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,
