Last night, my husband and went out to see Fight Club play at a local movie theater. Every Wednesday and Sunday (each week) they show a classic movie on the big screen, this week that movie was Fight Club... One of my all my FAVORITE movies! So we obviously HAD to go!!!
The movie was at 7:00 pm, and I ate around 5:15 or so. I thought that would last me until I came home to eat my last planned meal of the day. But about halfway through the movie I was STARVING! Maybe it had something to do with tons of people enjoying their movie theater heavily buttered popcorn... I wanted to go buy some, but I have stayed away from all movie theater snacks since early 2011, and do not plan to go down that road again! Especially since my husband and I go to the movies ALL THE TIME. It would not be good to want snacks again...
By the time the movie ended and we were on our way home my stomach was growling so loud, and I was very temped to have my husband take me through a drive through. Thankfully, we didn't have long before we were home. While I was making my dinner, I had 7 saltines and a piece of Kraft American Cheese, and a single serving bag of Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips. And that somehow was enough to hold me over until I ate my dinner within 30 minutes or so.
I thought for sure since I was so hungry pre-eating that I'd end up wanting more and more food, and what I made wouldn't be enough. But once again, somehow it was enough, and I didn't eat again for the rest of the night.
I stayed up for a couple of more hours watching Weeds on Netflix, and finally went to bed a little after midnight. Coming in still within where I wanted to be for the day calorie wise!
And when I weighed in today, I saw that I've already lost 2 lbs of the 8 lb gain!!! So that was awesome to see...
Beating your hunger can be really hard, and sometimes the hunger wins and we binge. Last night, while I was starving I thought about you guys on SP, because if I went off the wagon and gained weight back I'd have to come here and be honest with you all. I also thought about, that if I ate more that I wouldn't see the scale go down today and it may possibly go up... I knew 100% that I did NOT want that. I have found that forcing myself to think about my program on SP when all I want to do is eat really helps me to not overeat!
Another reason to be thankful to SP and all it's given to me...
I'm wishing you all a very Happy Thursday!!!
Stay happy & healthy!!!
