Yesterday was one of my "hungry days", but I handled it differently than I used to do. I was really hungry after lunch, but instead of finding the cookies that are around the office, I ate a half sandwich that was in the refrigerator from yesterday's lunch and I made myself a cup of tea. When I got home DH had made a really heavy meal for supper - ham, potato, roll with broccoli and salad so I had a small portion of the ham, 1/2 the potato and 1/2 the roll with a large serving of salad and broccoli. Then I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes after supper. I accepted the fact that my body was hungry, but I feed it nutritious extras rather than empty calories with sugar which would have probably left me more hungry. Then I used moderate exercise to increase my calorie burn. I feel like I am doing better with moderation and being aware of my body and its needs. I don't want to overdo it, but I want to lose weight.
