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.

    The good thing about life is there is (almost) always a next time.

    Interesting thought, that eating something can be wasting food. I think your introspection will serve you well. Great job with being in touch with your feelings.
