I've been following the menu plan in the Spark Solution book this week ... with a few modifications. They really pack in the vegetables which is awesome. It also means I get to eat a lot more food since those vegetable are not very high in calories. Yesterday an interesting thing happened. I was eating my planned lunch and I realized I was full before I finished eating my lunch. What??? Aren't I usually feeling hungry when I watch what I eat?
Well, I wrapped up the rest of my lunch and put it in the refrigerator for later. Then when I was fixing dinner and that old habit of wanting to munch while I cooked dinner tried to tempt me, I got out my lunch leftovers to keep me satisfied. No reaching for those convenient items that are a nutrition nightmare. No wrecking my eating plan without thinking. I felt so empowered. I can do this! Thanks Spark People for another awesome resource!
