I didn't weigh myself the last two days, but I've been determined to not turn to my 'happy foods' to make myself feel better. It's been rough, but I've managed to stay away from the 'happy foods'. AND....I've been rewarded, the scales went down another pound!!! WOO HOOO!!!

Yes, that is my new term....happy foods. We all have our happy foods. For me it's baked goods and carbs. Pasta pasta pasta! Comfort foods...but I prefer to call them happy foods. Becuase they will make me happy (fleetingly of course...but happy) and if I'm already in a good mood...well then happy foods are a prefect accompaniment! Happy foods! But I've managed my happy food consumption these last few days. And while my mood has been one that I feel as if the world is crumbling down around me......I feel really good because I have been 100% in control of my eating!

Food for Friday September 25, 2009 (and might I add that they ordered in pizza for us at lunch at work).

mandarin oranges
green beans
string cheese
Homemade Helper (sooo very tasty)
lowfat/ff ice cream (yup, exactly 1/2 cup...I premeasure my ice cream as soon as I bring it home)

We brought in pizza at work one day this week too and I was quite worried about it. In the past, I'd eat a lot of pizza... but this time, I had one slice of veggie and got back to work. Before I knew it, it was time for my afternoon handful of almonds and I was none the worse for wear. I didn't figure the calories, but my guess is that my one-slice lunch was about the same as my normal lunch. Go figure...

I usually want to eat when I cannot control my world. Or have a drink. Today I am opting for the drink route. Glad to see you had a loss and a good eating day!
