Aha moment

Yesterday I had an unplanned lunch out - Beef Brisket sandwich and fries at one of those places that could be on "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives."  It was delicious but put in me well over my daily points and took up a good chunk of my weekly points. 
It was good and I didn't go over my total points so therefore ok by the plan.

Today I had a lunch of Eggs, cheese and veggies - peppers, onions, mushrooms, broccoli.  Total points for all I ate?  11 pts.

After each meal I was just as full.

Both were delicious.

"Aha." I said.  "Aha, I can make better choices, be full and still enjoy eating"

Sometimes progress is yummy.

Nice work! I had that moment when I realized *4 cups* of air-popped popcorn cost as much as half a handful of chex mix. Yowza! Can't wait to hear about your first weigh-in!

That is indeed an "aha" moment! Kudos to you for linking those two experiences together.
