Learning...I Won't Beat Myself Up

We went out to dinner at Cafe Rio last night. I did not order my usual pork salad. I ordered two pork tacos instead with black beans and rice. I was really surprised how satisfying it was. But after I ate I felt guilty. I was totally satisfied after eating some rice, beans and ONE of the tacos. Did I stop? Nope. I ate that 2nd taco and then the terrible voices in my head started raging! They told me I was a loser, had no self control, I was a pig, etc. But then I stopped!! I started re-thinking things. I had made a BETTER choice by ordering tacos instead of that salad. And even though I ate two tacos I told myself that I am making progress in my weight loss journey. I know that I have to change my habits. And so I turned self loathing into something positive. So next time I know that I can order one taco, rice and beans and feel totally 100% satisfied. Plus I'll save a lot of money too!!

  1. This is my first time visiting your blog and I am finding some great things that we have in common. 1) you are a stay-at-home mom of three. 2) you sing in the Jenny Phillips Choir. Um, I don't know who Jenny Phillips is, but my husband is a choir teacher, so I think that is pretty close. 3) I would have ate both of the tacos as well.
