Thanks for all the kudos. And YES I drank gobs of water. You know their glasses are Super Sized! So, I had 3-4 large glasses of water with dinner.

I tell you my friends, I could not stop talking about how much I enjoyed my meal. I savored every little bite. In all honesty, I could have eaten 1/2 my meal and been very satisfied. But Miss Karine just could not resist. I think I kept eating because I knew I could. Next time, I think I'll eat half & take the rest home for a 2nd meal. What a bargain! My meal was $9.99 and I could have eaten twice from it!

I think it is awesome that Outback has this "light" option on many of their dishes. Light means none of the dry seasoning. You can choose a side salad & one veggie or 2 veggies. I chose te 2 veggies instead. Hope you enjoy your next dining out experience.

Love you all!
Karine

emoticon emoticon job picking the right foods off of the menu and also controlling your sodium once the food got there. Did you drink water with diner? emoticon
Once you get use to eating like this, you will actually look forward to the way your body reacts to a "healthy meal" versus one loaded with fats and calories! They leave me feeling sick to my stomach now, and with no energy! emoticon
Keep up the great work, it will show for sure in sO many ways!
AND congrats on the sale of your home!
Blessings,

If you can go to Outback ever and walk away without totally blowing your calorie budget, you really have accomplished something! I'm so afraid to go there that I haven't been there forever-didn't know they had added a light menu...hmm, perhaps a possibility for my next dinner out!

Congrats to you for making such good choices-you should ve so proud of yourself!

Just HAD to share this with everyone. . .

Hubby & I went out to dinner to celebrate finalizing the sale of our house. Buyer's loan, appraisal, home inspection all are OK. Just waiting for the closing to come. Yippee.

He 1st suggested Mexican. I said, no -- too much fat. How about the buffet I say? I can have salad & bring my own dressing.) He said he ate there for lunch 2 days ago. So then I said, what about Outback? He said OK and off we went.

I tell you, I spent the entire drive planning my meal. A real steak - Oh yeah! We get there & I discover that Outback offers a "light" option. Oh yeah! Forget the sodium my friends. They leave off the dry rub spices (mostly salt & processed junk). So here's what I ate:

+++ 1 6oz sirloin steak (it looked like a filet mignon when it arrived)
+++ Freshly steamed assorted vegetables (broccoli, carrots & snow peas) with nothing on them
+++ 1 scrumptious baked sweet potatoe with nothing on it (no butter & no salt).

I asked for some olive oil on the side. I dipped the tines of my fork into the oil & splashed 2-3 times onto my veggies. I salted my veggies & steak with 2 dashes from the salt shaker.

And here's the best part..... I didn't miss any meals or snacks all day. I had my usual well-balanced breakfast & lunch. AND I STILL STAYED WITHIN MY LEGAL RANGE FOR THE DAY!!! AND MY SODIUM INTAKE IS STILL WELL UNDER 2300 FOR THE ENTIRE DAY!

OK. Are you impressed or what? And I ate every delicious morsel of food on my plate. I walked out of the restaurant stuffed to the gills & totally satisfied. Oh yeah! Today was a great day!!!

When I realized that my entire pig out was uner 550 calories I almost cried. So this is why French women don't get fat. They just eat the right food in the right portions.

Anyway, I just had to share that great meal with you ladies. From now on, my future celebrations will probably be at our local Outback. This was wonderful!

Happy Sparking!!!
Karine
