Calories and Fast Food

I am curious to know how many of you (I don't really have many readers lol), when eating out, would order Fast Food, and it eat if you knew how many calories were in your meal? I have been doing my homework on this and it's eye opening!

So, if you knew how many calories you were about to consume would you still order it?

    Hello My Friend! Was ya wonderin if I had fallen off the face of the planet? I haven't, but just crazy busy - in a good way! I liked your question. To be honest, I've never been on a diet where I counted calories. I have either been on low-fat or no sugar/low carb. In both of those situations I always ordered salad and diet coke or water. As much as I should be dieting/changing my eating lifestyle right now, I am not and honestly the convenience of eating out or the "hankering for something specific" usually rules my decision making, not the calorie count. To give you hope, I am planning to go back to my Sugar-Busters really soon. My meds for all my issues have finally seemed to kick-in and I am doing really good physically, except for the sinus infection I just came out of (took 2 shots)! Other-wise I think that I am ready physically, mentally and spiritually to get back to creating a healthy eating lifestyle! You are such an inspiration to me in your commitment to exercise! I wish I were there to do so with you! Graham did get wagon for Christmas and now that the weather is warming up I am planning to walk the boys everyday in our neighborhood. I have already done so a couple of times and because one there is a slight incline to our streets, when I pull them up-hill it really works my legs and arms. I felt it the following days both times I did it. Anyway, stay the course, keep pressing on and know you and your precious family are in my thoughts and prayers!

    Shannon, I wish you were here too!
    I have recently met two of my neighbors who I have talked into walking with me. We are becoming friends, something I really want and need!

    You have been through a lot girl!

    Exercise is so much easier when you have an accountability partner.

    As far as eating out. We rarely do, but, if we do I always check the calories's amazing how how fast you can get to 1200-1500 calories and go over! Especially when I am not paying attention.
