There ARE good days on this weight loss journey. Of course the weigh-ins have all been good because I've continued to go down, even if it's only a pound. But today was good because I didn't experience the temptation that I normally face. Sights and smells were just not a big deal to me. This is pretty rare. Most days it drives me nuts to see commercials for food on TV, and to watch my family eat things I can't eat. I hide in my office during meal time a lot! But some days, and thankfully today was one of them, I just don't have to fight. And it feels good.
I spent my Memorial Day at home with my family, cleaning and preparing for my son's graduation party. My husband put steaks and burgers on the grill, and I made fried zucchini and mashed potatoes for them. But I prepared my own zucchini w/just a touch of oil and no flour...just some salt and pepper. I ate Medifast mashed potatoes. I had turkey meatballs. And I thoroughly enjoyed an extra serving of Diet Coke as my treat. I did, however, have a couple small bites of steak (to taste) and a small slice of watermelon. But it was controlled...it was my "picnic", so I didn't feel deprived.
Feeling very blessed with success.
