Yesterday was our Bible study night and we ALWAYS have dessert of some kind during the study. Well, it was not my night to supply the group with dessert so I was a bit nervous it would be something I just couldn't keep myself from pigging out on. When they walked in with two pies for just the 6 of us I had to start reminding myself about my goals and that one night over indulgence is not worth not seeing weight loss on the scale for the week. Well that really worked. I dished myself up a very small (like 1/3 the size of a normal piece) piece of the chocolate pie and decided the other one which was cherry was not worth the calories to me - just not a flavor I'm tempted by much. I ate it and much to my surprise I was extremely satisfied without going back for more - which was quite tempting since there was at least 1/2 of each pie left over. I'm so proud of myself. That is how I should be eating desserts - in small quantities and eating them slowly so I really savor the flavors.
Today was a great day. I ate really healthy and I was full of energy and I feel skinny. It's funny because I know I need to lose some weight but I guess because I've been eating so good and I'm not full of carbs and I'm not bloated with sodium, I FEEL skinny. This is a great feeling.
