Today, while packing snacks to come to work I had an epiphany.

On Wednesdays (yesterday), Caleb and I eat at church before service. The ladies there prepare awesome meals, including dessert. It takes us a while to get seated b/c we have the carseat and then Brayden's booster seat, etc. By the time I am sitting and eating, I am starving! As I eat, I am savoring and making sure to enjoy all of the flavors, and then it hit me...I was full. So, naturally I pushed my bowl away and started focusing on getting Brayden to eat "just one more bite, and then you can have your cupcake".

It wasn't until this morning that I realized what I had done. I had turned down more food. I became full before devouring an entire plate of delicious food. People this is HUGE! I am now able to listen to my body and to take heed it's cues.

After being on a two week plateau, I weighed myself this morning. 8.9lbs down! I am 1.1 lbs away from my first goal!!! What kind of reward should I give myself??
