..... and I'm HAPPY!
I was really hungry today. So while I was at the pool, I ate a whole cantaloupe. 200 calories. That's all.
Then at supper, I ate a whole spaghetti squash. 165 calories. For the whole thing.
Who knew I could get full on so few calories! Of course, I had Ragu sauce on the spaghetti squash - but it was still so much better than the mountain of spaghetti that I would normally eat.
And I LIKED it. I'd never had spaghetti squash in place of pasta but I think I can do that from now on! The thing I like about spaghetti is the Ragu sauce. And no, I never make my own.
And of course I like Ragu. It's ketchupy!
Now, I don't want to eat the way I ate today. Skinny eaters don't eat a WHOLE cantaloupe. They eat a couple of slices. Skinny eaters don't eat a WHOLE spaghetti squash. They eat a cupful.
Massive quantities is my boogey man. Portion control is like a foreign language.
But tonight the language I'm trying to learn is self-forgiveness. I'll work on portion control tomorrow.
