Days 17 & 18
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Overate and overwatched TV yesterday. Gave permission to cats to 'hold me hostage' so I stayed on the couch - especially our 20YO oldster cat. Rose.
Day 17 - Stop Wasting food
Did I ever waste food into myself yesterday.
I did leave a bit of food on my plate - offered it to N. How did it feel? At that point I had overeaten so much that I was feeling maybe ashamed, out of control or not much at all. I wish I had journalled before reaching for food.
Day 18 - Retrain Your Eating habits
I do not remember getting the message about cleaning my plate - no Clean Your Plate Club or "There are starving children in ..." sayings. Yet, I think I have always cleaned my plate. I expect it was modelled for me, especially by my mother who has major eating issues.
For the rest of today, I will leave some food uneaten at each snack or meal.
