One old habit that has been very difficult for me to break is saying no to bread. I mean the basket that comes out at almost every restaurant before the meal is served. In the past I would have definitely eaten a piece or two. One major weakness: breadsticks at the Olive Garden. We don't live near the restaurant so getting to eat there is always a treat. Surely that means that I deserve to have one, right?
Yesterday, I passed on the breadsticks at Olive Garden. It wasn't easy. The bread looked and smelled delicious! However, I've been trying to reset my brain when it comes to bread: I don't need it because my meal is plenty to make me feel full. I was actually finishing my meal when I realized that I hadn't picked up a breadstick. Score one for me!
