The Story of the Patty Melt

6 Aug

Hi friends! I know it’s been a while since I wrote last…. BUT.. I do have good news. I have lost another .75 lbs! YAY

Last weekend we had the pleasure of visiting our friends for a few days. I made up my mind before we went that I would go to the store and buy healthy things to keep in their fridge! It wasn’t too bad, I managed to avoid yummy’s  and stick with my healthy alternatives, counting calories everyday!

Now on one of the last days there, my friends hubby who is a great cook, decided to make patty melts! I resisted the urge to say I wanted one and enjoyed my soup and veggies instead. My tummy was completely satisfied after I finished my dinner. Then it happened, the smell of the onions and beef with the sourdough grilling in the pan. I immediately wanted one! I had to check myself, was I still hungry? NO! It was purely just the fact that I just wanted to eat one. Well, after realizing this, I really couldn’t eat one. How could I consciously eat after I knew that I wasn’t hungry!

Lesson learned: Learn to check yourself and see if you really are even hungry before indulging in something.

Fill up on proteins and fiber, they keep you full longer and are healthier!
