This may seem really small, but to me, it is a HUGE deal!!!!
2 victories in 1 meal -
I decided to have some oatmeal as lunch. Growing up, we'd use the instant oatmeal. We'd boil water on the stove and mix it in with the dried oats. Well..... today I decided to make it in the microwave..... using milk. I found this makes it fluffier and makes it look like you have a LOT in your bowl. So, I normally have 3 - 3 1/2 pkgs (which would be about 480 calories, using the flavored oatmeal - this not including extra sugar and butter), today, I only made one pack and it filled me up. Including the milk in the oatmeal and the milk I drank and the oatmeal itsself - it was only 270 calories... this is HUGE to me!!!
ALSO - I normally add in brown sugar, butter, and salt..... today... I didn't add anything. This is also huge considering that I always have to have that extra sugar in there..... and to tell you the truth, it was more flavorful today then when I add all the other stuff.
Though I haven't seen a change on the scale yet (I think me being on anti-depressants is hindering the weight loss a bit) - I feel so good about being able to make better decisions....
