That Full Feeling

Friday, July 20, 2012

I finally found it!

I found my full feeling!

I am a 6 time a day overeater. I never stop. But this last week I finally made that important discovery. I have been practicing a little mindful eating, trying to follow the food to my stomach and think about every bite (not with 100% success, but making progress).

I noticed that after a certain amount that I feel the food in my stomach. It doesn't feel like full like I am used to. However, if I keep eating past that point, I never feel any other trigger telling my how full I am until well after I have eaten everything I get my hands (mouth) on and feel bloated and sick.

So this is it, my full point. It comes a whole lot sooner than I expected. And if I stop eating at it, the food swells more and gives me a satisfied feeling after a couple of minutes.

I am really excited. I didn't think I was capable of stopping eating early. I can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
