There's a difference now....

Monday, July 22, 2013

The family has gone home after a whirlwind weekend of fun and visiting. This morning I dreaded getting on the scales b/c I expected to be UP A LOT in weight. But no, I wasn't, which lead me to think about why not? After all, I ate Italian bread, cookies, potato chips, cake and ice cream! Well, I know why not! B/c now, eating ONE slice of Italian bread is a splurge...not 1/2 a loaf as before!!! 3 cookies is HUGE now, whereas before, I would have eaten the entire batch. A thin slice of cake with ice cream is "over the top" now, whereas before I would have eaten 2 large slices with big gobs of ice cream (and finished it off during the night!!!!). In addition, I now "temper" my meal if I know I'm going to have dessert!

And so, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO grateful to be where I am. Nope, things are not perfect and I still have to watch what I eat, fight off cravings, and continue to exercise...but oh how wonderful to be where I am in my journey instead of where I was!!! So SparkFriends...onward I go.....if it is to be, it is up to me....
