Hello From a Former McDonald’s Addict

19 Mar

If you knew the “old” me – you’d know that I had one addiction.  McDonald’s.  It’s so weird how we all have our vices.  My Achilles’s heel was McDonald’s.

Yesterday marked one month on Weight Watchers and a month and a day since the last time I had McDonald’s.  It’s hard to believe it has been that long.

Eating at McDonald’s alone is bad enough for your health.  But the sheer quantity of food I ate when I went there?  Terrible.  I’m actually too ashamed to write out what a normal meal was for me.

I can’t help but wonder if part of my success on Weight Watchers is simply from not eating at the Golden Arches anymore.

I have moments where I crave it.  The yummy fries.  A delicious Big Mac.

But then I remember how much better I feel being down 8 pounds in the past month.  How great it is to start making progress.  How I’m one day closer to my goal of going to Disney World.

And it makes it a little easier to skip the craving. 🙂

    It gets easier, I used to stop at Culver’s for my weekly eating out on shopping day. The meal always ended with a custard, how can you go to Culver’s and NOT get a custard. Anyway…this year to help me get unstuck at my current weigh, and loose all the holiday weight I gained, I decided to give up eating out for a month. That turned into only eating out on special occasions, and I am happy to report for the year I have only eaten out 3 times.

    At first it sucked so much. I had the will power, but it hurt a little inside when I drove by and would see what the flavor of the day was. After a while thou, it got easier, and now I don’t even notice it at all as I drive by.

    What I really wanted to say, thou, is good for you and keep up the hard work!
