Alyx's Journal

Alyx struggles with her weight and is relearning to eat instinctively with Am I Hungry?

When vacation isn't an excuse to overeat
Posted on 10/29/2009 @ 9:55 PM

Whew – vacation. Spent six days in Reno – land of the never-ending buffet. Got to see a lot of folks I see only once or twice a year, and most of the activities centered around food. Ate whatever I wanted, but maybe paid a little bit more attention that I do normally – sort of like the bright lights of the city were keeping me alert to myself and my needs – but it didn’t seem like it. I mean, there was no monitoring, or talking to, or justification, just attention. Treated myself on one night to a small slice of carrot cake *and* a small slice of chocolate cake, because I wanted them both. Tasted great and I had no guilt. What a pleasure. Weighed the morning I flew down, and weighed again the morning after I got back - I weighed exactly the same! Wahoo! Life can be so good, when all you’ve got to worry about is vacation. (I love not worrying about food.)
