Yes, most of my close friends know I am doing SB. The TOPS group know too but they always go to this one mexican which is not very SB friendly. I may get the steak & beans again that includes a salad.
The friend I go with the most will sometimes go to places like Windy's where I can get chili. I never learned to drive so I have to depend on other or walk to the school cafeteria. They do have some grilled foods sometimes there & plenty of veggies if I can just leave the bad food alone
My fiend takes me to Drs & other places & I will buy her lunch for the gas she spends. She prefers that over money as she seldom cooks. I have had her over for healthy foods I fix. She also is a lot over weight. I tried to get her into SB but just 1 day was all she would do.. she just doesn't want to cook & like to eat bad food to much. The way she does is very bad... she eats anything she wants from Wednesday to Monday. Then Monday & Tuesday she hardly eats or eats things like crackers & PButter & takes a laxative she will have a small loss when we weigh on Tuesday nite. That is something I won't do. I won't eat an apple or something very heavy before I go though. I wish I could get out on my own to find good places to eat. I just cook most of my own at home.
Lunch is my biggest meal. I go to bed very late & usually get up very late so I figure the lighter meal at nite is better for me.
I will cook extra veggies & save some for a snack. I don't have any raw veggies on hand right now except for a little eggpant & okra left from my trip to the farmers market & hard to keep fresh with only getting to shop once or twice a month. I do still have a tomato or 2 left.
IF I eat in the cafateria I can do a takeout.. fill my container as full as I can & make 2 meals off that. Sometimes they don't have a friendly meat so I can get all veggies & fruit then fix my own meat at home. I believe now I can resist the dessert & breads along with the sugar drinks now. I didn't try at first. One bad thing is they cook the best corn fritters & fried okra
I don't think they will care even if I put raw veggies or grapes in my drink cup.
I am determined to make a go of it. I do wish I could see a small loss. I have cut way down on the peanut better as I may have been overdoing that.
Thanks for the reply & ideas,
Starting over again.
