As others have said, I'm surprised that I enjoy exercise. I never, ever thought that I would.

I'm surprised that I have no trouble passing up candy. There is candy in my house constantly, especially around this time of year, and I don't even think about it.

I'm surprised that it's not harder to eat less. I plate a portion, eat it, and I'm done.

I'm surprised that I love greek yogurt. I always thought I didn't like yogurt.

The same goes for some other foods. I'm surprised I like peppers. I used to pick them off of things; now I add them and think "a good way to get more veggies!"

I'm surprised that I've managed to pack my lunch nearly every single work day for the past 2.5 months, and that it became routine many weeks ago. I used to get take out for lunch nearly every day.
