A crazy idea

Friday, May 13, 2011

It's Friday the 13th, and I have this crazy idea today. I am going to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm not. Regardless how good the food is. I'm just gonna stop. I'm not going to eat anything today that I can't get again, so why not stop when I'm no longer hungry? The only potential hitch is...

Can I recognize when I'm full, and will I listen to it?

Sometimes I know I'm full and yet it tastes so yummy I keep on truckin', like it's an endurance event. Just push through it! Yah, baby! I've basically stopped eating when I ran out of food my whole life. So this is a new thing. I'm not committing to doing it every day for a week, just today. Maybe I'll love it so much and feel so great I'll do it tomorrow or Sunday. But I will today for sure.

    I'm a notorious member of the wolf it down club. The only reason I can think of for this is that I was one of four kids and if something tasy was served you had to eat fast or else it was gone!

    I feel ya! I was the team leader of the clean plate club and I hated leftovers so cleaning my plate was a must!!! The scale didn't start to move until I came to grips with the concept of portion control and eating slower to allow the body to realize I was full and then actually listening! It's still a struggle sometimes but what good is a victory without a battle?? So good luck with this thing you may even like it emoticon
