Don't eat till your full

Sunday, March 22, 2009

So I'm over my tummy bug yah!! The only good thing that came out of that is I lost 2kg in a couple of days but now I'm too scared to weigh myself again so I have decided to challenge myself to waiting a whole week or even two if I can handle it. I remember when I started this wol I said to my dh and myself I'm only weighing once a week because I don't want to get obsessed and now I'm weighing daily so I have to really remind myself about the health benefits as opposed to what the scale says, it's just very hard.

I think my stomach shrunk in the couple of days of the tummy bug and I did the greedy thing on friday night and had my favourite meal - a lettuce wrap filled with chicken, bacon, avocado, camembert, relish and aioli. It was beautiful but I ate wayyyy too much to the point I felt physically uncomfortable and wanted to throw up just to feel better. I didn't because I can't make myself do that yuck! So instead I had reflux and horrible pain until 4am that morning, arrrrrhhh!!!! What do I learn from this....don't eat until I'm full. Everytime I eat now I don't feel full initially but then I do a couple of hours later, I think this is because protein and fat aren't immediate energy.


  1. Hey doll,

    Glad to hear that you are better. I can sympathise on the weighing-in thing. Try to hold off for the week - you can do it!

    Sounds like your meal was really yummy, I'm sure I would have overeaten too!

    Hey I started the Atkins induction a couple of days ago, no worries so far. The one thing is, I will want to go more than 6 hours without eating at times. (I don't breakfast and often skip lunch coz I'm lazy about prepping stuff for work. Plus I want to do a couple of 24hr fasts a week). Do you think this would work against me. Any tips for a newbie?


  2. Well Dr atkins does recommend not going further than 6 hours without a meal during the day but I also don't think he had interest in fasting. I personally only fast if I really need too, eg to break a stall which I've been going through lately but otherwise I consistenly lose each week and never have to fast.

    I don't know if the fasts will work against you but the fact that your going quite low in carbs anyway you may not need to fast, but I guess you need to see what works for you :)

  3. Thanks doll,

    You're right - I will just have to see what happens.

    Good luck on breaking that plateau; I'm sure it will happen.

  5. Hey Mark

    Thanks for your kind comment :) I too am very pleased with the progress I've made, all up I'm down 45lbs now so time for an update pic perhaps for my site. I will definately stay in touch, i'd love to be a success story on your website once I've reached my goal which is another 40-50lbs away yet. I'm also hanging out for your book, not long now :)
