Learning to have willpower
Saturday, March 27, 2010
Well today was another test of my willpower and I have to say I did great! I went to lunch with a good friend and we went to this bbq place that I'd never been to before. I allowed myself to have a couple of ribs, since that's why we went there, but while looking at all the "sides" to choose from, the old me would've gone for french fries or potato salad or something like that... well today, my willpower stuck! I chose my two sides, one was corn on the cob and the other was green beans! I don't think I have ever ordered healthy sides at a restaurant before (as bad as that sounds)! And, knowing that I had to allow for the extra calories in the ribs, the other sides would've added a ton more calories on top of it and I wasn't willing to do it!!
Temptation is a crazy thing! I REALLY wanted potato salad and kept looking at it on the menu. But, thanks to my friends here on SP, and my new found, strong willpower, I overcame the temptation and did the right thing! Yay me!!
Thanks to all of you who, with all the encouragement and support, are helping me help myself to find the strength and willpower to make the smart choices!!
