Thanks everyone for the compliments yesterday, it just sort of hit me yesterday what a big change in me that whole eat in moderation thing represents. I noticed another one case of this tonight. I ended up eating real light for breakfast and lunch, so my wife and and I went to Moe's for dinner and I had the grilled chicken bowl, fairly healthy. But the big thing is this: when I was done eating, I noticed that my wife only ate about half of her chicken fajitas. In the past, this would have meant instant annihilation, Imperial Stormtrooper style, courtesy of Matt. And I'm not saying the urge wasn't there at all, but I was already full, I took one little bite of chicken and that was the end of the raid.
Grading today a B+ for eating well enough, drinking lots of water, and for not raiding the leftovers. By the way, I've departed from the "food log" approach in every blog post. I still will talk about what I eat, but I was finding there were nights when I didn't feel like posting because listing every food item eaten felt like a chore, like an assignment. So it's freestyle, from here on out, unless I find I need to go back to the food log for accountability.
Good night y'all.
