Only eating when I am HUNGRY. I caught myself eating yesterday simply because it was dinner time and I had cooked. Not good. Just because dinner is on the table doesn't mean I have to eat yet. I think this may be part of why I am stalled right now. Also, stopping when I am satisfied is an issue I need to pay closer attention to.
I think the reason this has been a problem for me is because if cooked a meal, and my son said "Mom, I'm just not hungry right now." I would say "Well, too bad, this is dinner time and this when we eat." So, I feel like I should follow that same rule. When that is a stupid rule anyway. I could answer him with "Well, you don't have to eat, but at least sit down at the table and visit with us while WE eat." There is no reason I couldn't adopt that same philosophy for myself.
So, this week I will lpay close attention and only eat when my stomach tells me it's time to, and stop when my stomach is telling me I am satisfied.
