to add to this, I would. I’m feeling very good today. I have been soooo good I just can’t hardly stand it! Altho the other day was almost a disaster!
My daughter decided to go to Del Taco (where my favorite burrito is about 3lbs. and 25 pts.) and asked if I wanted anything. I was starving at the time and “Yes” just popped right out of this big ol’ mouth. Luckily I caught myself, and told her I would be fixing myself a chiliburger here. I figured 98% fat free Dennisons, my 93% lean ground beef, and I only needed 1/2 of the bun instead of the whole thing. I envisioned a nice, fiber-filled, filling lunch for about 6pts. That’s reasonable, aye? I went to the kitchen and the couple of cans of lowfat chili I had bought for me were gone. There were 16 cans of the fully leaded stuff! which by then I ended up eating. When I counted up all the points, sure as heck, there it was, all 16pts. But, being newly committed that I am, I only had a salad for dinner that nite and here I am feeling good about it 2 days later!
When stuff like the above happens that makes us feel so good about ourselves and so accomplished, it makes me wonder why at times I am so into self-sabatoging and pain!
