A Clue Perhaps?
Wednesday, March 13, 2013
It would seem that there are many of my friends who are also feeling a bit hungrier than usual lately so I certainly am in good company. If it's the changing of the clocks or the season, hopefully we'll get past this soon.
This morning as I stepped on the scale, I had the glimmer of another clue to my hunger.
It appears that I may be edging closer to another loss on the scale.
I weigh daily...I only change my wt. here when there has been a consistent change either down or...up. Fluctuations occur frequently and don't mean much in the grand scheme.
Today, my scale registered another pound lost....this is the first time I'm seeing this so as I said, it isn't being logged in but it probably is an indicator that sometime in the next week or so, I will be able to do so.
Now one thing I have noticed, is that my body has this way of trying to hang on to it's status quo. It seems often, that I will follow a loss with a compensatory eating....sometimes that could be my mind doing one of those games that says...."Go ahead, have that..........you deserve it...you've lost weight." But I think it also may be that "setpoint" sort of thing too.
If indeed, this is what is going on, in part anyway, it provides a bit of a clue. This self knowledge just might give me the ammunition to fight the urge to eat more than I really should.
