The intellectual side of me agrees with you, Muffintop, healthy eating is the main goal. But the vain side of me says weight loss is the main goal.
I've been away for the past week but sticking as closely as possible to the SB plan. We went out to a fancy restaurant one evening and the dessert menu screamed at me throughout the meal.
BUT listen to this: we split three desserts among five of us and even though I had three plates of cake parts in front of me, I only ate half of one of them! This was a huge breaking point for me. A couple months ago I would have gobbled up a whole dessert without thinking about it.
So, here's another new lesson I've learned. Even though my eating isn't completely SBD perfect, it is so SO much better. I'm THINKING about every morsel that passes through my lips.
I will lose weight. I will.
