Good Monday Morning!
I was going to get the blog in the Christmas spirit and blog about my favorite Christmas Ornament (I already linked up HERE). Silly me, I am not home and just realized I don’t have my camera with me — making it difficult to participate. But I will come back to it.
I do have something to write about. I was thinking about it all night and as I fell asleep. Signals that I am full.
I feel like I am always hungry!
If I am bored, I am hungry.
Working on the computer. I am probably hungry.
After working out, I am definitely hungry.
Soon after sitting down for a meal, I am still hungry.
Eating multiple, smaller, meals is sometimes hard for me to do.
But when I do break it down to many smaller meals I feel like I am eating all day.
Nothing seems to really satisfy me as of late.
I can eat fruits, veggies, or nuts and I am left craving something more.
If I eat a Luna Bar, I want something else with it or right after.
Turkey burgers, chicken sausages, or whole grain anything just don’t do it!
And drinking water or chewing gum doesn’t seem to make a difference.
The signals that are supposed to tell me NOT to eat or stop eating aren’t happening.
Or, maybe they are and I don’t hear them, or understand them.
Smart eating? Intuitive eating? Common sense?
I don’t know. But I am seriously missing some stomach-brain signals.
What I do know: I will never lose any real weight until I figure out how hear my body.
I try to look/listen for any signals and clues. I can promise that!
It’s frustrating to want to lose a significant amount of weigh but not yet have control over myself and the food I want to shove in my pie hole.
I am spending as much time as I can learning about food and eating.
I am searching for something that might make sense to me.
If any of you know something I don’t, I am all ears! 🙂
I despise the feeling that I can not do this. But I want to! And I have the most amazing supporters and friends who won’t let me fail.
