What was your sign that you were okay, that changing the way you live your life and think about it was the right thing to do, and that you could do this? I just got mine today, in the smallest way possible. It's actually something so small it might even be trivial if it weren't for the fact that it was a huge eye opener.
My mom got back from the store and we were unloading the car. I spotted a container of Oreos (reduced fat, which made me even more interested). I thought, 'oh, yum, I love Oreos', which was kind of weird. Ever since I got into this healthier-lifestyle thing, I haven't really wanted cookies, candies, cakes, sweets, fast food, etc. But anyway, after we were all done, I said, "I'm going to have an Oreo."
And I did. One Oreo. And I was fine. I didn't binge. I didn't crave more. I was satisfied with that one Oreo. And I just felt this great feeling of ease, like, did I need the Oreo? No. Did I want it? Eh, kind of. Could I have lived without it? Definitely. But did I eat it? Yes. Did I feel guilty? No.
Anyway, just felt like sharing.
Share yours, please? I'd love to hear them.
