Me being thin, day 2

Well, I don't think it has much to do with me wondering if I'm "full" or "hungry" all day long -- but I dropped just over 2 pounds since Monday (I didn't weigh myself yesterday -- I do usually weigh myself daily, it's actually good to see what things I do or eat that have effects -- I'm completely aware not to get down on myself for a 2 pound gain that might just be that time of the month or whatnot). So, I'm also aware this 2 pound loss could just be from not eating out now that my mom's gone, etc.
Anyway, we ate last night at enrichment, and I made sure to share my slow eating with everyone at the table. They all looked at me like I was insane that I have no clue when I'm full... of course, everyone else at the table is skinny and cute {sigh}. Anyway, I did really well. I made sure not to put too large a portion on my plate, and I did end-up eating all of it (I was checking between each slow bite to see if I felt full), and I still wasn't full -- so I was able to have dessert. I only got a little, and 1/2 way through that I suddenly felt like it was time to be done. So I was. I stared at that blob of chocolate triffle on my plate the rest of the evening, but I didn't eat it.
So, for breakfast I had about 3/4 of my bowl of cereal (which wasn't as large as the bowl of cereal I ususally pour). I think I'm full.
Frankly, I have no clue.


  1. I think you're doing well.

    I am going to try the stopping when I'm full thing. Because when I was super skinny I never finished my meals. Never. Because I was full. Now I just bust right through that barrier and I know I do.

  2. Hehehe, that makes me giggle..."frankly, I have no clue!" I'm like you, I don't think I know when I'm full! I guess that's why it's a good idea to take a small to reasonable portion. that way if you do eat it all it wasn't too much. You're doing great!
