So here are some eating out rules I am sticking to.
1. No chips or bread before the meal.
2. No cream sauces and very light cheeses
3. Check the menu before going to the restaurant so I have an idea of what I want before going.
4. Eat slow and enjoy the meal. Take several drinks of water in- in between.
I am down 6lbs in 2 weeks just watching my diet more. Very happy with that. Plan on keeping it up. I am just pretending I am in a competition right now. It's working .
