    Ok - so what would the old you have chosen to eat on a lunch/evening out versus what the new you chooses now? Not talking about special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries etc as we all know that we spoil ourselves a bit then.... but everyday times....

    Yesterday I went out to Pizza Express for lunch with work colleagues:

    The old me: Garlic Bread, Pizza (or pasta with creamy sauce) and then a choc pudding!

    The new me: Aubergine, in a tomotoe sauce with a cheese topping (and I called SW for the syn value - 20). The old me would have turned up nose at Aubergine!

    Oooh great thread! I would have had a whole pizza, onion rings, potato wedges, dips and maybe some garlic bread to go with it!

    Now I wouldn't even be able to LOOK at that amount of food!

    they had a 'bring some food in' night last night at WI, we have a few new men in our group and one of them didnt quite understand the concept and brought in some Yum Yums from the bakers and ordered a massive pizza to be delivered to WI.............apparently everyone had a slice, well its only polite after all lol

    bless him

    Old me when eating Italian would go for creamy/cheesy sauces. New me prefers tomato or loads of roast veg sauce. My tastes have definitely changed and I can really tell if there's oil in something as it coats my lips.

    Indian - used to get creamy mild curry but now prefer tandoori chicken or veggie based curry. still like my nan though!!

    Old me.. Chinese

    Spare ribs, fried rice, spring roll and probably some other dish all washed down with prawn crackers

    New me.. Chinese

    Boiled rice, 1/2 a chicken chow mein.


    Old me would definately have eaten a potion of chippy chips yesterday with a battered sausage as well as the Mcflurry I had

    Wonder what the turning poitn is that we all hit that all of a sudden we are automatically choosing better options?? I sometimes wander over to the sandwich counter in Tescos and just contemplate what sandwich i might buy, then walk away and have ryvita and laughing cow instead - it's the feeling of control that i can walk away I think

    At the mexican:
    Old me: Nachos with cheese (Loads) and vegi chilli - Starter
    Vegi combo (more vegi chilli) with rice - Main
    Cheesecake
    Plus about 6 cocktails

    New me:
    Vegi chilli with rice
    Fruit salad
    2 cocktails (I am still a work in progress!!!!)

    I find the nachos are to greasy now I don't like the taste anymore (and they were my fav :eek:)
