Yes I can have that!

Ugh.. sorry but I need to vent for a quick minute.

I'm so tired of hearing what I can and can't have to eat in everyone else's opinion.... OR being asked what I CAN eat.

Since it's really simple, I'll make it clear and quick.

I eat WHATEVER I want! I either just have less of it OR I fit it into my meal plan for the day! I've had bday cake three times in one week.. I have chocolate, ice cream, cheese, etc.. all the things people think I 'can't' eat. By being in control of how much of it I eat I am able to enjoy it instead of mindlessly eat it. One of my Sunday  treats is a oz piece of brie with mushrooms in it. Before I made my lifestyle change I would eat the entire block in a day or two... but did I really enjoy it after the first few bites? no. Now I enjoy it and get perfectly satisfied with my oz portion and that works for me.

Today my husband wanted to get ice cream and I said they could get some but I didn't want any. He got annoyed and asked what can I have. I told him I can have it.. but I don't WANT it... big difference!

ok..rant over.. sorry about that
