Went to Macclesfield to see Matt’s brother.

I had to take my own food, but it didn’t bother me that I was eating anything different, it was nice to just get out and go somewhere.

I am still not eating anything for 5 hours between my meals. It is getting easier I can however have water and herbal teas

I have found out today though that I can not travel for to long as I need the toilet every 5 minutes. Must be all the water.
