Life is all about doing things at the right time. Knowing when to go, when to speak, knowing when to stop. For me this week was a test of knowing when to stop… eating.
This past week I wanted to snack more, take seconds at dinner, drink endless bottles of wine and scarf down all holiday cookies I wanted. Did I? Nope, not really anyways. Sure I ate yummy Oreo balls and AMAZING cheesy spinach dip, but what I realized is that I knew when to quit. A month ago I would have eaten mounds of food while eating a dozen cookies with out even realizing it(or at least when my stomach hurt).
Although I never really felt full after meals this week, I did try really hard to pay attention to my “full factor”. Maybe it was because I was reading up on the WW momentum plan, but knowing when to say “that’s enough and no more for me” was awesome. I still managed to taste all the yummy things I love, but I suppose I just knew when to stop.
I’m so glad I knew when to start letting myself become healthy again too. Now I look forward to more “knowing when” moments. Maybe soon I’ll know when to buy smaller jeans…
