I was so proud of myself tonight, I just had to share.

Then I thought, we should do a thread where you can share your recent triumphs.

Me - I went to the county fair tonight. I had a Beef tenderroast sandwich without bread (heavy on lettuce, and tomato/onion), with a side of fresh veggies.

That's IT!!!

Traditionally, I share a bag of cotton candy with the kids, and split a funnel cake too. Wasn't...even....tempted....


Anyone else? (gosh, I love SB for getting rid of cravings and bad habits!!)

Tonight we went out to eat and I ordered a grilled chicken salad (the only thing on the menu that looked remotely OK) - It came with two pieces of butter and garlic covered bread. - I had to give it to DH right away to put on the far end of the table. I was so hungry and it smelled delicious! - I only ate my salad though!!

Good job ladies! I found an open bag of dark chocolate chips when I was cleaning out my freezer. I ate some on Tuesday, just a few. Yesterday I realized it was too dangerous, so I poured them in the trash. It made me very sad. :( But I am proud of myself. I also took a bite of granola and realized I was going to blow an on-plan day just for one bite of granola, so I spit it in the trash (sorry, grossness). That was when DS was stressing me out over homework.

You all are doing great!!! :grouphug:

Yay for taking charge of your health!!! :cheer2:

Twynn, did you notice that you had so much more emotional/psychological energy to focus on the kids and the fun you were having instead of thinking about the next treat to eat? I found that to be true for me once the cravings were gone. :goodvibes:
