quick update

Saturday, August 15, 2015

So I made my list, and picked one, which is paying more attention to my satiety level and stopping eating when I'm satisfied.

But I also put on there: "find a new doctor". So on Monday I called the medical group and made an appointment with a new doctor. emoticon It's not until the end of September, but for a new doctor appointment, I'm good with that. I don't have anything pressing, but I do want to schedule some screening stuff, so September it is!

As far as watching my satiety level this week, I'm going to say I have had a couple of successful moments. The other night we had steak, salad and Larry's famous potatoes, and I actually left some of the salad in the bowl after taking stock and realizing I WAS satisfied, and not stuffed, so I stopped. Larry ended up finishing the salad....

I also had a day at work where I forgot to have my afternoon snack (including the cherries I had brought). I didn't realize this until the next day when I went for my fruit snack and saw the cherries there.

So paying more attention to my hunger/satiety levels is doable, and I'll keep working it!

    I like the idea of paying attention to satiety--I think that would be a good way of listening to what your body is actually saying. Going to do this tonight as a strategy--thank-you!

    I sometimes just keep eating as well just because I was eating. When I pay attention I tend to stop eating sooner. Your blog is a great reminder.

    I hope the new doctor works out. I'm always amazed at how long it takes to get into a new doctor, mostly since usually I need to get into a doctor for a reason (and when you've just moved, you have to start over) and it can be troublesome.

    I find that I eat much less when I'm busy at work. It's when I'm trying to make it through the day that I mindlessly eat. Some days, I'm just hungry all day, others I know I eat, snacks included, because the day is slow and I'm basically stuck in my office and it gives me something to do. Same at home sometimes in the evening. I'm trying to work on it, but I know the solution for me it to get moving or work on something anything, especially at home. I have stuff at work, but I'm stuck at my desk a lot, so that's an issue. Doing pretty good these days at moving around every hour....
