Had a good food moment today at lunch. Was at the counter at Harpo’s to get my usual pasta salad (which I eat with my own fat free dressing) and noticed the tray of pepperoni pizza. Yummm. Contemplated getting a slice of pizza to go with my salad then realize that I really wasn’t THAT hungy. I love pizza and it looked good but ultimately I decided that I would be happier stepping on the scale and seeing more weight lost and more fat lost than I would eating that delicious pizza for 90 seconds or so.
So I decided to just stick with the pasta salad. Other days I might decide to have the pizza and that’s o.k. But today I took an honest appraisal of how hungry I really was and whether or not I really needed the pizza.
Felt good the moment I did it, in fact.
