I hate dieting. It’s all about discipline and deprivation.
It’s die with a ting on the end of it.
So I have been mildly surprised that I haven’t gone off the deep end of the emotional hunger pool (at least not yet). I haven’t even used up all my daily points! Somehow, just knowing that I could have that slice of bread AND a glass of Chardonnay AND an Italian Ice dessert and STILL be within my “points” range… well, it all makes me feel more in control. Perhaps even more disciplined?? I didn’t deprive myself of those extra things tonight; I chose to not have them — because I was satisfied with what I had eaten already.
The asparagus is from our garden. I even had 6 additional shrimp, for a total of 18. A mere 3 points!
