Default A very strange NSV

I make chocolate peanut butter brownies that everyone loves. I get requests for them for many family functions, work parties, bridal/baby showers, parties, etc... They are very rich and fantastically yummy. So, about 3 weeks ago, I made said brownies for a Cub Scout campout. Since I was trying very hard to not overeat at the campout I packed my own food and only ate what I brought for myself and didn't eat from the "buffet line" of the pitch-in. I didn't even go up there, I just ate my little pre portioned dinner and grilled my own turkey hot dog after everyone else's were finished. I did however, cut myself one brownie (12 points for those WW out there) to have on Monday after my weigh in and as a planned treat (ok, more than likely in place of a usually well balanced lunch). I put the brownie in a tupperware container and put it in the pantry.

So...today (3 weeks later), I was cleaning out the pantry making a grocery list and guess what I found? My brownie! Now, to some people that's not much of a victory, but, for me to not obsess about it being there is amazing.

Usually I would have considered it a NSV that I made it to Monday

Not to mention that most people would be embarrased to admit that they had a 3 week old brownie in the pantry

I feel like an addict sometimes kicking an addiction to food. This made me feel like I am really making progress. Anyone else have any odd happenings that made you feel like you've got a handle on this?

I love it when that happens. I will sock stuff away because my family eats like locusts and I am much more of a hunger driven eater. I just tend to eat too much at a sitting. I also don't eat sweets very often. So I will put stuff like say a couple homeade cookies away so they don't get devoured and weeks later I will be cleaning out the cabinet and find them. Then I think why do I even put that stuff away I obviously don't really want it.

I think one of my favorite sayings right now is "it doesnt make a difference if I eat it or throw it away it is still gone".

Good for you- I am proud of myself that when I'm upset I'm not turning to food like I used to!

That is a big victory! Congrats!

I once had a friend tell me to close my eyes and eat a french fry so I could really concentrate on it's texture and taste. It was just awful. Every since then, french fries have never tasted as good... and I realize that's how I SHOULD be eating all my food!!

Kaybelle, I will have to try that. I've always had a weakness for french fries but have been able to overcome it since I started losing weight...that is, until this past week. I've had two large McDonald's fries in the last 3 days. =(

I've done that with soda, I was just too broke to afford it, but when I finally 'broke down' (ha ha pun) and bought a 20 oz coke I started thinking and didn't realize it had been over a month since I had had one! I was really proud of myself, and just that thought made me go another month with out a soda!

Congrats!

Reminded me of a funny leftover food story.

When my twin boys were in 7th grade, they were studying mold in science and needed mold. My boys and one other boy had the best mold in the class. ROFL!

Guess we knew whose families didn't clean out the fridge/pantry and wolf down all the leftovers.

In a way it was embarrassing, yet they had great science projects.

That is an awesome NSV. You should be proud. As for having a brownie in the pantry for 3 weeks, not to worry, these things happen to everyone. Today I found a sugar cookie in a ziploc bag from Easter that was in the cats' stuff (one of the cats likes them and gets tiny pieces sometimes). The really scary thing was that it wasn't moldy or anything
