And when I count calories and write down what I eat, this is what happens:

I plan things. I stop and think before I cut another piece of cheese. Before going to a pot luck lunch (in my honour), I plan what I will eat (1/2 a slice of Ida's lasagna, tons of my healthy green salad, some kale salad, skip the nacho dip and chips, bring my own home-made calorie free ice tea, eat a very tiny breakfast so I can have the gluten free dessert they bought me, skip the bbq'd chicken and the big white dinner rolls). And I plan for what to eat after (home-made 200 cal. veg soup and grilled asparagus with 9 rice crackers.

And then, THIS is what happens, I hit day 2 totally and easily on track.

    And as you practice planning you will be able to make good decisions when things go crazy because you know the steps of stopping, evaluating, and deciding wisely.

Great Job!
