First week back, Success!
Monday, December 03, 2012
I had a great week, I lost 4 lbs and I am feeling a little better overall. Yey!
I have been really working on paying attention to my body's hunger and fullness cues and how fast I eat. I am used to eating way too fast. I caught myself shoveling another bite in my pie hole before I had swallowed the previous one. Yikes! It's not a contest! No wonder I often feel stuffed after a meal. I am trying to slow wa-a-ay down, taking a sip of water or tea between mouthfuls, and taking mini breaks during eating by putting down the fork and taking a breath, and of course swallowing before I refill.
This week my goal is to walk at least one mile a day, track all of my food, and to continue the slow, mindful eating.
I saw a great mini series on Youtube about obesity and sugar, called "The Skinny on Obesity" I recommend it. Here is a link:
