I really can't believe that I turned down a piece of birthday cake and ice cream. That is why I show up for birthday parties. Not really, but it sure was a BONUS! So while waiting for the goodies, I began to think that I could have those items, which I knew would not fill me up after my limited dinner OR I could go home and have some popcorn which is much healthier and filling for me. The world did not come to an end, I am not going through a mourning period and I survived.
I am really coming to terms that even though I am eating within points, there are some foods that I eat out of habit and although I like it, it is taking away valuable points that could be used on better foods. Case in point, I love those Quaker Mini Rice Cakes - Mint Delights 2 points and I would pack them in my lunch every day during the week. Doesn't matter that I was full or tight on points, I would eat them anyway. So I don't plan on buying them at this time so I can find other goodies! So far so good, although I do miss them.
I always worried about having enough food to eat so I would not have a diabetic reaction or in case of, which happened alot the first time I lost weight. Now I make sure I have enough glucose tablets and watch my medication closely so I can reduce when necessary, instead of eating. Did I mention prior to sparkpeople that I loved having reactions because it was a great excuse for a candy bar! No more.
