Dad's Birthday

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Today it was very tough to keep to my 1200-1500 calorie intake! We went out to Golden Coral for my dad's Birthday. I made sure I ate small portions and never went back for more. I love food sooooo much that watching others eat and not getting up to fill up a second plate, and piling it was like torture! I'm proud of myself for all that I have accomplished and just kept thinking to myself that it is not worth it to lose my progress. Food will not win. I am in charge!

    KATYAYANNA I totally agree with you. ZRIEO14 Bad habits are hard to break and overeating is a big one for a lot of people out there including myself. I LOVE FOOD! I have just chosen to work toward a better me and not let this bad habit run my life. It wasn't the fact that I was hungry that was hard to deal with; it was my desire to eat because it tasted good. Plus everyone else was still eating making it harder to resist. My will to be healthier is strong right now though. Stronger than my will to taste all the deliciousness I want lol! DEEBEE I just love how much support you give me!!! It was very difficult to resist, but I am proud that I did so. Any other time I probably would have had seconds and thirds piled high lol! It was a lot of fun to watch my baby boy smile and squeal as he enjoyed yummy food and family! ^_^

    You did so well! You have a right to be proud of yourself, because it was not at all easy to deny yourself. And you had fun even without eating a lot of food, didn't you?

  Zrie014, that's not exactly true. There's an instinct that is triggered when animals (even humans) are in a group eating situation: a primal part of us still feels the, "Eat! Eat more than everyone else, so that we can survive!" urge. Yes, we have the capacity to recognize and suppress it, but that instinct is still there. It's not just about not letting yourself get hungry.

  if you do not let yourself get hungry, then you will not have any problems
