No Second Helpings!

Today went well - because I set some rules for myself and I kept them - and I'm very proud of myself.
  1. Only 3 meals per day - NO SNACKING in between meals.
  2. No second helpings.
  3. I can eat a small treat/dessert together with the meal - at the end of the meal.
Some things that helped me achieve my goals:
  • I think it helped in the morning for breakfast that I started the day with a Green Monster with extra protein added.
  • It was a very cold day today so I ate a warm lunch.
  • I just kept reminding myself of the rules and told myself that "I don't want to be fat"
  • I told myself - if I "feel" hungry - drink water
    • besides I'm not really hungry, I'm not going to starve - my body is getting enough to eat and those "feelings" are just sugar withdrawals or just out of habit of eating all the time.
And here it is - the end of the day - I'm proud of myself and I have NO REGRETS!

Me and my girls - one on each hip - cuz I'm so hip ;)

YAY..good for you! I actually do the same thing..I eat 3 meals and once a week I bake for my husbands work. I have a small piece of watever I bake and thats it for the week. I buy chocolate flavored rice cakes and usually have one of those as desserts. I feel so much wise. It's amazing wat extra snacks can do to you..not that it isnt

You go girl!! You will NEVER believe this, I have those same rules for myself!! Mostly because I take over eating to an unhealthy level and I need boundries. The rules totally work too. It takes a long time but over the past 2 years I've lost about 45 pounds (I'm still loosing too). Anyway, you've got a yeally great blog and I look forward to your future recipe postings :).

So after the weekend, I weighed myself and i lost 3 pounds... it helps that i'm breastfeeding - so the pounds really do just melt away... when you eat like what a normal person eats (i've just been eating way too much for too long) and i have to re-train my body to get used to eating less.

but i'm happy - so happy!

Whoo Hoo..congrats on the 3 pound weightloss :) You do have to retrain yourself for sure..when you see what a real portion size is of's a bit shocking at first! I was eating double and even triple what I should have been eating. I bought a weight scale about a month ago and now I weigh every single thing out. It's helped so much.
