Adjusting The Normal: What I Really Want

Last week a friend told me about a donut place I could try when I was on vacation here, and she insisted that I’d want to eat 5 donuts the minute I tasted one. I am happy to say that she was wrong. I ate one, and while I suppose I could have eaten more, I chose not to. They were alright, but something I’ve learned recently is that the first bite of food is always the best. So I had one then moved on, drinking a Slimfast and a bottle of water.  

For lunch, everyone had hot dogs and burgers.  And I ate  a a turkey burger (which is way less fattening than a regular hamburger because it’s made with lean turkey.)  And it was surprisingly awesome! So what if it’s not beef?  Just enjoy what it is because it’s good.  The same thing goes for whole wheat pasta, low-fat cheese and everything else my appetite is adjusting to.  

What I really want (more than Doritos or french fries or fried foods) is to be thin and to feel satisfied during process which is leading my to a healthy, skinnier me.  And I am happy to say that it’s happening so far.  I enjoy the some of the foods I like, but I ask myself if I really want it first.  I picture myself on the scale and how happy I’ll be when it shows a significant loss, and that helps me control the cravings that arise in the short term. 

It feels so good to eat well exercise…On that note, I’m going for a walk…:)
