This evening I made a bowl of pasta with vegetables before heading off to a birthday party around six. At the party I allowed my self one square of pizza and a small dessert. Having that little bit of food made me feel great, I wasn't sitting back having a pity party because I couldn't eat the food that was offered. I was able to enjoy the food and enjoy the party. What would have happened if I didn't eat before heading to the party? I would have had way to much food and would not have enjoyed myself, after eating I would have been mad because I cancelled out the bike ride I completed earlier in the day by eating bad food.
Getting to this point has not been easy at all, like anything it took a lot of work and a lot of self discipline. My wife has also been a huge help, she will be the one who checks what will be available food wise. I know I say this a lot but my wife is one amazing person, I can't thank her enough for all she does.
