I suck at trying to diet. Mostly because I have never really tried to diet. Plus, I have a hard time denying myself anything I really want. If one day I work late and don't want to cook, well damnit I am going to stop and get myself something quick and easy. That usually means fattening. With that in mind, I am really trying to make better choices when I do go out to eat, cutting some of the calories/fat that I normally wouldn't even think about. But since I have never really counted calories or even paid attention to food labels I am not sure if I am even doing that right. For instance, last night we stayed in but I didn't really feel like cooking so Nick went and got us Pei Wei. I would have normally ordered kung pao beef with fried rice (probably a million calories plus 1000 grams of sodium?), but opted for the curry chicken over brown rice, then I forced myself to only eat half of it instead of gobbling down the whole thing. Then after dinner Nick decided to have an ice cream cone, I was suffering from the munchies (probably a good idea to quit smoking if I want to be serious about losing weight) so I decided to have one as well, but I only made a very small one, instead of the 2.5 scoops I would normally eat. Man, I totally suck at this.
