In trying to keep on track, I have developed some tricks.
· To make sure I have a sense of food amounts by sight, I practiced measuring portions with water.
· I take very small bites and chew them thoroughly. I chew them to death.
· I use a salad fork and a small plate so I will eat smaller portions.
· I brush my teeth and wash my hands as soon as I’ve eaten something to get rid of any traces of food.
In other words, I am turning into a world class weirdo.
HELP!!! I’m obsessed.
Four weeks into this ordeal, oops, I mean this exercise in developing healthy habits (groan), I can’t think about anything else. I am terrified I will blow this and let myself and everyone else down.
So I will spend this weekend calming myself down and doing the best I can. That’s all I can think of doing.
