Another kind of "moment"

To add to the (very good) threads about "defining moments"...have you had a moment that you could identify and perhaps celebrate as a step toward your goal?

I had one today at the grocery store. I LOVE movie theatre candy (DOTS and Jujyfruits especially). I went past the aisle in the store today and didn't stop. I didn't even realize what a huge step that was until I was in the checkout line and passed up another opportunity at candy. I know that I can have it if I want it, but I didn't really want it! That's a big one for me.

I have a lot of these moments. The other night my husband was eating chocolate cake (my favorite) and I didn't even have one bite because I knew one bite would lead to the whole thing. Now before I take a bite I ask him if it's worth getting fat over. lol. It rarely is!!

I had one not long ago. I used to periodically 'forget' my healthy breakfast because I adore going to the cafeteria at work and getting a big toasted cinnamin raisin bagel with PB&J melting all over it, but this time I really truly did forget my breakfast and I was bummed because the bagel is just empty carbs and wouldn't tide me over til lunch like my high-fiber, high-protein breakfast does. Thus come 10:00 I would be both starved and sleepy from the ensuing blood sugar crash - bleah.
