"You can be smart and happy or stupid and miserable. . .
it's your choice" - Gordon B. Hinckley

My friend had this posted on her facebook page this morning. I thought it rather appropriate because I had a bit of a naughty dinner last night.

I got out of my rehearsal last night at 8:30 and I was starving!! My husband wasn't going to be home until late and I really didn't feel like cooking so I started looking for a place to eat. The restaurants kept changing in my head. Oooo! I could go Greek! Or I could have Costa Vida...the possibilities were endless! Except not really because everything was closed by the time I got there. :( BOOOOOO! I went to Smash Burger because they were open and a burger started sounding really good. I had a small burger with no cheese or mayo and a side of fries (they have the best fries! *drool*). The plan was to eat half the burger and half the fries but I was so hungry that before I knew it, both were gone. I did eat slow and thought about every bite (The points, OH the points!) that went in my mouth. I probably could have eaten more if there had been more to eat but by the time I got home I was full. I actually don't feel too bad about this. A burger and fries is a rare indulgence for me, and I really only went 5 points over my daily point total. I still have plenty of flex points and all of my activity points.

SO, the whole point of this silly post is that quote. On so many of your blog posts I read about the smart food choices we make and how great and empowered we feel afterwards. I also read about the dumb choices we make and how down on ourselves we are after.

Weight loss is about me. It is a completely selfish thing that I am doing for myself. I am in charge of my decisions. I am the only one who can truly make a smart or a stupid choice for myself. I choose to be happy!


  1. BINGO!!! love it! Hey I want to be your facebook friend. go to my blog and add me as a FB

  2. Very empowering message!!

  3. So true!! I'm going to file that one front of mind.

  4. I love your saying... Happy long weekend..


  5. Right on! I do sometimes feel that this is pretty much the most selfish thing I've ever done in my life. I have an entire blog dedicated to what I put in my mouth, and how I feel about it. It's kind of an odd concept, but you know what? Somethings we need to be selfish about, deserve to be selfish about even. And that's okay. I'm glad you enjoyed that burger. I enjoyed reading about it.

  6. I had never heard of Smash Burger until we moved to Texas. Or Mission Burrito, or Sweet Tomatoes, or Chick-fil-a.... up in Michigan we had "Hardees" But I think Tim Hortons bought those out. But there are no Tim Hortons down here in Texas either. lol Don't mind me just a random comment that spurred from your visit to Smash Burger. :)
