Making hard choices

My husband has some gift certificates for two free meals at a local breakfast restaurant, and since Gabriella had an orthodontist appointment at 10:30 this morning, we thought it'd be a great idea to have a nice breakfast on the way.

Then I started to think. Would they have something for me to eat on the menu that won't add yet another messed up meal for me? I decided to look and see if their menu was online. It was.

I did find a meal that would be acceptable (scrambled eggs, mixed fresh fruit, whole grain english muffin) BUT I also found so many meals I'd rather have! Chorizo omelet. Sausage, egg, and cheese skillet. Pecan waffles. (That's the one that ended up putting me right over the edge!)

I realized that I'm not feeling as strong now as I did a couple of weeks ago, and I honestly couldn't trust myself right now to make the correct choices. So....we decided to postpone the breakfast date until I meet my goal weight, or until I'm feeling stronger again. Hubby took Gabby to breakfast at McDonalds, and I just stayed at home, because frankly, McDonalds breakfast is one of my favorite things in the world! :-)

It's hard because I'm finding myself rearranging my entire life around this diet. I know it isn't forever, but at the same time it kinda is, because I never want to get this big again. I need this to seriously be a LIFE CHANGE, and that means being strong enough to make the tough choices....at least most of the time!

Side note: I haven't weighed myself since Saturday morning showed no weight loss. I'm just scared of what I'll see there. I was wanting to stop weighing in all the time, so I guess that is something good that came out of last week!


  1. You go, girl! Good for you for waiting on the breakfast thing until healthy feels normal to you. We used to eat fast food all the time but started cutting it out. Now, after eating my own breakfasts for so long, I can't stand McDonald's. It all tastes the same. Now...Chick-fil-et is another matter...

    I need to exercise. You've inspired me!

  2. Somehow I missed the fact that you had this blog! This is SOOOO cute!!!!!! :) I'm so proud of you for your weight loss so far! Way to go! :)

  3. Hey thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad I motivated you! I saw where you asked if it was weird to pray about losing weight. No...God wants us to talk to Him about all our concerns and needs. Even getting healthy and losing weight. Prayer is powerful! Have a great week! Oops, I just realized I am responding from my family blog...(my weight loss blog is a secret blog...shhh!);0)

  4. Just testing...

  5. Woo hoo, thanks for fixing:0)

  6. By the way, you rock!
    Keep it up!!!

  7. My peoples! You can not imagine how warm it feels to come here and find my peoples. Love you guys!

    And Rhonda~ Thanks so much for that. It's so easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and forget God is even in the small things! Thank goodness...
