I have maintained for two weeks so far and am feeling good that I CAN do it. I have never been able to do this until now. I wake up every day happy with where I am at in life right now.
I looked at the 11 low-cal Halloween Treat slide-show that was featured today. I read through some of the comments. Please do not take offense, but some wrote that they wouldn't be able to stop at the serving size so they wouldn't eat any. That use to be me. I would say I couldn't do it either. I have now realized I was just setting myself up for failure by saying that. It only made me want that treat more than ever and I wouldn't stop because I already told myself I couldn't. Today, I look at a treat and tell myself I can have a serving (if I choose) and have the control to stop after that serving, unless I choose to have more.
I am finally in control of my eating and pray that I will never go back to where I started my journey at 229 lbs. Everyday is an adventure!
