Ultimate test!

Ok I swore today I was going to have a good day–stick to my plan of eating..stay on points..and i did! Yahoo…..

However I gave myself an ultimate test earlier..and i didn’t even realize it…………….we were getting groceries and I had a whole bunch of healthy fruits and veggies, ww bread, salmon, etc.. on the counter to buy..and i seen some candy bars…Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups…….need I say more?? and the first thing I thought was..ohh the bf would love these to take back with him to Alberta…….and when I got home I realized..I didnt even think about buying these for myself or the thought “maybe sacrifice 2 pts later on for just one cup” didn’t even enter my mind. This is a big accomplishment considering they are one of my absolute favourites…….ANYTHING with chocolate and pb together is a weakness.

So of course he couldn’t wait until he got back and opened one in front of me….offered one…….and i said “Nope.. I promised myself and I am keeping that promise and they were for you”…….so instead I had a 60 calorie Hershey’s mint chocolate stick……..which was on the plan AND only 1 point!

    It is a major accomplishment when you start to change the way you think about food. Before, Im sure you would have gotten the PB cups for yourself to eat without thinking twice. Now, you bought them for someone else without even the notion to have a taste! That is major! Good for you for sticking to your plan for the day! Looking at your total weight loss is such motivation for me. You’ve come such a long way! It’s so encouraging!

    I just wanted to say thank you for your comment on my blog. I had a horrible day with points today and you reminded me that just because I have one bad day doesn’t mean I can’t do it. It made my evening.

    Thank you again so much!
