That is so awesome!! You're kicking serious butt! I know how hard it is when your go-to snack isn't really an option anymore. You did so good! emoticon

Yesterday was the first time I've been proud of myself in almost 3 years. It was the first day on my weight-loss plan and I stuck with it and exceeded my expectations. Gave myself a nice pat on the back for that one!

Awesome, that is great you are reading labels and practiced great strength to put them back and leave store without them. All these steps lead to great success. I am proud of you too. emoticon

The last time I felt really proud of myself was last week when I went to the Supermarket for eggs and milk. On my way into the store I had the thought that I could buy Oreos, and make up individual sized serving bags to have on hand for snacks. I read the label and aw that THREE cookies was 140 calories and a high degree of fat. Then I looked at popcorn and it was also 140 calories per serving and high fat. I looked at several other things and ALL of them were high in fat and calories. At the checkout, I was feeling a little sorry for myself so thought I would buy a small pack of M & M's. I read the label on that, as well. It was 230 calories and very high in fat. I put the pack back on the shelf, paid for my milk and eggs and left the store. When I got home, I treated myself to a cup of seedless grapes and savored the sweetness of each one! I was SO VERY PROUD OF MYSELF for making good choices. There is NO WAY I could ever eat just THREE Oreos or just ONE CUP of popcorn, and I was able to recognize this before I bought these things. Maybe one day I will be able to eat just three Oreos. It is perhaps a goal for myself. All things in moderation!
