Whoa! Did those words actually come out of my mouth?!!!!? Is my stomach finally shrinking? Am I finally able to discern when I am satisfied and need to stop eating?
Yes, I actually said those words this morning at breakfast. I could not believe that I was unable to eat my usually amount for breakfast this morning. I am a breakfast girl. I love to eat breakfast and usually will consume the majority of my daily calories during that meal if I let myself. However, since joining and "getting serious" on Sparkpeople, I have learned to space out my calories to other meals and snacks throughout my day. BUT, last night I got a strong craving for a good, hearty breakfast. I even got up earlier this morning just to fix it. Then as I started eating I barely made it through the meal and I realized I was full....so I stopped eating. This is truly an accomplishment for me. I am proud of myself that I recognized the signs of being full and that I listened to my body and stopped eating.
How about the rest of my day? Well... pretty good. Only went over by about 30 calories and even though my mind wanted to come home and crash after work. My body took over and I even got in a great 20 minute walk up and down my road.
Not perfect yet, but making some great strides in the "healthy" direction!!!
