Mon, 26 Jan 2015 22:12:51 EST Satiety http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5862506 Satiety is wonderfully pleasant feeling of fullness you get as you eat, when you’re no longer hungry, but aren’t overly stuffed or uncomfortable. You are just satisfied beyond desire. <BR> <BR> <BR> this feeling is my goal. i always thought feeling fell meant stuffed. i am practicing to eat slower so i can learn this feeling to prevent overating. Sun, 25 Jan 2015 21:22:17 EST lost lbs http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5861803 i was less active this week but monitored my eating more. i lost weight! i know intense exercise burns a lot of calories but it does not help me when it ups my appetite and then i use it as an excuse to eat extra.

She paid attention to those miracles. She made those countless wonders the center of her focus, and in so doing, moved the darkness in her life into the background where it clearly belonged." <BR> <BR> Sun, 11 Jan 2015 16:23:33 EST low energy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5851328 did not do much today but did not mindlessly snack Sat, 10 Jan 2015 20:40:28 EST nutrition program - part 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5850662 met with the nutritionist for round 2 of the my time nutrition program. this time i am not sick and the hokidays are over so i can focus and dedicated to eating more mindfully.
