Leaving some behind.
so today's lesson is to leave some food on your plate so you begin to get use to not "eating" all of your food.
For reason's I will never understand my plate will mock me....."It's just one little bite"..."don't I look delicious".
Yesterday I was eating and hit my full point but I still had a one and a half meatloaf muffins left to eat (I had three). So I set it aside, but that half eaten muffin was more than I could take so I finished it and put the whole one away.
It's like I was afraid that my "full" sensor was wrong. I'm not going to starve. I can always have more later if I am hungry. The rational side of my brain gets it, but that little white devil just can't seem to let it go.
At home I can control this by getting a small serving size, and then if needed I can have a small second portion, that way giving myself the ability to listen to my body. But eating out is a whole new adventure. They say to share a meal or get a box right away. After 24 years of serving there is nothing more annoying that having to get a box right away, usually because you are suppose to box the left overs for the table and J will never share one meal, as we share two, so we both get a little something. Or worse he loves our local pizza buffet, I had them make me a glutton and dairy free pizza last week that was amazing and only ate three small pieces but I can't leave behind the crusts, that little white devil loves them too much.
sometimes finding our faults helps us stay out of situations where these compromise our goals.
