So I got a haircut yesterday and my stylist said I looked as if I've lost weight! ME? But my jeans and shirt were a bit baggy. So I got on the scale this morning and still had lost the 5 lbs I lost earlier and not gained it back. So I thought, there is hope for me yet in spite of not being vigilant in the diet department.
With the Sonoma DIet, when you learn to eat the healthy way with portion control and plate size, then you start making healthier choices at each meal. I am more aware of looking at the whole menu and making the best choice. Today I stopped at Hardee's to use the bathroom and decided to get a sandwich as it was lunch time. I looked over the menu carefully and selected the 1/4 lb thick cheese burger with added veggies and no onion and an unsweet tea to drink. Okay, that wasn't a bad choice. At least I had protein and veggies so I was happy with that.
That is what I liked about the Sonoma Diet before, the careful selection of what you ate. ANd if you eat enough, you won't be hungry. Last night I was home alone and the klondike bars were calling me from the freezer. However, I knew that I wasn't really hungry and if I ate one, it would be out of boredom and not hunger so I didn't eat one! That was a goodie.
Tonight we are going to dinner at the Yacht Club and I'm very familiar with their menu so I'll choose wisely. And I always have a salad with oil and vinegar anyway. So I guess I can say, I think I can do this. My new friend FORME55 has been reading the Sonoma Diet book so I have it next to my chair and I hope to start reading it more and applying the principles.
Can you belive that Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks away? INcredible. Looking forward to the weekend. Later.
