Just this side of full....


I've been doing better about working out these most recent weeks. And I might have found something even better!!! I've been eating better. And by that I don't mean healthier, necessarily, just smarter. Typically I eat at a pace somewhere between average and hurried. Here of late, I've been slowing down. I've enjoyed conversation while eating and taking it easy. This has helped because I've been more able to gauge when I'm getting full. And so my habits have changed, instead of stopping when I'm full...I stop just shy of full (so that two or three more bites would fill me to the top of my gauge). I've still been more than satisfied with every meal and it seems to be easier not to snack between meals. I'm hoping this will lead to me craving less and less over time and that "nearing full feeling" will come quicker and quicker, making worries over portion control a thing of my past.

Love this idea..I should try it myself..I tend to be one of the first ones done around here. I didnt think I ate fast but hmmmm maybe if I slow down some I wont have that Im so full feeling when I walk away from the table.

I tend to eat too quickly when I'm crazy hungry. Slow and spaced out . . . sounds like a good tip.
