Weight Watcher mentality is creeping into my train of thought.
This is such a good thing! I've noticed several new things about myself. Now when I want something that isn't so good for me (think potato chips), I delay munching some and drink a glass of water. If I am still having a craving, I put a few in a small bowl to enjoy leisurely. (In the past, I brought the whole bag over).
At last weeks meeting our pamphlet was on some of the WW "super foods" that are high in fiber and LOW in points. Raspberries! 8 grams of fiber and 0 points. There were lots of other foods on the chart ... artichokes, avocado, lentils, pears, etc ... but I love raspberries. Yet I rarely buy them. They are so expensive and only last 2-3 days in the fridge.
I now have a reason, a healthy reason, to treat myself to raspberries. Of course, I made myself go to Walmart so the price wouldn't put me into cardiac arrest.
When I'm feeling snacky, I reach in the fridge and grab a handful. Along with the ubiquitous water, it is another way to feed the tummy with a filling and healthful treat.
This morning I made oatmeal (did I mention how cold it was here this morning???) and put icy cold raspberries on top. This afternoon I had a Chobani yogurt with raspberries.
I need to look at the positive and delicious choices WW has for me ... instead of thinking about any deprivation. My plan is to have a glass or two of wine on weekends (socializing) and even a little bowl of chips. When I have something to look forward to, it makes it easier for me to decline.
Braeden loves them also!
