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.
