A couple of NSV's this week. There was a shower for one of the girls at work, and lots of food and goodies brought in. For the first time ever, I ignored it. Didn't even stop by to browse. It's something I have always struggled with - I have the mentality that I have to do my part to keep that food from going to waste!
And the second NSV is I went to my friend's for dinner (she usually makes something fabulous, but this week she was running behind, and just ordered pizza), and I brought a chocolate pound cake to contribute for dessert. I fully intended to have a half slice, and it would actually have still been within my calorie range for the day. But after having a slice of pizza, I found that I was actually pretty full, and I didn't need the cake. Didn't really want it. So I didn't have it.
These are food Everests for me - walking by "free food" and passing up anything chocolate because I actually felt full (believe me, that never mattered before!)
Before I started this journey, when desirable foods were available and just sitting out there waiting to be eaten, I felt like I MUST have some or I will just die! And yet I'm finding out now that after I have walked by them and dismissed them, I don't spend any time sitting around dreaming about that chocolate cake I could have had. No regrets at all.
Isn't that funny?
