So the wife and I have been making a lot of changes in our food choices lately.
I took her to Subway today for lunch and this is a prime example:
Previous to this whole change:
Foot-long on White (Italian)
Cold-cut trio – DOUBLE meat
Lettuce and Mayo
Cool Ranch Doritos
Large Pepsi – two refills
6-inch on 9-grain Whole Wheat
Cold-cut trio – DOUBLE meat (going to single meat next time)
Lettuce and Mayo (going to lite mayo next time)
Baked Lays chips
20-oz bottle of water
Last night I went to my poker spot and had a bourbon chicken foot-long sub sandwich. Instead of eating the whole thing, I removed the sub roll all together and just ate the chicken with half the sauce.
I thought cutting my intake would make me always feel hungry, but I actually don’t even feel the need for snacks anymore. Also, I’m no longer repulsed at the thought of water – which is a new thing for me. Previously, if you asked me if I wanted water I would give a funny look and rather drink nothing than have water. Now, I actually look forward to having a glass.
Yesterday, I only had 1 soda all day, which I’m going to repeat today.
I’m within a pound of the halfway mark of my current goal to lose 50 pounds 🙂
Stay tuned… 🙂
