Not eating popcorn during Medifast?

    I'm a theatre geek, and we have a small community theatre in my town... popcorn is $3 for a new bucket (like... a small from a movie theatre?) and $1 for a refill. I went to see a show today, and even though I was offered popcorn three times (the joys of knowing the people who work there) I RESISTED!.

    I also went to a baby shower on Thursday evening, and managed to bypass the fresh fruit (which is HARD to get up here in AK and expensive) and the amazing chicken wings. I just nibbled on a little bit of raw broccoli..

    Finishing day 5 now - down 6.2 pounds..

    I usually bring the puffs (still have 2 bags left) or pretzels as my snack at a movie..

    Popcorn is my favorite food in the world. I've been making a joke that on the day I reach Onederland, I'm going to set aside a three-hour period in which I will eat nothing but popcorn continuously - buttered, caramel, cheese, you name it. Funny thing is, the closer I get, the more confident I am that I would not really do that. Lol. Right now I'm at our beach house alone (DH had to work this weekend) and for the second day in a row, a small back of potato chips he got with a sandwich and didn't eat (can you imagine?) has been staring me down with a vengeance. I walked two miles first thing this morning, and now I'm going to settle in with a shake and a book for a while.

    And I'm going to win..

    Well, I have an advantage that both of the theatres in town (live action and movie) don't use the "butter" that most movie theatres do (well, was previously an advantage). The movie theatre uses real butter and the play-theatre doesn't use butter at all. You get to add your own salt or other flavoring, but that's it..

    The only puff-type things I have are the cheesy pizza bites, and while they're okay, I didn't think they'd quite cut it. I had my choc mint crunch bar, and decided that my splurge would be a Diet Coke from the concession stand (12 oz can)..

    LiKeMeNoW - good luck with the potato chips! My DF keeps getting the munchies at night and having pretzels, and they smell good... but I resist!.
