You see, when I prepare a meal I'm thinking, "There is NO WAY this will fill me up. What else do I have to eat? I think I have some Cheetos in here somewhere..."
Mind you, this is a conversation I have with myself before the first meal is even cooked through! Knowing that the portion is plenty [aka I don't think I'm even physically capable of starving myself #hungrygirlprobz], I've started lying to myself in preparation of the meal.
"I am going to be SO FULL when I finish this baked potato.
I may not even be able to finish the whole thing!"
"Baby carrots kind of look like Cheetos.... and they taste just as good!"
So I persist. Anytime I feel sick to my stomach lately, I think, "Must be all that sugar. I should really lay off the sugar." While there is a noticeable relationship between belly aches and sugar consumption in my life, I don't know that a doctor could pinpoint it as my sole source of nausea. Hitting the vino too hard on occasion could earn an honorable mention, perhaps. Whatevs. I'm taking it. If it helps me stop chowing down 4 donuts and an iced coffee in one sitting, I'm game.
Wish me luck, my little loves!
And send me your favorite healthy-but-delicious snacks and treats, please! This girl's gotta eat.
