Nothing Tastes Better Than a Good Choice!

Friday, October 18, 2013

Late work night tonight -- after a late (healthy salad) lunch about 2 pm, didn't get supper until after 8. But: did not stop on the way home for fast food. Told myself that hunger is not an emergency. Told myself that feeling hungry is normal and slim people feel hungry every day.

Waited, had my sweet potato black bean soup. With about an ounce of old cheddar cheese, a moderate glass of red wine. And some strawberries with a small quantity of low fat ice cream.

OK then. It was delicious!! Because (all together now): "Nothing tastes better than a good choice!"

    WW has a saying nothing tastes better than thin feels. Same type of a statement but I like yours better.

That soup was probably your plan. Postponing immediate gratification for something much better later is an easier decision to make. Temptation is easier to deny when you have something luscious waiting for you at home.

    What a great mantra. Nothing tastes better than a good choice. I will use it. Wow. Great job on holding off from buying food and waiting to eat at home late at night t
Tje best thing is that you had a delicious meal that you truly enjoyed. What a great non scale victory. You are a wonderful maintainer.

My current mantra which is not as positive as ..a watched eliptical never moves. Sometimes those minutes do no move fast enough.

    Bad choices make me feel bad and cause me to beat myself up mentally. Good choices are much better...for the mind as well as the body! You're a good role model.

    That is a great mantra Ellen! I love that!

I didn't make good choices tonight and I'm kind of really upset with myself about it.

But I have tomorrow to make better choices and really this is a great expression!!

Thank you!
