Yesterday we went to Texas Roadhouse for my husband's birthday dinner. I can never understand why restaurant booths are so small. You'd think that a good amount of the restaurant's business comes from overweight people. But yet, the booths are so small that they are hard to fit in if you are pretty overweight. I know that a lot of people probably would never think of this. They probably just go ahead and sit down in the booth, not thinking twice about how they'll feel once seated, or if they'll even be able to fit in the booth. But, that's been a concern of mine for quite a long time. Texas Roadhouse is one of the restaurants that I've had issues with in the past. I've previously had to ask the server to please get us a different table because I can't fit in their booths. It's really embarrassing, to say the least. Last night as our hostess was walking us to our table I dreaded it when she headed the way of all of the booths. In my head thinking, I would be so incredibly uncomfortable all dinner. Or that I wouldn't fit in the booth. But, as I sat down I noticed something. I actually fit in the booth, with two inches (which is big for me!) of space between my stomach and the table! I wasn't uncomfortable at all. I was actually really comfortable. I'm so incredibly excited about that and it makes me want to keep going more and more!!
That's not the only non-scale victory that I've had in the past 24 hours though. After making my husband the most delicious cake known to man, we had our servings last night for his birthday and then today I took the leftovers to our neighbor across the street. Goodbye temptations. I'm stronger than you cake! So, it's been a pretty great last couple of days as far as non-scale victories go! I look forward to seeing more in the months to come!
