I spent a very emotional day dealing with a family member, it is very tiring. I stayed my course and continued with my day even though my emotions were in turmoil.
I decided over a month ago it was time for me, and I am worth putting the extra effort into me. I have totally changed what I put into my mouth, all healthy foods, and only what is on my program. My favourite treat at night is a Skinny Cow dessert, the 50 calorie chocolate popsicle and I really look forward to having this every evening.
Now you have to remember I have always been a grazer all night long, even waking at night and having something to eat. So to go from a supper of 3.5 oz chicken breast or white fish, and 2 cups of veggies, to nothing until treat time, except water, how amazing is this accomplishment. I am not even hungry after supper, and a lot of evenings, not even hungry at suppertime.
I continue to stand firm in my belief that it is due to all the food that I am getting into my daily routine, never skipping a meal or a snack, breakfast and lunch being my biggest meals of the day, so how can I be hungry unless I eat just to eat.
I am living by the rule..... I eat to live, not live to eat !
