I've got to give myself a shout out! You know I've struggled with my weight all my life, and I've been on more diets than I could ever count (even if I took off my shoes). This time is so different. Maybe it's because I'm not looking at it as a diet - it's a new way of living. Regardless, I've failed so many times that I have to give myself a big ole pat on the back for the smart eating I've been doing!
Today, I went to Carfagna's Kitchen with my hubby and friend. Before ordering, I looked up calories and decided on the lasagna. I knew I could get a combo meal with a salad (get in those veggies!) and a smaller portion of lasagna. My calorie info told me 1 cup of lasagna was 300 calories. From what I remembered, the combo serving of lasagna was 1 cup, and I ordered. Boy was I wrong! When the waiter set the lasagna in front of me, I could tell it was double what I expected. Old Amy would have ate the whole thing. New, healthier Amy ate exactly half and went to the counter for a box. And you know what, it was enough!
