Even though I’m basically six months into this journey I still have severe issues with food. It really is like some sort of addiction. I think quitting smoking years ago was easier than quitting my bad eating habits.
Certainly after six months of no smoking I didn’t crave it anymore. I could be around other people smoking and it didn’t bother me or cause me to want one.
This past week has been really rough. Part of the reason is in the pictures above. There have been four birthdays celebrated at my house this week and my wife has made amazing treats for each of them (I only had pictures of three).
My biggest problem with eating is portion size though. You should be able to have treats like this from time to time without it affecting weight loss at all. It’s good to treat yourself. My problem is I have big pieces, and then go back for more.
Being on the 5:2 diet I’m pretty sure my stomach has shrunk which should help matters but I need to get used to it. The past two days I’ve had too big of portions of supper even. To the point where I actually physically hurt when I’m done. I really need to learn to take less and slow down when eating. That way my body can tell me I’m full before I jam to much food, that I don’t need, into me.
