Woo-hoo! My first time eating out at a sit-down restaurant since I started my diet and I did fabulously. Strange that I haven’t eaten out before now. I guess I really don’t have much of a social life :) Notably, this was also the first time I actually ate all the food I ordered at the time I ordered it. No leftovers and no doggy bags. No doubt this is because we skipped the bread and I went for the 9oz steak cut when I previously would have gone for the 12oz. I also had a great salad with blue cheese vinaigrette dressing (Note to self: must buy this dressing. Yummy.) and a side dish of steamed vegetables. Honestly, I wasn’t enthusiastic about ordering the vegetables as I would have much rather preferred the fries or fried mushrooms, but the veggies were better for me and blah, blah, blah I didn’t really mind that much.
Also, I fit in the booth with at least 3 inches to spare :) It truly is the small things in life. Pun sort of intended.
