My dinner was planned 24 hours in advance. I selected the specific dinner that I wanted to order at an Applebee's Restaurant' near my hotel. Once I got to the restaurant, I knew exactly what I wanted. GRILLED CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD (NO DRESSING). At my wife's suggestion I added two lemon wedges to give the salad some extra flavor. It is amazing how a food that I had no interest in whatsoever a mere six days ago could taste so delicious. Wait, I retract that statement. What is amazing is the laziness and stupidity with regards to eating that I have maintained for many years. I am re-learning all the things I learned 7 years ago when my weight fell from 300lbs to 220lbs. Nothing I can do about the past. According to the Applebee's nutritional information posted on their website, my dinner was a scant 370 calories. (In fact, it was a bit less as I asked that the croutons NOT be included in my dinner.) Eating well on the road, requires some thought and planning - it sure is worth it! TOTAL CALORIC INTAKE TODAY=955. In the 'old days' (you know, December 23, 2014) I could have easily knocked down 955 calories BEFORE lunch! My first official home weigh-in will be January 1. I am looking forward to announcing my initial results in two more days. My belt has already told me that I am making progress.
