Another day, Another Dollop!
I think that our new motto should be "Another day, Another Dollop", since our a little of this and a little of that, has become the new normal. I was so proud of myself yesterday, because I went to a buffet and didn't feel like "I have to get my money's worth!!" It is only $6.49 at the Golden Corral, because I pay the senior price because of my lapband... so "Money's Worth" is silly. I had a little spoonful of this and a little forkful of that... ate off a small plate, and ate protein first, and the Icing on the cake... I got a chocolate cupcake and stared at it throughout the meal... and took 2 small bites of it and left the rest... Ok, Ladies and Gentlemen, You know how I love cupcakes... my husband calls me "Cupcake" because of my love for them... I even love the show Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. But I took 2 baby bites! And didn't beat myself up for wasting it! And I felt great when I left, not stuffed and bloated. i love that they have the nutritional information on the buffet so I can make informed decisions about what to eat too. I had a small piece of broiled fish, broccoli, a small dollop of mashed potatoes(I never liked them but started craving them after my band install, weird?), a hushpuppy(Just 1, Don't hate me because I love fried food, fried is 1 letter away from friend, I really wanted another but i didn't go back), a spoonful of tuna salad, and 2 bites of a cupcake... Definitely more than I normally eat at a meal, but not a ton. I almost skipped out of the restaurant... feeling victorious for the day!
