Preparing for success

Tomorrow I am going out to eat twice.  With adults!  For conversation and friendship!  Wheeee!

But going out is also a stumbling block for the Weight Watchers plan.  Yes you can eat anything on the plan but you still need to be mindful of the points and keep on track.  And that can be a challenge, particularly if you are going into something blind.

So I decided that I wouldn't go in blind.  Today I spent some time on the websites of the restaurants and some Weight watchers points sites and planned my options out.  I haven't decided what to eat exactly, but I have a list of some "better" options so that I can make good choices tomorrow.

The good part about going out tomorrow is seeing my friends and getting away from the everyday.  It is not about the food, it is about the fellowship.

So I'm determined not to let it be about the food.

It is true I am likely to use a good chunk of my weekly points tomorrow, but I'm not going to go overboard because I have planned to be successful.  And so I will be.

I'll report back tomorrow night with photo proof of how I did!
