new patterns of thinking

Friday, June 05, 2009

Having been sick of fairly slow progress during the last month I decided to really watch my food intake. Thoughts patterns along the lines of "you're a smaller person now and smaller people don't need second helpings of food. We only need enougt food which to fulfil nutritional needs.
In heavier days I would heap my plate with vegetables to get that full feeling after a meal, terrified that if I didn't, I might snack or binge after the main meal. Thanks to the healthy habits that SP is responsible for helping me to develop., I no longer fear binging or snacking after a meal and so don't need to overload my plate as I used to. Consequently things have moved - measurements and the scale. I am close to staying below 140 pounds. Last year in October 2008 I was 174 pounds. I feel convinced utterly that no amount of unecessary eating is worth losing what I have now. emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations! It sure seems like we have to change our thinking first, doesn't it? That is a lot of extra weight to be rid of. Congratulations!

    WTG Petal. That is great news.

    I was a vege filler upper too cos I was afraid of never having enough.

    These days i am supposed to be eating 5 or 6 meals a day, and am finding it rough going.
    I am not used to eating like that. I was used to having one or two enormous meals in a day.

    Slowly slowly wins the race.

    Hugs Wispy.

    A food diary is a startling way to access:

    eating patterns:

    what, when, where

    how much, portions etc

    But do factor in some of those 'special treats' so as not go to binge mode.

    I have recently changed my whole days eating pattern, caused by 'who knows what' and it has made a huge difference....I don't know whether it's particularily 'better/healthy' wise but I haven't put on any weight, nor am I binging!
