I know I'm not hungry and that my behavior modification has to include not giving in to every whim.
I've been paying attention to hunger versus satisfaction and have been hearing more about scales on television and elsewhere.
The following was borrowed from the intuitive eating blog. They have several scales listed, but this one seems to be the clearest. Satiety seems to peak at 6. Any number larger than that is not a goal for me.
10: Stuffed to the point of feeling sick (Thanksgiving full!)
9: Very uncomfortable, tired
8: Uncomfortably full
7: Feel you have eaten just a little bit too much
6: Comfortable, satisfied [stop eating]
5: Just noticing the first signs of hunger [slow down, if eating]
4: Hungry, ready to eat [Eat at this point]
3: Very hungry
2: Extremely hungry, irritable
1: Starving, can't concentrate, dizzy
I need to remind myself, I'm not hungry right now. I'm a 6 and not even close to a 5 or lower. The hefalump in me is going to have to STFU and wait till breakfast.
Still fucking fat. Still fucking working on it.
