Lexie's Journal

Lexie struggles with her weight but is learning how to trust her body again with Am I Hungry?

Becoming instinctive
Posted on 07/16/2007 @ 11:40 PM

I was very hungry this morning and decided not to wait for lunch. I ate more than I needed, I think because I was too hungry. I made a conscious decision to overeat knowing I didn't need more. It wasn't even so much the taste as I think my brain just hadn't registered satisfaction yet. I also know that I wasn't focused on eating because I was working at the same time. Then a friend invited me to lunch. I wanted to go even though I wasn't hungry. I ordered and then took almost all of it home with me. Yeah! The company was good and I was glad I didn't eat more because I would have been seriously uncomfortable. Tonight I am once again not hungry for dinner; that is becoming the "norm" for me. I suspect that after I've had a chance to relax tonight hunger may kick in. I'm not concerned about it but I am kind of hoping for it because my leftovers sound really good! As with everything else in my life I am learning to let go and trust my instincts instead of trying to force myself to fit into what society says I should do. To see how Am I Hungry? can help you become an instinctive eater again, visit
