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.

No I'm in West Yorkshire. There's a Burger King up the road too.

I'm sat MNetting and listening to peoples conversations while he runs around in play area. Its great

envy

Our Mcdonalds just has (delicious) food, no play area. I'm all hungry now. I love their chicken nuggets and McFlurrys.

better Maccy Ds than the fags. Well done on cutting down. nobody can say you dont have any willpower if you are managing that.

One battle at a time.

And once you stop smoking you will be able to run, or swim, as you will breathe better, and then you will fit and then you will be able to eat Maccy ds if you want to.....

Beast I failed last Saturday due to drinking so smoked shit loads.

The weight is easy to spot on me as I'm so short.

YABU to make me want a Maccy d's now.

But the nearest one is 8 miles away and I don't have a car.

Gutted.

Keep up your fight with the fags OP, better for your health to be a slightly porky ex smoker than a thin smoker IMO. When you've been smoke free a few months then tackle the weigh issues & you will be able to exercise then without getting as out of breath. Honestly getting off the fags is the best thing you will ever do healthwise & the money you save can go on MCDs

Damn you SP. I'm about to go to asda which has a mcdonalds inside and really want a cheeseburger now.

<must not give in, slimming world weigh in tonight>

SPs never mind last Saturday, what counts is today flowers

Weight is temporary, accept you'll put on a bit while you sort the fags out. Once they are gone, you can get fit. Then you will lose the weight. Then you will be laughing.

be kind to yourself, you deserve it, stopping smoking is a big achievement.

I'm doing it with no replacements either. Ni e cigs, gum, patches etc. Totally gone cold turkey!

I've ended up moving house furniture and decorating to give myself something to do grin

Oasis, so you're trying?

Look at the calories and sugar in that and get back to us..

Cheeseburger with side salad and diet coke comes in at under 500 cals.

Awful I was joking with that hence the grin

I guess its the thought that counts.

At least it's not a double cheeseburger? calories in McDonalds

FatPenguin Mon 02-Sep-13 13:34:59

Well that photo of cliff has put me off a mc d's

Our local McDonalds had a play area. It was great. I used to buy a coffee and read a book let DD loose, they'd give her a free balloon and all was well.

Unfortunately that's what everyone else did too so it went out of business sad

Beastofburden Mon 02-Sep-13 13:36:54

wow at cold turkey. Dont rule out the helpers though if it starts to get tough.

Have a great day. I would rather be at Maccy Ds than back at my desk envy

I also vowed to eat a healthier diet, now that the kids are back at school and I can chose my own lunch! I had a really healthy lunch, felt very virtuous! Just got those post-lunch munchies though and have fallen for the swarthy charms of a flake yoghurt, hiding at the back of the fridge. I am eating it right now. Tis lush!

I will go and self- flagellate with a packet of lentils in a mo!

Be kind to yourself OP. unless you are also alcoholic/on crack, then giving up smoking is the single best thing you can do for your health.

When you've conquered that you can choose to do something about any weight gained, if you want to.

Well done. - I am in awe!

YABU to eat McD's EVER envy <vom face not envy!!>
Now had you said KFC (that burger with the hash brown in mmmmm)...

FeijoaVodkaLovesHokeyPokey Mon 02-Sep-13 14:05:29

Good work on giving up smoking by the way grin

Hermione Just a little crack grin

Kato It was a double and I'm not clicking that link. Muaha ha ha ha

Just painted two large walls with the toddler. Surely the stress and painting will burn off my burger?

grin

Beastofburden Mon 02-Sep-13 14:32:53

Sps you really ought to use a paintbrush, or roller, you know. Using toddlers leads to a very uneven finish.

grin beast

Beast grin Seriously, I was so close to using him as a brush the bossy git.

Beastofburden Mon 02-Sep-13 14:37:50

on a nice long pole. Hmmm.

Do you need to wash the car grin ?

I've vowed to do the healthy eating as well. Everything was going to plan and then holiday club ended. I'm now eating cheap lidl biscuits out of stress. Kids won't do homework so I'm more stressed. Unfortunately when I'm stressed I eat biscuits and drink buckets mugs of sugary coffee.
You are doing well on not smoking though! If you can just get past the next few weeks you should start eating normally again? Hope it goes well for you!
