One way I've been losing weight... (204.6) - Mark's Journal
One way I've been losing weight... (204.6)

Maybe I should've figured it out a long time ago, but a strategy I adopted to save money has also been saving me lots of calories. This fall, I've mostly been buying whole subs instead of half subs when I eat at Louie's Lunch, and saving half for another meal. They're $7.55 including tax instead of $6, so for less than $2 more, I'm getting two meals instead of one.

The MavenTurns out the whole subs are 12 inches, and the "half" subs are 8 inches. So, each time I do this, I've been eating 3/4 of the lunch I was eating previously. As sure as I am that I could finish the whole foot-long sandwich every day without difficulty, I'm sure that a half of it is plenty for me.

I'm also eating more lightly at other meals, and hardly ever eating out means I'm doing a lot less overeating at restaurants, too. Combine that with all the walking Penny and I are doing, and it's a reliable recipe for graduate weight loss.

And ...

... restaurant meals are pretty much guaranteed to be higher in fats and calories in general, which is what makes them so tasty, but yeah, less than healthy most times.

Good job - keep on going ! :-)
