Calories Count

Have you been out to eat recently? Or even just to Starbucks?

If so have you noticed the menus now list the calories by every food?

I don't know about you, but I kind of like it.

Hubby doesn't.

He says that if you're going to go out you should just enjoy. Through caution to the wind and order whatever your heart desires.

I say that doesn't work unless you only go out to eat once or twice a year.

I find that we eat a least something that we have purchased away from home at least once a week.

I can be good all week, I can watch everything I eat...I actually lose a pound or two...and one meal out and it's back to start.

I like the experience of eating out. I like to sit in Starbucks with a friend and chat for awhile. I like my food prepared and delivered to me every so often.

But I don't like never making any progress with losing that nagging 10 pounds which I have been trying to loose...well for a long time.

Now I have a chance at both worlds. I can get the experience of going out and I can choose wisely so I won't have to face that setback on the scale the following morning.

And I'm often surprised.

Foods which I would have ordered, because I thought they were the lower calorie choices...are not! And foods that I would not have ordered...well, I should.

It's really been an eye opening experience. And I think a good one.

What do you think?
