Remembering how I feel

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

I need to remember how I feel when I eat crappy food. See when others say they no longer like the taste of "this or that", I haven't had that happen. But my body says it.

For years if I ate pizza, I would feel sick to my stomach. And at times my husband wasn't happy with me because of it. Lately, I realize if I eat not good for me, the same thing happens.

Today, a student gave me a huge slice of cake. I was just going to eat one little bite and bring the rest home. Ummm, that didn't work. I didn't eat it all but maybe half. Now I feel sick.

Why do I do this to myself. I have to learn that it isn't self control but by eating these things, not only do I not get to my personal goal weight, I feel sick!

I need to remember this feeling. With time, I hope to get better about not eating bad for me foods.

    I love that you are realizing this! It is very hard to resist these foods that taste so good but are so bad for us and then later on upset our stomachs,etc.. I am at the same place you. I have very little resistance, so it's easier to just not be around it, but unfortunately life just doesn't work that way. Keep us informed on how you are doing on this and give pointers as you go.

    You all have some really great suggestions. I do allow myself a small dessert very other week or so but if an additional cake occasion creeps up I just say no thank you, it's not my treat day.

    I have the same problem too! Sugar and greasy foods! Love to eat them, but pay the price. emoticon

    Same problem here, today I went and got a sonic burger and onion rings. Bad idea, I was so nauseous after a couple of bites, I couldn't eat it. Now my body is retaliating against me.

    I've never lost my taste for certain foods either but I do crave some healthy things that shock me, like bell peppers on my veggie sandwiches. emoticon

    Sorry you are feeling poorly. Hope you feel better soon. emoticon

    I can empathize. I was so good for 3 cycles then I decided to take last weekend off before starting all over. I knew that wheat was making me sick but I had a cheeseburger on a regular bun and I had pizza. I ate too much sugar and had a headache. I think that I have to start doing self-hypnosis to tell myself that those foods are poison or disgusting. I read an article that someone used to imagine their favorite food crawling with maggots. Ick! Maybe I should try that next time! emoticon

    I have this same problem when people bake or cook things especially for me. Last week a student brought in a cake for her birthday. I cut myself a small slice (instead of letting someone else cut it for me) and then that was all I had. I find if I remind myself when I put it on my plate that I can only eat a small amount then I'm a lot better about sticking to it, especially since I hate to get seconds in front of other people.

    If someone gives you a slice of cake, try cutting the part you want to eat and wrapping the rest and putting it away BEFORE you start eating that little bit. This helps me to be less tempted as well!

    You've taken the first step..accepting and recognizing that you're body doesn't like certain food. emoticon Just remember that the next time the food comes around. If you don't want to hurt someone's feelings, take just a very small piece. It may satisfy your "craving" without disrupting your body's natural functions so you won't feel as sick.

    Good luck!
