The other day we went to Golden Corral for dinner to break a time of fasting. Haven not eaten in a long time left me very hungry, but I told myself I didn't want to overeat and be stuffed to the point of sickness...easily done when breaking a fast.
And I didn't.
I enjoyed a full meal and was full, but I was not stuffed. I didn't feel sick, or have any regrets that I ate too much.
On top of that, I did not eat anything else the rest of the evening.
I knew I would be full until bedtime and told myself I needed to try and not snack just because I was eating again. At one point I started to reach for a Reese's PB Cup (my FAVORITE), but I stopped in in my mind reminded myself that I had dessert at Golden Corral and I didn't need more.
THIS IS HUGE FOR ME!!!
So, I start the week off with that bright thought. I'm also glad to report that while the scale isn't down at that "fun" number I saw Friday morning after fasting, it is lower than my last weigh-in.
Hip, hip, hooray! Here's to a great week and breakthroughs in overeating!!
