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.

Hey ho, these things happen SP. if you really want to limit the old calories, the easiest thing to do is have an "allowed list" that's within your limits. So if I'm dieting and go to McDs (my three like it as a "treat") then I can choose one of:
Wrap of the day (just the wrap, no chips), big mac, or 9 chicken nuggets.
Drink is coffee, tea or diet coke. No chips apart from a couple pilfered from DS . That rocks in at about 500 calories.

Did any of the McD's clientele hoik your judgey pants?

Dubster Now its in my head grin

Yes one week due to different things happening.

oh sorry, SP, missed that. In that case, your will power is very strong. Because smoking is a hell of a lot worse for your health than a bit of extra weight. Good for you, I'm sure you can stretch your strength in the direction of healthy eating soon!

"KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds and then 2 pub meals" IN ONE WEEK? fricking nora

Manic I would rather smoke! Stated that earlier in the thread grin

I'm a month in with one night of smoking due to drinking a stupid amount so not doing bad

signing? Bugger. Gaining.

Have you read Allen Carr's "easy way" stopping smoking for women without signing weight?

I'm always banging on about him. I quit smoking about six years ago, just after I got married and I'm currently lighter than on my wedding day. Easy peasy. Honest!

Bloody love the spicy bean deli wrap and a mocha drink thingy. Always with chips

Maybe if you had some help with smoking rather than going cold turkey you would be able to manage it without overeating instead?

I know what you mean about being short and weight - I swear I can tell if I gain even a pound!

Am I the only one who'd rather smoke than gain weight then?! (if I had to that is, I don't want to smoke, just see it as the lesser of two evils!)

I cant eat that much. I haven't eaten since the Mcdonalds as fills me.

well just had some haribos

I want a big mac now sad

Wingit Mon 02-Sep-13 18:27:21

Big Mac's too big??? WTAF?

I have a large big mac meal with milk and a chicken burger as well oh and sweet and sour sauce and sweet curry sauce. Every time.

That's about once every 3 - 6 months though as there isn't one anywhere near close to where I live or shop. Or I'd be a house side

They are too big for me!

I've only just upgraded from a happy meal!

I have been to the toilet a few times now. Foes that happen to other after a McDs? Feel like I have lost a few pounds now grin

I am fasting today and just reading about burgers and fries is making me dribble....really need a Big Mac right now!

Took the kids to McDonalds for an ice cream earlier and managed not give into temptation. God knows how I managed that though, but I do feel rather pleased with myself even though I will probably eat lots of chocolate tomorrow. grin


I used to go swimming but then we would pop into the Chinese on the way home!

SPs FWIW I used to go to my WW. Meeting every Tuesday lunchtime and then head to Burger King for a Whopper (no fries) to get my junk food fix.

I figured it gave me a whole week to be better ready for the scales the next week.

I did lose weight! grin
