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!

    Good for you! I have been working on this very same thing. One thing that has helped me is to reduce the size of my plate - from a 10" to an 8". A smaller plate fills up and looks like a lot with 3-4 oz of protein and a couple of cups of veggies. I love a good homemade pizza, too, and I have learned to SMTP myself at 2 slices of pizza. Took a loooong time,but now it is a habit.
