So I LOVE pizza! I make it homemade and it's totally delicious! Yesterday, I carefully heaped the majority of my points to dinner (making a very, VERY slim lunch and breakfast) so I could enjoy three slices of awesome pizza. Mind you, if I going to be honest here, it wasn't too long ago when I was easily stuffing 4 slices (or more) in, so three was truly a reduction for me. Do you know what happened?? After two slices, I was REALLY FULL! I was shocked. It was hard to wrap my head around that I could be full on so little. It seems my body (and really my stomach) are responding well to the reduction in food volume, but my brain...well that is another matter. My mind seems to want a feast at every meal. Something akin to the "ghost of Christmas Past" spread of abundance in the Dickens "Christmas Carol". So I am telling my mind, You don't need to look like you have eaten an elaborate feast at every meal - how about a compromise? I give myself (and my mind) the promise that every meal will be presented in the most attractive and appetizing ways to ensure full satisfaction of my senses. There. That should satisfy my brain and lead me to increased success!
