Went to Six Flags over Mid America amusement park over the weekend with some friends. Spent 8 hours there and did a lot of walking, however, I made a few bad choices. The sub I chose from subway (seafood) for lunch was not one of the low-point ones. That evening, when we ate dinner at Denny’s I got the buffalo chicken sandwich which almost has enough points for an entire day. While I ate fairly well for the rest of the week, I guess it wasn’t enough to make up for it. I gained a pound.
Things I’ve learned:
I need to carry my Dining Out book in my car, so I don’t have to make my choices at the restaurant blindly, and find out what the points are later on.
However, things could have been a lot worse. I only gained one pound. I’ve still lost 5 pounds over four weeks. It might take me a year to lose 50 pounds at this rate, but I will lose it.
