Day 5, Tracking all Food on Spark

Friday, July 16, 2010

Here it is, 10 pm. I have returned from our evening out. Yes, I did follow my plan and stick to what I planned to order. Oh, I am a still a little hungry, but it will be time for bed soon. I like to think of hunger as the fat cells screaming bloody murder as they leave my body. So good bye to a little more fat!

I hope that soon I will get used to eating less and not be so aware of that subtle hunger. I guess the body is so smart that it knows when it is in calorie deficit, which is necessary for weight loss.

Family get-together will be day after tomorrow. I have bought fresh veggies to make a
tray for snacking and will also bring some deviled eggs to share. Usually there is plenty of junk food available at the party, so I need to have some food that I can eat guilt-free.

Tomorrow is going to be a hard workout day, so I need to get to sleep.

    Wonderful attitude to support your success, SK! Food tracking is key, especially if, like so many of us, you are not always conscious of what you're doing to yourself by scarfing something! Do my tracking in a notebook, and when I skip it for more than a few days, old habits, impulses and excuses tend to sneak back in ... just how it goes, I guess!

    As an habitual absent-minded Grazer, I used to have a handmade happy sign in my kitchen that read, "Hungry, Merrikate? GOOD for you -- go DO something fun to celebrate!" It did help steer me away from nibbling so that I found other comforts.

    Am going to adopt your image of the screeching fat cells creating phony hunger -- terrific!!
