Thoughts for today
Went to lunch today with some of the guys from work to a great pizza and wings place, and ordered a grilled chicken salad. It turned out to be very good, but I have to admit when the waitress brought the other guys hot plates of steaming New York style slices, my salad suddenly didn't look quite as good in comparison. Of course getting teased a little by the guys for ordering salad didn't help either. This is going to be one of the challenges of doing this for the long haul. We go to lunch 2-3 times a week, and I refuse to become one of those people who tries to dictate where everyone else eats just because I'm trying to lose weight, so there will be more days ahead where I have to pass on pizza. But I won't pass on the days when I really crave pizza or whatever the food may be, because I feel strongly that blocking out all the good rich fatty foods that I enjoy is unrealistic if I want to make a long term change as opposed to the cycle of dropping some pounds and then putting them back on.
