I got this crazy idea earlier this week that I would go a week without recording my food just to "see what would happen". Today is the first day of not recording and it has been TOUGH! Last night I even had dreams that I started to binge because I figured that if I didn't have to record that it didn't really matter what I ate. I started my day with my typical breakfast (mini wheats and milk) and had my usual morning snack (fiber one bar and a cup of hot cider). It's lunch time and I am starving. I know that I've had enough to eat up until this point, but not recording it makes me feel like I haven't really eaten. Does this make any sense???
I was reading Ann's blog about how she was setting a goal of recording every day this week. Ironic, huh? I told her that my goal was not to record for a week and she called it "Big Girl Weight Loss". She hit the nail on the head. I am terrified of "Big Girl Weight Loss"! There is nothing magical about recording my food. When I started recording it was a tool to help me learn how to eat. I *think* that I have learned what I need, but am fearful to trust myself enough to make those decisions. This might be a long week.... My goal is to post daily for the next week to try to gain some clarity as I continue to learn about myself and my relationship with food.
