and I'm back

Friday, September 17, 2010

I have been terrible about sparking lately. I just started graduate school and with all the craziness associated with that I just haven't had time to spark. But while I haven't been tracking my food, I have been mentally watching what I eat and trying to add more exercise in everyday. I've been biking to school, taking the stairs, and skipping dinner if I'm not hungry.

I've been really trying to listen to my body and take cues that way and it has been amazing to see how my eating habits change. I'm not always very good at it. (sometimes my body tells me one piece of pizza is enough but I certainly don't listen to that emoticon )

I thought that I wasn't making any progress. But this morning on a whim I pulled out a pair of capris that a month ago were too tight and pulled them on. Then I rechecked the size tag.... size 12. What!!!! I haven't fit a size 12 in a year. They fit perfectly- not even a little bit too tight. I will definitely be wearing these capris all week...

Anyone else having success with trying to listen to their body cues when it comes to eating instead of just counting calories?
