She's backkkk! I have been gone a few months and, boy, does my butt show it! I managed to gain back most of what I spent a whole years losing, but I did something I have never done before. I ate anything I wanted over the holidays. It was like a test, to see just how debauched and fat I could get. I won!
I baked and ate fudge and ate cake standing over the sink. I ate 2nd helpings of gravy and potates.
Here's the deal! I learned something. I enjoy the first 3 bites. Adn after that, it feels like a shovel into a coal mine. I keep eating, hoping to recapture the esctasy of the first bite and it is not available. No matter if you eat yourself into a coma, it is not there at the bottom of the bowl or on the tablespoon.
So, from that, I have learned that if I want a treat, I eat 1-2-3 bites and STOP! It is the hardest exercise I know- to put that damn spoon down on the table and walk away. But I FEEL better. I feel like a grown-up. I feel lighter. I feel HAPPY! (AFTERWARD, not during.)
Just trust yourself for a couple of seconds to get through the During.
