Alyx's Journal

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

Driven to distraction
Posted on 08/08/2010 @ 3:48 PM

I had another epiphany. Working the Friday Night Shift, cranking away, I realized I was just a smidge hungry. So I thought, “What do I want?” (It still amazes me that the answer isn’t always automatically “chocolate and cheetos”!) And then I thought “What do I have?” I was at the office, not at home or out and about. And, then, I thought, “YES!” Chocolate covered malted milk balls – and I couldn’t even remember when I last had some. So I thought some more (not too much) and decided nine was the perfect number. I put them out on a pretty little plate (gotta be civilized, even at the office), and thoroughly enjoyed the first three, while still feverishly working away. When I reached for the next one – they were all gone! Hey! Then it dawned on me – I was the only one in the office, and I had eaten all nine of those glorious chocolate covered malted milk balls and didn’t even enjoy six of them! Never again! From now on, if I treat myself I will make sure I thoroughly enjoy it.
