Noticing my progress

I feel lately I have been focusing a lot on the negative so today I want to note something positive in my recovery. 

I will start by saying that I have definitely come such a long way with worrying about calories, fat grams points, etc. That seemed to be the easier part of intuitive eating for me. I think I was just so ready to give up that obsession. I couldn't imagine keeping track another day.

What I do struggle with is eating past my full point, especially when dining out. Last night Steve and I had a date night at a local steakhouse. My dinner came and I ate half of my steak probably a quarter of my sweet potato fries and 2 shrimp. I wrapped the rest up to go. I'm so proud of this! I struggle so much with eating what ever is left on my plate weather I'm full or not. The good thing is that I left room for some dessert : ) 

One more positive for the night was hubby telling me how free I have been lately! That was so huge for me to hear. He was used to me worrying about weight and calories constantly or just worrying about something in general. I might not be at the weight I want to be right now but all of these other things I have gained are so much better!

Don't forget to note your progress during your journey it's so important!
