Over Thanksgiving I ate way too much, what a shocker! But I also came to the conclusion and realization that I do not have to eat until I am so stuffed I have to unbutton my pants... wow a milestone...
It made me think of the handout they give you at Weight Watchers about how to assess how you fell weather you are empty or super full. I look at the super full emoticon with its little puggy face looking like it will explode any second and realized I do not have to do that to myself. I like to eat, I love the taste of food and sometimes I never want it to end. That is weird to me. I do not understand that mentality, but I have it. Now I just have to control it.
The other day I was making breakfast and decided that instead of the full breakfast I generally have that has way to many calories, I would cut it in half. So, I had one slice of bread, with a smidgen of mustard and ketchup with my one scrambled egg on it. Skipped the light mayo and the cheese. Had only one cup of coffee with non-dairy creamer. Low and behold, I was not stuffed, but satisfied and saved myself about 150 calories to be used elseware. And I also found that the food held me over until my usual 10am fruit snack. I was not starving at all like I thought I would be.. imagine that! What a milestone!
Food is no longer my master.... it is my servant!
