I forgot I something very important that happened yesterday at my Christmas party.
1. I had taken a roll that I thought looked the healthiest. However- it really did not taste good at all. SO.... I didn't eat it. I put on my finished salad plate. Instead my Aunt gave me half of her wheat roll.
2. The other thing that was a very big victory for me was the desserts.
a small slices of a variety of desserts were brought to the table on two plates. while I did have 2.5 desserts that is all I had> Now that is not the victory. The victory was in not taking any home. Which I could have done very easily. On top of the easy- it could have been done without anyone knowing. - an even bigger victory. outside of our reception room was a nice large lobby where they had a coffee station set up. coffee- whip topping, chocolate and kinds of stuff to add. ( I love REAL whip cream- and I didn't have any of that either) also on the table was several other desert plates and cookies. with napkins. I could have wrapped up quite a few and put them in my purse without anyone I knew seeing me. I DIDN'T TAKE ONE.
The old me would have probably taken 4 or 5 of them home with me. And on top of that 3 of them would have been eaten in the car before I got home.
I feel proud of myself and not deprived one little bit.
(that is my gold star for resisting major overload)
