Enjoy Eating Out
"The key is planning, being flexible, and using your tools!"
I could have used this meeting topic my first week of Weight Watchers! The very first day of returning to Weight Watchers my family decided to go out to eat at a diner for dinner and I wasn't prepared. I freaked out and did the only thing I could think of to handle the situation at that time for me. Not eat anything. I literally sat at the table with a glass of water and watched my family eat their dinners. I went home that night and made an egg sandwich for dinner because I knew how to properly track it and it would fit into my points for that day.
Next time I think I would handle the situation differently. Instead of freaking out and getting upset I would try to find something on the menu I could eat or substitute in to fit my eating style. I most certainly could have ordered an egg sandwich at the diner made similarly to the way I make it at home. This way I would be eating with my family.
