I have "taco no shell" (Taco Bell) as one of my MFP foods. The McDonald's side salad is perfect for me. So is Wendy's chili or half salad. Fazoli's will put grilled chicken on a side salad. There are bad options in the grocery store as well as the drive up. Does that mean I should never buy groceries again?
I think at a certain point in the process, you know what you are capable of and what will put you over the edge. And then maybe fast food and restaurants aren't so scary.
But at less than two months out, I would not advise the OP to try the drive through.
YES the grocery store was a HUGE no no for me after surgery. Numerous times I had to tell my hubs that he had to do the shopping because I didn't trust myself to stay away from all the crap that I knew I could buy, eat in the car, and/or hide for later. If I didn't have the hubs, I would've called my mom to shop for me or with me, but I knew I could not go in that place alone.
Honestly, even now, the thought still crosses my mind at the grocery store to do that kind of thing, but I can tell myself no without a major internal struggle. Same as making good choices at the drive through. Its just about knowing yourself.
