I turned a corner, saw the light, reached a milestone...
Today I was having a mid morning snack (banana, yogurt and almonds) and about half way through I realized that I had had enough. Old me would have continued eating because it tasted really good and I was enjoying it. Old me might not have even felt the signal of feeling full, satisfied, enough!
New me took the remaining half and put it in a small container in the refrigerator. I had tracked it already and just decided to leave it tracked.
So I just checked and I still needed a few calories to hit my minimum so I pulled yogurt leftovers out and added some cereal to it for some crunch and the cereal gave me the 50 calories I needed (plus finished the calories that I had logged during the snack but only ate half). I had figured if I didn't go back and finish that snack today I would need to edit my log and cut each portion I had already logged by 50% but if I ate it it would already be logged.
yay for the new me listening to hunger/full signals!
