We all know weight loss is about far more than calories in versus calories out right?

Well today i may have strayed from my plan but instead of deciding that because lunch was a blow out i may aswell order pizza tonight, i didnt. I decided there and then to get back on the horse.

I wouldnt of done that a month ago, and even if the change is slow, it is happening. i want to acknowledge those changes in us all, not just the inches and the pounds.

I'm glad you didn't...:) but I wish I took your advice Saturday night... Yup, I ate greasy pizza. And lots of it. Good for you though, self control! :)

That's great. It's not the one meal that messes us up, it's the twenty that follow when we give up.

Good for you, Paula! Awesome progress! :)

I ate pizza yesterday as well, but I planned it...so I'm TRYING not to feel odd about it. It has been SUCH a long time, however, since I ate anything like pizza, that it just seemed wrong somehow. Silly, I know, but true. I thought I was "over" feeling guilty about food...I mean, I didn't feel guilty after Thanksgiving.

Anyway, I guess I'm still in the learning process...it's not like I exceeded my daily calorie limit even, but I have been sooo focused on "eating healthy" that NOT eating something healthy actually threw me for a loop...

Paula, that's terrific! Schumeany, you remind me that our bodies change faster than our brains...

I ate big pizzas for a few months after I blew it and gave up. Note to self - take Dominos off speed dial!

Awesome Paula! Glad you are back as well! I am learning that as well myself to get back on the horse with the next meal.

ok, lets not give pizza such a bad rap. I had pizza the other day, and was quite pleased with my choice! It had a ww crust, low fat mozza, and lots of veggies, and black olives (good fat). I had 2 slices, so a reasonable portion, and didn't have 3 beers, but one diet soda with it.
Given the circumstances (fast food only choices) I felt I made a good choice, and didn't pig out!

Girls, homemade pizza is the easiest thing to make! Make it Greek!

I made one last night. Premade crust was 130 cals per 1/6 slice. 1 cup of skim-milk shredded cheese (300 calories), and then tomatoes, olives, zuchinni, and little shrimps.

Shared it with BF and it came to 400-550 cals for each of us (3-4 slices each!).

ooo, sacha - that sounds great! :) What kind of crust do you use? I usually only see Boboli around here, can't remember the calorie count.
