So its mid morning and I am hungry so I decide it snack time. I wander into the kitchen and look in the fridge deciding what to have. So I find a string cheese, okay not bad 80 calories however I know that it wont be that satisfying or last very long, so I pull out my favorite bread, San Juan Island 9 grain and have a piece of toast with the smallest slather of marj (less than 1/2 a serving) which is more calories however with the fiber in it and the amount of "chew satisfaction" I know it will keep me happy till lunch and is a better choice for me.
A couple of months ago I would have grabbed the open frosting container one of my kids stuck in the fridge, or rummaged for some chocolate, or worse. I find this a good advancement for me as I have very poor will power and when under stress I eat. I am trying to keep better choices up eye level and poor choices out of site which helps a lot. If I don't see it I am less likely to think it up myself.
Yeah for me!
