My goal was no second helpings and I just about, almost, but not quite, made it. I was cleaning out the refrigerator and I found a container with 2 pumpkin tarts that my daughter had baked for dessert last Sunday. Sunday was our 41st wedding anniversary and 3 of my daughters had cooked dinner for us. Anyway, I ate both of them after supper tonight. But I made it all day until then, and I only drank water (no sweet tea) and only ate my pre-planned snacks. So I'm going to count this day a success.
The weekends are always challenging. Usually I head into Saturday expecting to overeat all weekend and then try to make up for it on Monday. This weekend my goal is to stick with my previous 3 goals and hold on to that success. I don't want to think, "Okay, I met that goal today. I"m glad that's over," and then go right back to my old ways. I want to take this slowly enough that the goals become a way of life for me. So no new teeny tiny goals for the next couple of days.
