Yesterday's lunch was Subway again ... well it worked for Jared. My choice was that or a salad and I know that salad can have hidden calories even though I'd make sure the dressing would be on the side this time. I went with what I knew would be a better choice and had no problem with it even though I had it the day before. I packed basically the same lunch for Gary for 35 years and he didn't complain so two in a row didn't create a problem for me.
Gary fixed spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and it was very hard not to overdo it there because it is so good. I took less spaghetti than I normally would because I used a salad plate and only one meatball because I also wanted a glass of wine and felt I couldn't have both. Dinner was very filling but I still had the urge to snack later in the evening but I was successful in avoiding.
I keep saying that I need to stay focused and be aware of every morsel that goes in my mouth but is that any way to live? Is that good or does it cause frustration? Shouldn't I just be able to say four meals a day and make good decisions when it comes time to sit down and eat and not dwell on it 24/7. Maybe that time will come. I just have to get a few successful weigh ins under my belt and it's still one day at a time.
