Restaurants

Went out for dinner last night, ordered really well. Salad, grilled chicken, rice. Well, then hubby's plate came with yummy spreads and falafel balls and pita bread and in the end we ended up sharing and I ate way too much. Felt a little ill after. That's quite a change for me. I used to be able to eat as much as I wanted and not feel ill or really full. I always thought of my stomach as a bottomless pit. I mean I could eat. But as I am trying to cut back on portions, my body seems to be adapting and I just can't eat the volume.
That's good, right? I mean who wants to feel sick, but if it will help to control the eating when out then I am all for it. I am still quite full and feeling a little queasy, but I ate a solid breakfast (2 rye toast, one egg, latte) so that I would have enough energy for the day and I am sipping tea, and will continue to until lunch. Again, I will try to keep portions reasonable and not overeat today.
Still no exercise for the week. Gotta wrap my head around that, I guess I am not really ready to add it in. It will come.
I will do this, I will.

  1. It is good to recognize your body's satiety signals. I hate that sick feeling that comes when I have stuffed myself. I find if I feel about 80% full it's perfect. Enough to fuel me, give me energy but leave me satisfied without overeating to the point of yuck-ness.

    Good luck with the exercise. You can, of course, continue to lose without it so don't beat yourself up if the thought of it is dragging you down.

    Maybe find something you love, listen to a great podcast and go for a walk, or just get out and enjoy spring around you. It doesn't have to be a big heavy-duty session if you're not ready for it.

    Good luck!
