I am working on "retraining" myself... I don't have to eat every piece of food on my gigantic plate..... even though i still hear my mother's voice saying "You know there are starving people in other countries!! You should not ever waste your food!! Clean your plate" So here is some food for thought..lol.. no pun intended..
1. Use a small plate
2. Pack on a ton of food on a teeny plate
3. Put a lot less food on the big plate
3. Make sure most is veggies
4. Eat 1/2 put the rest in the fridge
Biggest thing for me is I have got to get up from the table! As soon as I am done eating...GET UP GET UP GET UP!! That should not include eating the rest of the kids food (because if i threw it away it would be "wasting".. ugh...thanks mom..lol) or sit there and get 2nds and 3rds...purely because I am still sitting there..
I think I might develop a sign for the fridge that says "Stop a minute Stupid!!! You just ate.. are you really hungry??? Drink a full glass of water... maybe some gum.. then go OUTSIDE !! ABSORB THE SUN.. WALK WITH THE KIDS.. THEN come back at supper time"
So goal for now is to GET UP !!
