"Budgeting for the Belly"

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Thank God for moms :) Mine lives in the apartment attached to my house. Tonight she surprised the kids with pizza since my husband was working late and she wanted to spare me another night of cooking! What a dear :)

...And what a test! My brain just doesn't "know when to say 'when' " in regards to pizza...
But tonight, I actually stopped at two pieces, and I stayed within my calorie limit for the day.
Know what helped? Before I ate it, I tracked all my food for the day and found out what I could afford. You might say, it's like budgeting. If the calories aren't there, we can't afford to spend them, right? (Love, love, LOVE that tracking device on SP!)

The leftoevers sure do look good, but I'm looking beyond them at the "me" that I want to see this summer... I'd rather have my goal than a bit of chewy, cheesy, salty hot goodness... (OH, I have to stop thinking about this!)

Thank you, Spark People!! Your program works! emoticon

    Pizza is my downfall! I think I'm going to have to ban it from my diet forever if I can't get stopped at no more than 2 pieces. It seems to fuel my cravings and I wind up eating all kinds of other things after I have the pizza!

    Pizza is a big temptation for me. That is my one food that I refuse to ever give up. I am so glad you counted and tracked calories, knowing you could have two slices and STOPPED at that.
