Thursday, and Success!


Yesterday was a true test of my commitment. I ate good all day... great breakfast, great lunch, and planned ahead for a healthy dinner. Well, yesterday I somehow lost my phone.. and was all freaked out about it. So when I got home I asked my husband if he wanted to go out to dinner and get me a new phone. He, of course, was game.


We went to a really nice seafood restaurant so I looked at the menu and saw that they had an appetizer of coconut shrimp (my absolute favorite and of course not so healthy). I couldn't find anything else that I really wanted so I ordered the shrimp. I ate a couple bites of my husbands salad, a roll (I still can eat bread at night, weird) and 3 of my shrimp and one tiny redskin potato. That was it... and I was happy. Usually when we go out to eat, I have a hard time not using that as an excuse to eat whatever and however much I want. Again, another scale reward this morning. I was down another 1.6 lbs!


Today I had a good breakfast, and got into work with my lunch (I work 12:30 pm- 9:00 pm) and forgot about the department taco bar. So I decided I would have two tacos. One of my co-workers made turkey taco meat so I had that on whole wheat shells. I added my toppings (including sour cream and guac) and ate one taco. I assessed how I felt and realized I was satisfied. I am not hungry so I am not eating anymore. This is huge for me. I have always been so focused on counting points or calories that I haven't been tuned into my own hunger.


Only one more work day this week... sadly we are open tomorrow! Happy Celebrating for those who are celebrating! And here's to a great rest of the week!

Score! That's great, I think our bodies really do try to tell us things, we've just forgotten how to listen. That's something I really need to work on.

That sounds like an ultra-victorious post! But I need to know...the turkey taco...can you tell the difference with the meat?

Gilly,
My Lap Band doctor does not allow beef (in any form) until you are 6 months out.. so all I ate for 6 months (and still) is ground turkey. I don't think you can tell but I am not a very good person to ask since it has been SO long since I had beef.

Satisfied is a hard concept for us obese eaters. We have taco night about once a week and I've gone from 5 to one (love using the Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream for more protein). Hope tomorrow goes fast and you have a great sunny weekend!
