So far, so good!
I've been able to stay on track each day so far. That is an accomplishment for me, to stay on track for four days without cheating. The cool thing is that I can eat anything I want, I just have to count it. I went out to breakfast at Panera with a friend this morning. I looked up the nutritional information before I went, so I knew what I was going to order ahead of time. I ordered a sesame bagel with reduced fat sun-dried tomato cream cheese. I only ate about a third of the cream cheese, so that helped on points. It felt very liberating to be able to go to a restaurant and order something I liked and not feel guilty!
Each day has been an adventure deciding what to eat and how to spend my points. It reminds me of when I get money for my birthday or for Christmas and I'm very careful how I spend my money. The same is true for my points. I don't want to waste them by spending them on something that I don't like, won't fill me up, or satisfy me.
I'm SO excited about this new way of eating!
