Perspectives from Elizabeth:
Well, I survived pizza day and it actually was not as hard as I thought it would be. I really do enjoy pizza and in the past when I struggled the most with my weight, if I saw a food, but did not let myself eat it, all I thought about was that food. Finally I would give in and overeat. I was fearful that would occur when I was presented with two options pizza (that almost everyone else was eating) or my lentil quinoa pilaf. Thankfully, the lentil quinoa pilaf was really good and I was happy to be eating the leftovers from dinner for lunch again. I surprisingly did not miss the pizza that much and greatly enjoyed my lunch. However, one of the first meals on our post Ultimate Reset meal plan will probably be a healthy pizza! I look forward to looking for some recipes and eating one of my favorite foods in moderation now that I am in control of my eating and not my emotions!
