Today I went to put my bagel in the toaster at work and I noticed the little green specs. I had to throw it out. I didn't want to wait until lunch to eat so I ordered breakfast. Two weeks ago I would have ordered a bacon, egg and extra cheese on a long roll. Instead I ordered a farmer's omelette that had bacon, onions, green peppers and tomatoes in it along with some cheese. It also came with home fried potatoes and toast. I orderd the wheat over rye. Two weeks ago I would have ate the ENTIRE thing. Today, I looked at it all and thought how it was way too much food. I ate the omelette, one piece of toast and about a 1/3 of the potatoes and knew to stop. Potato anything is my weakness but I was able to just eat a little of them rather than the whole thing which I was proud of. It is not the big things but the little things that make me realize that I can do this, one step at a time.

    emoticon I only 'tried' to lose weight once in my life. at that time i was a student and rarely cooked at home. The secret to my success was eating half portions. It does make a difference!!!
Keep up the good work and enjoy the journey!!! emoticon
