Making Progress....Small Steps

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I know I'm making progress. I bought an 8 piece fried chicken from Albertsons, but instead of getting the meal as usual with macaroni salad and potato wedges, I just got chicken only and made mashed potatoes and veggies at home. Didn't take long at all and I saved some calories with mashed potatoes vs. potato wedges, cauliflower vs. macaroni salad. Also I love fried chicken and usually eat at least two pieces. Suddenly these pieces of chicken looked too big to me, so I only ate a wing and 1/2 of as thigh instead of the whole thigh and when I was full, I stopped eating. Normally, I would have cleaned the plate because this is one of my favorite meals. Needless to say, I'm very proud of myself.

    Wow! That is a great feeling isn't it? To be in control and making healthy choices and you will get to enjoy some of your favorite food multiple times as left overs instead of eating it all at once! Congratulations!
