I've heard it said that when trying to loose weight we should eat like a thin person.... but thinking like one is becoming the challange for me. I am doing a good job at passing on things that I do not need and not eating when I'm not hungry... and at keeping my protien, carb, fat, and calorie intake mostly regulated. Problem is I am starting to miss that feeling... that completely full, I've eaten all I can possibly eat, satisfied feeling.
It's odd, because I'm not really hungry- but I'm not FULL. I feel like this is likely all in my mind, or some type of brain chemistry issue, not so much my gut. Pushing past it is going to be difficult because this is when I have given in many times in the past. I just got back from a walk, when what I was thinking about doing prior to that was eating. The walk was good, but I still want food... but I am not hungry. I am going to clean the house up, drink some water, and make my kids an after school snack... and I'm not going to eat any of it (even though I will want to). I hope this phase will pass quickly. I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience... and if so, what helped you through?
