I stepped on the scale this morning and found a surprise.  I’ve lost 3.5 lbs.  There was another surprise in store for me today.  Wheat pancakes actually taste good.  I went to Denny’s and had them for the first time.  I had them with fruit, turkey bacon, and chicken sausage.  I skipped the hash browns, which can be like crack to me.  I used to have Waffle House on speed dial during medical school.  Just call me Ms. Scattered, Smothered, and Covered.  LOL.  I chewed slow and ended up not even eating an entire pancake before I was full.  I even went really light on the syrup.  I’ve found this chewing more times to be a Godsend.  I truly believe I was eating so fast that my body didn’t have a chance to signal it was full before I had plowed past the point of satiety.  I’ll have to see what surprises are in store for tomorrow.
5 days down, 16 to go until it’s a habit.  Wish me luck.
Much nub and fitness,
