Proud of Myself
Tuesday, November 02, 2010
I feel quite accomplished today. I had a 'dreaded' family dinner last night. These events always make me nervous, because I normally stop eating around 4 in the afternoon to give my food time to digest before I go to bed. I also get cravings when I eat late at night, so I've figured out that's it's just easier to stop eating before all the madness starts. It's been going well now that it's become a habit.
Well, we had one of those special family occasions, and I had to go to dinner with them last night. The last time we had one, I opted to skip out on it rather than face the temptation. This time, I said I would eat lighter during the day, and save some calories for that evening meal. Well, it was a little tough not to eat what I wanted to during the day, but I stuck to my plan. I ate a lite dinner last night, and even had some dessert. I said I would be proud of myself, no matter what the scale said this morning because I stuck to the game plan. I even put the fork down when I started getting that full feeling -- before my dessert was finished.
Lo and behold, I had actually lost weight this morning. Go figure. Like I said, it wasn't about the weight, but that was a nice bonus. I feel like I've broken through a mental barrier. I couldn't be happier!
