I so get it. I was at a friend's for dinner Monday eve and she offered wine and I said yes to a half glass only as I knew that I'd be over my calories with the meal anyway and decided to manage with the alcohol intake. It feels so good doesn't it?
I know people who can have a candy dish sitting on the coffee table and let them go stale. I would never let that happen, even if I had to ration them daily. Chuckle.
Thanks so much for the support! My boyfriend was actually super supportive-- I felt a little rude saying that I'd already eaten because I didn't want him to think I was unappreciative, but he totally understood.
If roles had been reversed and I had brought something for him and he had refused, I would had been overly sensitive and had my feelings hurt! I'm so glad he was so understanding :)
Thanks again everyone! :)

JH21164, Wow! That was a biggie! I am so curious: How did your boyfriend respond? He is familiar with a different response, so to get this new response, well, I can only imagine his was totally surprised. Really, I am so impressed by you! You are destined for great success.

Way to go! It's great that you're consciously thinking about where you are with regards to your calories for the day before digging in.
I am not usually one to brag about accomplishments, but I said no to my biggest trigger food tonight.....pizza! My boyfriend brought home my favorite pizza as a surprise tonight but I'd already tracked/eaten my calories for the day and had even brushed my teeth! I said a big thank you to make sure I sounded grateful and promised I'd plan for it and have some for dinner tomorrow. Before joining this site I would've chowed down on a few slices regardless of the fact I'd already eaten dinner! Feeling very proud at the moment :)
Hope everyone else is having a wonderful day, as well!
