LOL, DeeLen! Somehow I see myself in that scenario.
When I was a young woman, I never gave a thought to calories or carbs or fat or anything. I just ate. Anything and everything. And was lucky enough to have a marvelous metabolism, and I remained quite, quite slim.
After middle years and weight gain, and obesity!, and when I ate low carb, I didn't lose weight, and I think it was because I still didn't count calories, and I didn't get appetite suppression from low carb, so I overate because I was still so hungry, and since the low carb stuff was calorie dense, I really overate calories by a great deal. I still eat all those low carb foods and love it all, but somehow combined with all the other foods I now eat, and on the JUDDD eating plan, I find appetite is in amazing control and weight loss/maintenance happened for me.
It really does go to show me that, for myself, I have to stay aware of my calorie intake, even if I don't have to count as carefully or as completely every single day these days.
But that must have been one heck of a delicious pizza! And paired with onion rings too! Imagine that. LOLOLOLOL
