Farewell Fast Food

I know I've said it before, but this time I mean it. Lately I've been so depressed about the weight I've put on since having Josslyn. I realize now why I keep gaining. I eat fast food entirely too much. Last night the husband and I researched all our favorite menu items from places like McDonalds, Subway, and Taco Bell. In some cases I was consuming my daily recommended calorie intake, in just 1 sitting. I love the meatball sub from Subway, and that alone was 1100 calories. That was NOT including the cheese I have put on it or the cookie I eat after, LOL. Amazingly the least amount came from Taco Bell. I normally get 1 steak Gordita with pintos and cheese. That was about 500 calories total for the two. I am sick of growing, LOL. I'm almost 30. I should have stopped growing years ago. So starting today I'm eating better. I'm going to fight my lazy addiction and stop going to all these bad-for-me places. Aside from the calories it's just not good for me. I am getting older by the second and I have an unhealthy fear of dying young. It's about time I did something about it. I wonder what my cholesterol is, LOL? It's probably NOT pretty. I rarely ever drink water. I hate water. I drink diet soda like it's going out of style. Hey, I need something to keep me awake all day. I'm so not a coffee drinker. So wish me luck on my no fast food adventure.

Good luck!! I'm there with you, I haven't been losing as much as I would like since having Noah, there's still a bunch of "baby weight" hanging on to me! After reading your post, it makes me think of all the fast food we eat...

I totally have to do this with you! I dont eat alot of junk... salads almost everyday for lunch and I love to cook but we get so busy that atleast 2x a week we eat out and I always end up having subs or pizza or chinese... and I have to keep getting up early to work out in the mornings. I cant work out at night or I cant sleep! So I am with ya! Will check back in to see how you are doing!!

I eat out way too much, and I always say I wish I could have an IV put in of diet coke!
I will join you on your no fast food kick. we should plan something out. I refuse to give up my diet coke, but I can give up the fast food. We can hold each other accountable!

good luck on giving up fast food, it will make a huge difference. one thing I cut out of was not buying anything with high fructose corn syrup, that helped too! great luck to you1!

I totally support your efforts to transition you and your family to a healthier lifestyle. It's hard but its totally worth it. This is coming from a person who converted her family's lifestyle to not only healthy but organic and green as well - years ago. You're not only doing yourself a favor, but your teaching your kids to respect their body by living a healthy lifestyle. After all, we only get to have 1 body in our lifetime. It's not something that can be replaced when it's worn out, lol!

good luck!!! I just told DH lastnight as soon as I have this baby I am working my butt off to get back into my regular clothes.. I will have had 3 babies in 4 years, I am in desperate need of weight loss. We do way too much fast food too, between running froms sports practice to games, b day parties on the weekends it is just easier sometimes. You can do it, I have faith!! KUP on your progress :)
