Welcome back!! You can't have a salad as part of your free meal? Can you have the grilled chicken or fruit? There are some healthy options at just about any restaurant now. Good luck to you!!

It's not easy but it can be done. I lost 150 lbs after my weight-loss surgery--and never stopped eating at McDonalds. As others have said, you have to eat only part of the "meal"--I sometimes do 1/4 to 1/2 of the sandwich, sometimes just eat the meat, only eat 2-3 of the fries (just to get a taste, etc.) It's not easy, that's for sure.

Hi there!
Of course you can bring your lunch!
Also can you get the I think broiled chicken sandwich and toss the bread? get no sauce other then what you bring? Bring a salad and mix the chicken in with it?
Fruit? If you work full time how about a little snack also, to help you from getting too hungry. I am sorry about your situation.
Oooh blood clots, are you on Coumidin? My husband is. They founds his lungs loaded with clots. They weren't in his legs either. They have NO idea where they were coming from. This is odd. I hope if you are on meds, you don't fool around with them, clots as I am sure you know can kill you.
Do you have health insurance? Actually it doesn't matter.........you have been under a huge amount of stress this past year. Have you thought of seeing a counselor to help you work through your issues? We all have them!!! Or most people do.You sound depressed too,with good reason. You may want to talk to you regular doctor about the depression. There are many here that also have it. Yes me too.
Remember you have your choices at McDonalds right? or wrong? You don't have to eat all the bread. That chicken (not the fried with crumbs (:) is really good.
It is a nice size piece usually. Hey all you have to do is ask them! If they say no, we will help you come up with other ideas.

Bring your meals to McDonalds. When I worked at a fast food place, that is what I did.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Welcome!

Bring your own meals to work.

Since you've been through a lot you have the strength to turn this around.

I am soooo discouraged. I have been away from SP for a year. I have had so much happen in the past year and it is not all good. I was living in Illinois away from my family. I worked and tried to change jobs and couldn't do it. In July, I moved back home. I ended up working as a manager at McDonalds. In 2006, I had lost 50 pounds, weighing 153. I had to lose this weight because of blood clots in my leg and other medical problems.

After my dad died and having problems with my marriage, I have gradually gained up to 183 pounds. Now I am having problems with my leg again.

I need to start all over again, but it is not going to be easy, having low spirit and working at McDonalds. I get a free meal, but salads are not included in it. I have to eat sandwiches.

Any advice and suggestions. I just feel sooooo low.

LET'S GO FOR IT!!!
