Okay so I was driving around today for work visiting all of our branches and I thought "I want french fries." I didn't really fight it; it was just that when I was around places that sold fries I didn't really want them.
So I decided to get some for dinner but I ate too much and felt frustrated with myself. Later on in the evening I walked past the kitchen counter where there was a plate of brownies someone at work had given me. I had no desire to eat them. But it made me think...
Okay, I overate this evening and there was a plate of brownies sitting right next to me at the time and I didn't touch them. They also gave me two chocolate suckers which I haven't eaten. And I love chocolate; it's not that I don't want it it's just...I'm able to walk away.
The "old me" would have overeaten the fries AND the brownies. The "new me" overate but stopped.
Twice today I let myself get too hungry and twice today I ate more than I needed. But three times today I stopped when I could have easily continued. Progress...slow but stead. Nice.
