This morning after I woke up I go out turn on the lights in the kitchen like every morning and take out the coffee filter with the used coffee grounds in it from the day before. I open the trash can and dump in the grounds, but wait I see something familiar, something golden and cheezy like, something I would never throw out in a million years.
Oh my gosh! Cheez-its at the bottom of the trash can! ACK! Why would he throw out his Cheez-its!? He only had a few in a bowl the night before surely he could have eaten all of them?? I would never do that, I couldn't do that wait why couldn't I do that I have control over what I eat now right? Yes, but I am still addicted to food and do not always have the strength to throw out what I do not need, but my husband can.
Wow! It was like a ton of bricks hitting me at 5 AM before my coffee was even made this is where I want to be in my journey.
Can you throw out food that is on your plate when you know you have eaten plenty and are full?
