Well, as I continue on this journey in the land of drinkable food, I have come upon some very startling revelations. I eat a lot. No, I mean A LOT. I guess I was fooling myself when I used to tell people that I didn't eat much during the day. I lied (although not intentionally) to everyone and more importantly, to myself. Now that I am not actually chewing food for my meals, I am realizing how many times a day I would make myself a snack. How many times I was sitting at my desk doing work that I found tedious and I would jump up and make a snack. Or, I am at home, at loose ends, and I find myself wanting to eat something. I kind of knew that I was sort of an emotional eater, but this is ridiculous. I use food as a tool to get through the day and that is NOT a healthy habit. Going through this medically supervised weight loss is really making some things clear to myself. I have an unhealthy relationship with food and I need to break the cycle. Food should be enjoyed, but it should not mark the progress of my day. I am hoping that when I start introducing regular meals back into my diet, that I am able to get past this and not fall back into old habits.

    You're not alone. I was the same way until I started posting what I ate. Then, I was amazed to see how much I really did eat during the day.

    Once you start eating real food, you'll be just fine!

    I am on the same boat as you! I did not realise how much I really do eat. I eat the 3 meals a day. ANd snack threw out the rest of the day. My biggest weekness is a bowl of ice cream EVERY night after the kids are in bed i grab a movie or tv show i like sit down and enjoy. Its really showing in my weight. How do you brake the cycle? I have tried before but then fell back. I am now starting walk my way out of it again. And hopefuly i can stay afloat and not sink back into temptation. Good luck! I know we can do this it just takes time and dedication.
