Who is really in control?

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

These days I'm taking time to think about why I'm eating before I consume anything. I now realize that I've been on auto pilot for years and usually my eating had little to do with hunger. I'm not sure why I'm surprised by this. I guess that shows just how much I had checked out.

After dinner DH had cake for dessert. Before I would have had cake also, but last night I noticed that my hunger was satisfied after eating dinner. So no dessert for me and most importantly no feeling of deprivation. I chose not to have dessert because I was full and had no desire for any more food.
It was so simple! It's about nutrition, not feelings. emoticon
This doesn't mean I'll never have dessert again, but is a new experience for me to be so conscious about what and why I'm eating. I have the power to decide, I am in control of what I eat (or don't eat). That's a big revelation for me.
