I budgeted three pieces of dark cocoa Belgian truffles***. I stopped what I was doing and savored every morsel. I stayed within my carb/calorie targets. I said No to cookies, offered several times during a meeting. I told myself I would be eating lunch afterwards and that I was determined to lose the weight I had gained over vacation.
Every choice that takes me towards my goals builds my confidence. Strengthening the No Thanks muscle pays off. I used my reminder system today to keep focused on taking care of my health, here and now.
***okay to be perfectly honest, the 200 calories in the budget were initially ear-marked for some ready-to-eat tuna fish in a packet. Intentionally choosing and savoring these truffles was terrific.
