Wow!! I don't require all 12 inches to be satisfied (not aiming for full anymore)!

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

I ventured out to Subway and ordered the Oven roasted Chicken breast sub, no cheese, no dressing (they didn't have fat free, so I wait until I got home), full of veggies but unfortunately no black olives for me today.

Anywhoo...I am getting sidetracked.

I fell pry to the marketing "geniuses" and order the footlong for $5 instead of the 6" for $3.50. I would usually eat all 12" without thinking. But since I have been eating slower and listening to my body signals, I noticed that I became satisfied after eating most of the 6". I was really surprised.

The other half is tucked away in the fridge for lunch at work. And I am ok with that.

I am learning new things about myself everyday. Today...I learned size does matter and that bigger is not always better. lol

    emoticon DONE GIRL, I'm glad u made a healthy choice for lunch. Give yourself CREDIT for that and YES, it is so important to listen to your body and STOP eating when u know u have had enough. Keeping the other half for later was a GOOD idea. emoticon

    emoticon Way to make great choices today! I have a big problem with my eyes being bigger than my stomach, and it definitely takes time to replace that habit with better ones! Cheers to discovering the best thing about $5 footlongs-- they're 2 meals in one! Have a great week :)

    I feel you about usually finishing what I have in front of me and not listening to what my body has to say.

    I have been trying to just make my plate and not put everything on the table. I also wait for 20 min or so after I am finish telling myself that if I am still hungry I can get more....but I have went back yet:)

    Keep up the hard work emoticon

    emoticon emoticon If we take the time to read our body signals we will be pleasantly surprised. I have the habit of gobbling and then feeling so stuffed and uncomfortable. emoticon
