We went to Cheesecake Factory tonight which is pretty funny because the last time I went there was on the very first day of this blog. (Day One…). It feels so good to have some choices, to be out, and still stay on plan. This is my choice because I want to get to goal more than to eat a piece of cheesecake. I did have three small tastes thanks to my family and that was enough (for the record I counted them as 3sp).
I am scheduled for spin at 5:15 am and I am looking forward to hitting my activity goal for the week. These are the little decisions that I am making to better my life.
I no longer come at my weight loss journey from a perspective of scarcity and that’s an important shift. In other words, I don’t think this way, I can never have what I really want because there aren’t enough Smartpoints to accommodate cheesecake. Now I look at it like this, I can go to Cheesecake Factory with my family and still enjoy my meal and I am still likely (because you never know how the scale will perform on weigh-in day) to have a loss for the week. I can have it all.
Well, maybe I can’t have it ALL but I can choose what I really want. What I really want is to get to goal. More tomorrow…
