Succumbing to Chinese Food
I have done my best-except for the LA food orgy-to stay away from foods that cause me to lose control so I've not had any ice cream or Chinese food. Until last night. My husband convinced our friends that THEY wanted to go for Chinese food. I did not order well-had no intention of ordering well. Once I was inside the restaurant confronted with the extensive menu of deliciously dangerous foods, I gave in, gave up and let loose. Fried food. Sauced food. Had them all. Noodles. Oh, halo for me. I passed on the white rice! I indulged but did not overindulge. Could have shoved a bit more food down the gullet but stopped way short of my limit. No guilt. It was delicious. But I know it will come back to haunt me at weigh in later in the week. We're talking about a lot of calories. A lot. Worth every one of them, though. That was good food!
