"You're not a dog. Don't reward yourself with food."

On Friday I was offered a new job with an engineering firm.  I happily accepted.  What was the first thing that I suggested to my husband?  Lets go out to eat to celebrate!  Why do we do this?  Because it's easy?  Because I want my favorite food to make me happier?  I honestly have no idea.

We went to one of my favorite places where we don't usually go.  I never ordered the salad bar, but tonight I decided to try it. I ate two salads and ended up boxing up 3/4 of my most favorite dish!  I felt so good when I left!  I wasn't stuffed, but I felt content!! It was great! 

I've decided salads are ok and for me, that is a huge thing.  I "hated" lettuce and vegetables for the longest time and I'm working to try new things. 

I forgot to weigh on Tuesday, so when I weigh this coming Tuesday, I'll let you know my weight and the changes I'm seeing!
