Neutral 2/8/09

So... I've really felt like I should "reward" myself for sticking to my diet. I had already decided that my reward would be a Reese's peanut butter cup shake from Arctic Circle. Well, I hadn't brought myself to actually do it but last night, I went for it! I ate about half of a 12 oz shake. I was really hoping that I would take a bite and it wouldn't taste as good as I had hoped, or be way too sweet. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! I loved every bite and I was still proud of myself when I handed over the second half of the shake to my cousin, without the impulse to finish the whole thing. I think it was a trial of my self-restraint and I consider this one a triumph! I can control what I put in my mouth!! Even when it's something I've been dreaming about eating for a whole month! ;o)

Holy Crap! Way to go girl! I don't think I could have that kind of self-control, even when I AM in 'diet' mode. Great job! Keep it up!

Woohoo! I took a few bites of my daughters strawberry cheesecake one the other day! It was so good, I think that will have to be my reward next time!! Good job, I hope I can put it down maybe if I think of it as my daughters then I wont want to eat the whole thing!
