Yeah!  The guys in my office did a round of Hot Chocolate and marshmallows… I had a herbal tea instead.

It felt GREAT.

I’ve also had no snacks in 2 days (this is a huge achievement) and surprisingly… i’m not actually hungry. I guess I just do it out of habit.

Our engagement pictures will be later in the summer and I want to look good for those, let alone my wedding!

@lookingglass: Snacks aren’t a bad thing. As long as you’re making good food choices, it’s actually better for your metabolism to have a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack. Maybe just re-evaluate what you snack on?

I probably do a cheat every day. Don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean daily cheeseburgers and krispy kremes. Just maybe an extra large bowl of cereal one day (trying to cut down on my grain intake), or a piece of chocolate, or a handful of chips, just something like that. But I never go above my caloric intake goal for the day. I have to say though, while I’m mostly pretty good, if my company brought in pizza and wings right now I’d be first in line so good for you and your willpower.

For the record, I am having tuna for lunch. So not excited.

Good for you!  I often eat things I don’t even like much at the office, just because they are there!  How silly right?

You’re eating salad at 9am? You’re a champ!

That’s great, I’m so proud of you!  Keep up the good work.  I always feel very smug and superior when I can turn my nose up at the doughnuts and baked goods that pop up around my office all the time.  Hehe.  Truthfully, it’s hard as hell!  But later you will feel so good about yourself!

Great job! Saying “no” to things like that is sooo darn hard but when you do (and after the temptation is over) it feels so good!

I feel your pain. Work brought lunch in for us (local Italian place here) but I stayed strong and had my salad with chicken!
