Stopping When Satisfied

Confession: I'm having a hard time stopping when satisfied while eating this week.

My mother-in-law is staying with us for a few weeks so that my husband can make her a new set of dentures and she is an amazing cook of all things traditionally mexican. We're talking food from Mexico, not a Mexican restaurant.

I haven't been overeating like in the past and I am making pretty healthy choices during the day, but I'm not stopping when satisfied at dinnertime. I think I'm going to have to add salads or sauteed veggies to my dinner to fill me up, so that I don't want too much of her wonderful rice and yummy meat with tortillas.

This is another learning time for me in my eating life. I'll be glad when I get this figured out. I'm determined not to gain weight the month she is here, and I'd really like to see a loss! We'll see....


  1. The true test I must say is when you have company for a while (as you and I well know) and yet still have a loss. I will be rooting for you!! You can do this!

  2. Leah, I can totally understand where you are coming from. I am having the same exact problem this week. In fact, I was just thinking about how I keep on eating, even though I am full just today at supper. Grrr!
