Lexie's Journal

Lexie struggles with her weight but is learning how to trust her body again with Am I Hungry?

Breakfast and 3 men
Posted on 05/23/2007 @ 1:35 AM

I read the Am I Hungry? newsletter about the myths surrounding breakfast. I hated "forcing" myself to try to eat breakfast in the morning. I didn't feel hungry and I have to take my lunch at 11:30 most days which means when I eat breakfast I'm not hungry for lunch and then I'm "starving" for dinner and thus repeats that cycle... After reading the article I realized that I fall into that, "Eating too much the night before" trap. That's probably why I'm not hungry in the morning because I HAVE been hungry at times when I ate dinner really early the night before or ate a very light evening meal. So this is completely "Fixable". This morning I decided to try to break that cycle. I promised myself I would eat when I was hungry..not try to force that all important breakfast meal. Well when I got hungry I waited a little while longer to eat because I knew I would be eating lunch out and I wanted to be hungry. So lunch time came and nothing really sounded that good. I WAS hungry. I was not too hungry. I finally decided on Moo Goo Gia Pan with steamed rice for lunch. I was able to eat only as much as my body needed and I saved the rest for later. I was sitting at my desk trying to meet a couple of deadlines when suddenly I heard my name...."Leeeexxxieeeeeee" hmmmmm who is that calling me? "Lexieeeeeee you know you want me!" Is this a tall, dark, handsome man finally coming for me??!!! NOOOO it's THREE men. Muskateers to be exact. The chocolate bar down the hall and in the office vending machine was calling my name, taunting me. I answered, "YES, I want you!!!" And I enjoyed every single bite without a bit of guilt!
