Feeling Full

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I have been on this new journey for@ 2 months and I get really scared when I have the feeling of fullness even though I am eating healthy choices a fear always comes over me when I am full. Yes, I measure my portions and the majority of my meals consist of veggies
But after I finish eating and I feel full I get scared that I overate and will gain some pounds on the scale, I literally find it very difficult to eat my next meals instead of 3 -4 hours later I will wait until my stomach is growling before I eat again and if that's after 8pm I will not eat until the next morning. I know this isn't good but the feeling inside of me won't allow me to eat even though I know I ate the right things. Then I get annoyed because I let myself get too hungry which could have an adverse affect on the scale. Me and the scale have serious relations.... I have tried not to weigh myself every morning but I just got to know

The non scale victories are great but the pounds lost always seem much more satisfying

Any suggestions some days I go 5-8 hrs before I will allow myself to eat and during that time I am usually grumpy, tired and plain frustrated!!!!

    This is a very hard blog to read. It sounds like you really really have a hard time with this. I am so sorry. I used to eat two big meals and snack the rest of the day. Then I found out because I was diabetic that eating that way was really bad for me and I had to change my meal planning. I resisted it for years and all the good things I needed to be doing to take care of myself in regards to eating. Finally last August I was able to throw all my preconsived idea's away and start with a clean slate when I found Spark. It was so hard for me to eat about ever three hours but I did it. I had to set alarms and do alot of planning to break bad habits but I did it. I eat three meals a day and snack two two three times a day and what a change in my blood sugars. I have had so so many good things happen to my body because of these changes alone that I am now a believer and still work hard to keep my eating habits on a time clock.

    Until just last month I only weighed once a week and I kept the scale out of my house. I went to the doctors on purpose to weigh in once a week. That kept me accountable but not focused soley on the scal. Because ultimatily I want to change my eating habits what and how I eat more than to lose weight. Yes, I want to lose weight but as a by product of doing the right things for my body. Maybe you need to change your focus. What ever it takes to take your focus off the scale and onto healthy eating, and activity instead. Good luck with tackling this I know it is one step at a time and they are not easy steps but they are worth it. Hugs Susan
