I fought the chinese buffet and I won

I went to lunch today with a coworker and it had been several months since his last trip to the local chinese buffet so I went along because he was driving. In the past I would make at least 2 trips, often 3 to the buffet. Today I made 2 trips. The first was to the salad bar. I had some salad that consisted of iceberg lettuce, some shredded carrots with roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons of ranch dressing. I also had some cantaloupe, a hard boiled egg, maybe a cup of red grapes and a couple california rolls. The 2nd trip was the toughest. I had 1 egg roll, 1 crab rangoon and 1/2 cup roughly of a chicken and shrimp with vegetables in brown sauce dish. I did finish the meal with a fortune cookie and only had water to drink the entire time.
Normally I would eat a couple helpings of General Tso's Chicken with a bunch of white rice and 5 or 6 crab rangoon as well as a pile of lo mein noodles.
I'll be returning to the buffet in just 2 weeks as I have a monthly meeting there so I hope I will be as good then as I was today.

UPDATE - I forgot to mention that my coworker was nice enough to pay for lunch because he saw how good I was trying to be. Thank you.
