But there is no way that my body is in need of food because I've consumed a lot of calories just hours earlier. To me, it's kind of like an addiction trigger. Because of the addictive properties of the food, it tricks the body into thinking it's hungry thus you consume more of it. I have tested this with myself. I am the absolute most hungry after eating a large amount of sugar and starch. My hunger is very different when I eat healthy, and it doesn't come nearly as quickly.
Very very true ... one thing after another yesterday had me going and at one point I knew I had enough but I wanted something else.

This is me the past two days only I didn't get it together last evening. I ate chips with my husband last night really late. But today makes a new beginning

Garden is finally thawed out, so I've been spending every spare moment in it trying to clean up. Planning to plant a ton of veggies and hopefully not too much of anything else. Summer might actually be coming!
Those biscuits got me yesterday also, there were three left after church. I split them (the flaky kind) so technically I only ate one but still, lol

For eating out...start out with a salad and chow down on that and a cup of water until the group finishes the appetizers...which they will do! Order the main entree with side of carbs and extra veggies. If its meat, cheese, veggies or eggs...eat it...if it's not...don't....
Friends....I was invited to a friends for a boxing party day 3 into my plan. I knew they would have pizza. I ate an apple and banana during my drive, picked up a diet soda, almonds and had salami sticks and cheese in my purse. I was nice and content when I arrived. Thanks 7-11 for having the options!
I use this site to remind me of what I should be doing!!!!
Great weigh in yesterday
On eating out ask for a to-go container at the beginning of your meal and place half of you meal in it. Eat part now, have the other tomorrow
since the portions are usually big, just a thought and what I do when no one will eat what I have ordered.
Oh my goodness do I miss 7-11 and WAWA. We don't have either here
. Great NSV before the boxing party,
Weigh in today 163.8 up .8 from yesterday ... it's gonna be a great day
