Good For Me!

Today is my daughter's 18th birthday, which we celebrated yesterday. As usual, the celebration involved our extended family going out to dinner and returning to my house for cake and ice cream. I enjoyed dinner (the Cajun Tilapia at Applebee's is delicious and nutritious) and I enjoyed the small piece of Cold Stone Strawberry Passion Cake. The best part is that I only went over my calories by 185 and I did not go over on my fat at all. While extra calories are not ideal, I am so proud of myself. Before joining MFP and tracking everything, I most definitely would have gone WAY over on everything. Good for me!

    that is awesome! Isn't it amazing how we become more aware of what we are putting in our mouths when we are watching what we eat? I found myself doing that last night, I had a piece of cheesecake last night, and I would have ate a huge piece but instead I just ate a small little square piece, and it satisfied me. good job and keep up the great work!
