To be sat in McDonalds 2 hours after I vowed to eat healthily and lose weight?

(85 Posts)

My will power obviously is super shit. I'm sat here with a double cheese burger and some chips but a drink if Oasis so I'm trying grin

I blame the toddler. He saw McDonalds and asked if we could go. It is dinner time seen as he had breakfast at half 5!

I shall vow to eat healthily and lose weight after this I guess.

I don't understand how people can eat in those places. The overwhelming smell of greasy fried food when you open the door is enough to make me barf!

SPs that is indeed super shit willpower. grin What flavour are the McFlurrys today?

Its Galaxy McFlurrys. Chocolate or Caramel.

I can eat in these places as I love a good greasy, unidentifiable meat burger

Ooh I would have the Galaxy one.

The dirty McDonalds breakfast I had the other week was fabulous and awful all at the same time.

I had a Mcds breakfast on the way home from my mates yesterday as wellblush In my defence she bought me it. Coffee was rank and the hash brown wasn't all that but the bacon nap was marvellous

Ok, not healthy, but if you want to lose weight, all is not lost, just add up the calories you've consumed, and stop when you get about 1800, and then walk home the long way.

I'm not walking home! I have tubs of paint and a toddler grin

I am trying to stop smoking and it seems I have turned to food to replace fags! I have put on half a stone in 1 month!

lol tulip. Dont eat for the rest of the day OP. Then watch 'Supersize me' grin

I wouldn't worry, I'm on a diet and had meringue and chocolate cream last night.. I've cut out McDonald's/fast food completely this time but last time I lost weight a few years ago, I worked around it by having salad instead of chips, a deli wrap or sandwich instead of a burger and then a mini ice cream or something.. Usually was ok and made me feel less guilty smile

Step away from the burger

Place those fries down in front of you grin

I put on 3 stone in a few months when i quit smokingshock

I turned into a proper greedy bastard

Supersize Me and SecretEaters make me hungry!

Chips are 330 cals

Burger was 440 cals

Sparklingbrook Mon 02-Sep-13 11:45:49

How can those little chips be so calorific?

Fuck it I shall turn back to the fags grin

I dont really eat when I'm smoking. I've been eating tubes of Pringles each night. I'm a proper heifer

Little chips have a relatively larger surface area and soak up more fat than big, chunky chips.

I am very hungry now and I don't even like McDs.

Do weight watchers you can eat crap and still lose weight haha

I had a maccy d's, kfc AND a burger king one week but it was all within my points and i lost 6.5lbs

Not the healthiest way to do it but i'm slimmer ;)

Other week I had KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds and then 2 pub meals blush

The toddler is running around in the play area. Think it was that that made him ask to come here as hes only eaten one chicken nugget

Dirtymistress Mon 02-Sep-13 11:53:40

I will never be as thin as I was when I smoked. Sigh. But the answer is to go running, far and often. Then you can eat what you likegrin

twistyfeet Mon 02-Sep-13 11:54:41

the toddler is clearly a secret McD's employee wink

Wingit Mon 02-Sep-13 11:54:49

YANBU, I can't walk past a Mcdonalds without going in for something.

Personally I think the smell is divine! grin

MortifiedAdams Mon 02-Sep-13 11:55:11

Your Maccy Ds has a play area?!

I cant run! I get knackered walking grin

I've only just started feeling the weight creep up. Clothes are a little tighter, arse is a litre bigger. That's last place I needed weight on.

Mortified Yes and its also near a Asda and a B&Ms.

I thought mist McDonalds had them
