I Don't Have to Eat It All!
Saturday, January 05, 2013
I am getting into a state of mentality where I will take less than a serving and I will leave at least one bite on my plate. I am going to try to be more conscious of when I am full as well and stop eating. I have always "cleaned" my plate because I was programmed to do this even after I was full or even after the food quit being so tastey. There is this wonderful stuff they make called aluminum foil or zip lock bags that can keep the food just fine for another time!
This may seem simple, but when you have lived as long as I have with the idea that you need to clean your plate, it isn't easy to change. One other thing I have realized is that when I am starving hungry it doesn't take more food than normal to fill me just because I am hungrier than normal. (Bell goes off). This may seem like a DUH, but seriously my stomache is no bigger if I am hungrier than normal. It will still hold a cup of soup and one serving a crackers comfortably and keep me from feeling hungry for 3 or 4 hours!
I just love learning this stuff about me.
