    I did something really hard today...

    I'm sure some of you can sympathize. My daughter got her braces off today (she's excited and my wallet is excited) so I took her out to lunch to celebrate before taking her back to school. We decided to go to Pieology (newish pizza chain near us) because she had never been and was very excited to try it out.

    I got some sort of pizza concoction and it was delicious... and I put 1/4 of it back in the box and brought it home. A full pie is about 950 kcal, so I wasn't doing anything crazy like putting HALF back, but man I wanted it!



    That is all, nothing momentous nor worth dignifying.

    I'm trying to picture myself putting pizza in a box instead of my mouth… and I'm not seeing it. Good job on the self control.

    Good job. I always order a pizza thinking I'm going to save half of it, which I normally do... for about an hour.

    I knew it! I always laugh when I see anything labeled "personal" in the pizza department. They're all personal to me. I have to stay away.

    The way I see it, delicious stuff is meant to be eaten. Who am I to disrupt the nature of things?

    You have way more self control than I do.

    A year ago I could eat as much as the "Man Versus Food" guy.

    Nowdays I just don't even start. The first bite is my weakness.

    Same here. I put it in the fridge but even more than pizza, I lovecold pizza! My wife gets home at 10 pm and is always hungry. She always asks, " You want a piece of pizza with me?" Ah, duh! Of course I do!

    I just opened a bottle of wine. I offered half to my wife. She's not a wino. I'll put the rest in the fridge.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    LMAO. My wife, on the other hand... poured the rest of the chardonnay we were drinking into my glass so she could go open a malbec she wanted to try.

    No rest for the wicked!

    I had the same test at work this week. Somebody decided we needed a team building lunch...complete with box after box of pizza. So instead of my pastrami and Swiss sandwich, I somehow managed the willpower to take a single slice of buffalo chicken pizza and a cup of diet Pepsi and walk away from the pizza table. You are right...that was hard. But we did it...right?

    I get a personal pizza, cut in half so I can take one half home, then I eat the other half. As soon as I finish eating half, I realize, I ate the half that was supposed to go home, and there sits the half that is supposed to be eaten at the restaurant. You can't throw away perfectly good pizza.......

    Great job!
    Seems like it's time for an Eddy Merckx quote. "It's not the hills, it's the cake" Or in this case pizza.

    You got me beat. That never would have happened at my table. I was brought up to believe you have to eat everything on your plate. I went one step further and eat everything on the table. Hate to waste good food.

    Whenever we have pizza we get a large, and after the 3 of us eat, there's usually half of it available for me to take for lunch for a few days. I don't think I've ever eaten an entire pizza by myself, except maybe when I was a kid and got one of those personal pan pizzas at Pizza Hut (like, 4 very small thin crust pizzas).

    Same goes for when we have Subway, I usually get the 12" cold cut combo and only eat one half the day I get it, sans the top roll.

    How on earth are you able to maintain your Clyde status with such delicate eating habits?

    I used to go to subway a lot but stopped when I found out what they were putting in their bread. if they put preservatives in their fresh, baked daily bread lord only knows what they're doing to that meat.

    Well done on the pizza discipline though.

    I actually lost my Clyde status last summer, I was only 230 when I started but badly out of shape. I'm still slow so I still lurk in these forums now and then. My biggest problem was a Pepsi addiction, I relied on the caffeine in that stuff for the energy kick. That and being extremely inactive. Working twilight shifts, classes/studying and sleeping during the day didn't leave much time for exercise.

    I never thought about the preservatives going into the ingredients at Subway, but it's not alarming since all "cheap" foods regardless of where you find it, will have some kind of preservatives. Probably still healthier than whatever McDonald's passes off as food though. I quit eating there when I started seeing rat feces everywhere at my nearby McDonalds. It was disgusting, who knows how much was in the back area, I reported them to DOH and they did a full report and found it to be a clean restaurant - what gives? The excrement on the tables a floors didn't put up any red flags?

    Yeah, but it was some sort of rubber preservative that is used in things like yoga mats. Blech.

    As for your rat issue, if the health inspectors find anything WHILE THEY'RE THERE then presto license yanko. My wife and I owned a food establishment with some partners and you didn't have to miss very much at all to get knocked down to a B. Maybe it's different in your area. I will tell you that I worked at a McDs when I was a teenager and that place sparkled about as much as a place that fries everything can sparkle. There can be a noticeable difference between company stores and franchised stores, and of course, that was 30 years ago. I don't eat at McDonalds anymore for lots of other reasons and seeing any rat poop would do it for me too.

    I have done this on occasion but it takes an INCREDIBLE effort! Congrats on doing this, if only we could make it a habit!

    A hit that I heard from somewhere is that when eating out get a to-go box RIGHT AWAY and put half of your meal in it before you even start. I am going to try and do that more often.
