Okay. I can truly say for the last 30 days I have stayed on "spot" (stayed within my calorie limit, exercised every day, read food labels, and resisted temptations). However, today I decided I was going to "treat" myself. I took myself to Ruby Tuesdays and had a bacon cheeseburger (no fries and half a hamburger roll). I had the salad bar and tried to steer clear of the obvious no-nos but I'm sure the calories were more than I should have had. So, while I didn't go completely crazy and didn't have one of their marvelous desserts, my calories were well over what they should have been. So, was it worth it? I would have to say "no." Not when I think about all the hard work I have put into being healthy and making better choices and that big lump I feel in my stomach. It was immediate gratification and I have gotten it out of the way. Its really weird but I feel I can stop myself next time cuz as good as that burger tasted, it isn't worth it. The point is, I now fully realize that to reach my goal of permanent good health, I can NEVER go back to having a cheeseburger without realizing how bad it is for me.
