Someone brought lunch in for our office today and I said "no" to the brownie and ate my pulled chicken without a bun.

This is a biggie for me: learning to incorporate former binge foods into my healthier eating plan without all the bells and whistles going off in my head!
Yesterday I made a lemon loaf, except I split the recipe into two loaves. I froze one for a friend (honest!) and kept the other for me to dole out one slice a day as a treat. No way would I have done that before getting into a healthier mindset as the whole loaf would've been too tempting.
One more sign I'm progressing with this: I had a craving for pasta the other night. I think I can count on one hand the times I've eaten a "normal" serving size of pasta in my life. It's typically an enormous bowl, along with garlic bread and Italian sausages. And lots of Parmesan cheese, of course. You'd think I was training for the Olympics if you saw what I could easily wolf down. So in the past few years I've shied away from making pasta at home, afraid of the dreaded triggers. Not anymore. I'm still having the pasta, the not-so-healthy jarred sauce (until I can get off my butt and make my own!) and the Italian sausage, just no bread. And I added tons of mushrooms, spinach & extra tomatoes in the sauce. It's amazing how emotionally good it feels to eat one portion and be satisfied mentally and physically, when pasta used to represent a means of quieting anxiety/filling an emotional ache.
Please know that if I can get over these hurdles, you can too.

Another Bra Story: this morning when I put my bra on, I noticed it seemed a bit baggy in the cups. Then I sat down to drink my coffee and noticed that the wrinkles in the loose bra cups were visible through my shirt, prompting me to go searching through my drawers for a smaller bra. I am very busty and I'm pretty sure I've gone down at least two to three cup sizes. Feels pretty darn satisfying!
