No Dining Out Diary - Jan. 19, 2012

We are now almost three weeks into our eating at home challenge. To be honest, I never in a million years thought it'd be going this well. I thought I'd be having cravings and I'd be throwing a hissy - crying, whining and stomping my feet - about not going out to eat. Nothing like that has happened.

Today was the first time when I had to tell myself "no". I was sitting waiting on my oil change to be finished and I looked over at McDonalds and thought, "I'd really like a hot chocolate and sausage biscuit. I forgot to eat breakfast."

I honestly think a lot of my over eating and dining out stems from boredom. I wasn't "starving" but I had nothing to do or think about so I thought about walking over. After I laid down the law and told myself "NO!",  it wasn't even an issue.

I have already seen a couple of HUGE positives from us eating at home...

Before when we were dining out regularly, I had horrible stomach problems. Every time I ate, I threw up and was miserable - whether I ate at home or dining out. Those problems are no longer existent. It is amazing!


I have lost  8 pounds in three weeks! Woot!!

Now I just need to be more diligent about cutting out soda and other sweets from our eating at home challenge. But if you ask me, I think we're doing pretty good! :)

Blessings to you on your journey!
