I miss eating...

Terry Poperszky

1,327 views

I have had my morning shake at 6:30, and no I'm not hungry, but I would really like to eat right now. Why? A bit of boredom, a bit of panic when I realize that I won't eat again until 11:30 (3 hours), missing pleasure that comes from the act of eating.

 

Of all the things in my life, I think that overcoming the baggage that food has will be the hardest. Not impossible by any means, but hard.

Terry I tried the protein shake for breakfast for a few mornings when I was in a hurry, but found myself to be really hungry in a couple of hours.. I pretty much stick with eggbeaters, turkey sausage and wheat toast ..it keeps me happy for 4 hours or more.

Yea, the shake is part of the problem, but I solid foods and I just don't get along in the morning. Funny thing was wasn't hungry, I just wanted to eat ;)

I went shopping the other day on my day off at the store and I asked one of the ladies I work with in the deli for a lb of pasta we sell and she said you can't eat all that I said I know I just want to have a few bites as they see how much I eat and stay full and satisified on what I drink or eat , then I had to tell her it was for the family mostly so I got it home and I ate 3 bites and I was satisified on it but then y stomache started to bloat so no pasta for me but it was good and satisfied the craving I had , however I don't need my stomache to expand as this is why I got banded lol plus my over eating and not knowing when to stop so I am glad this tool helps me recognize now.

It's definitely a tough one to overcome. I caught myself last week going after spoonfuls of peanut butter a bit too often. Seems I had a bit of a sweet tooth. I guess there are worse things I could have eaten. O the flip side my interest in food has been in decline for months. I don't even enjoy going out to dinner anymore...

My "I miss eating " time is evening. I am trying to think of snacks that are:

Satisfying to chew on

Taste good

High in protein

Low in carbohydrate

Just thought of something. Next time I go to the grocery store, I'll buy pork rinds, and then not allow myself to pig out. (Pun not intended)
