Background - I have a MAJOR problem with pizza. I LOVE it, and I can't seem to control myself with it, so I have (mostly) stayed away from it so far on this journey. The average pizza dinner for me includes at least 4 or 5 slices.
So, last night we ordered 2 mediums instead of the regular 2 larges. While he went out to pick it up I decided to make a salad to go with it. I made this very YUMMY apple & carrot salad recipe from my week 7 WW book. When the pizzas were home I found a nice slice for myself and filled the rest of my plate with salad.
THAT WAS IT FOR ME - ONE SLICE!!!!! I am so proud of myself. Even today, with all the leftovers in the house, I didn't touch them. I was tempted to. TOM started this morning and is VERY heavy and I have been really crampy all day, in fact I spent most of the day in bed. But when I did get up to make some lunch I was starving because I skipped breakfast (so I could sleep) and I was tempted to just grab some pizza since it would be quick. But, I managed to fight that urge and make myself a nice pt friendly lunch.
So, we as a family only ate 1 medium pizza last night, the rest became leftovers - this is a breakthrough for us. And we only ate that much because my hubby was feeling extra hungry.
Man, I love the changes that our whole household is making - we are all healthier than ever before.
