All through my life I have had a big Sunday dinner. Meat and potatoes are the base of those dinners. Yesterday I ate light through the day so I could enjoy my "big" Sunday dinner. I put 6 oz of lean top round roast beef on my plate, 2 cups of mashed potatoes, 1 cup of baby carrots, and 1 1/2 cups of watermelon. All that fit into my food plan due to what little I had eaten through the day. As soon as I picked up my fork and knife I thought "I'm not going to be able to eat all of this". Two weeks ago I would have had no problem polishing that amount of food off. I ended up leaving one half of the potatoes, one half of the carrots, and about one quarter of the watermelon on my plate. I guess my stomach is shrinking. It is becoming easier to eat less because I require less food to feel full. In the words of Martha Stewart "Its a good thing".
