Itty bitty amounts of food
Wednesday, March 18, 2009
I have been on Spark since May 2008. You would think by now I would have retrained my mind and body as to how much food we should have. NOT! I am still not on "cruise control" when it comes to keeping my eating on plan. I bought a new food scale because after my old one died I suspected a bit of portion creep. I found many things I judge pretty well--all the things I don't like where I'm ok with itty bitty portions! I'm sorry but one ounce of cheese is just way too tiny. And my favorite bread weighs in at 3 ounces for such a little piece (must be the whole wheats). I admit that I appreciate my food more now that it comes in petite, it seems much more tasty. But I don't seem to be able to stop wanting more. Especially when I ramp up my exercise, that makes me really hungry. My biggest worry is that I will succumb to my desire to eat more. It's just so tempting and I feel so weak. I'm so much happier without the 50 pounds I lost but some days that isn't even enough to distract me from fantasizing about the next thing I'm going to eat. Or dealing with the disappointment when I see the itty bitty food on my plate at the next meal. When will I be transformed to a really healthy thinking person?
