I won an important battle

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

My weight has settled into the mid-180's. I'm not continuing to lose weight rapidly, but it's not coming right back, either. I figure it's now up to me what happens. And given how much I love to eat and since I cannot ride my bike, I need to be very conscientious about my diet.

I made pizza last night. I pretty much always eat half the pizza, even if I'm not hungry. I love our pizzas. Last night's pizza was particularly delicious: freshly-made dough and pesto, roasted chicken, artichoke hearts, and a combination of mozzarella and parmesan. Muy yummy! I cut it in to quarters, and then cut one quarter into small squares. I then ate those squares slowly, savoring each bite.

It worked! Although I was sorely tempted to have more pizza, I did not. (But it took a couple of otter pops to distract me.) And I had another quarter of the pizza for breakfast this morning. I feel pretty good about saying no to eating the whole damned thing. I hopeful this is a sign of good things to come: my self-discipline is getting a work out!
