I made a big milestone today

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I turned a corner, saw the light, reached a milestone...

Today I was having a mid morning snack (banana, yogurt and almonds) and about half way through I realized that I had had enough. Old me would have continued eating because it tasted really good and I was enjoying it. Old me might not have even felt the signal of feeling full, satisfied, enough!

New me took the remaining half and put it in a small container in the refrigerator. I had tracked it already and just decided to leave it tracked.

So I just checked and I still needed a few calories to hit my minimum so I pulled yogurt leftovers out and added some cereal to it for some crunch and the cereal gave me the 50 calories I needed (plus finished the calories that I had logged during the snack but only ate half). I had figured if I didn't go back and finish that snack today I would need to edit my log and cut each portion I had already logged by 50% but if I ate it it would already be logged.

yay for the new me listening to hunger/full signals!

    emoticon I do that as well: I split my snack into 2 snacks so that i am not overly full. It takes a lot to hear your body. Congrats that you're being quiet enough to listen and then take action.

    What a great step forward, to be able to listen to that signal of being full. When I think of how often I over ate, ate to the point of feeling sick and being in pain. It is a beautiful blessing to know I am full and be able to walk away. Great job!

    Yes! It's great when we can finally hear what our bodies are telling us and know what we need, not what we want. Good for you!
