I am not good at listening to myself because I am too busy teaching, helping and listening to others. It is what I do for a living. I am the type that is too much in my head and not much into my body. It seems too selfish, but if I am going make this change I am going to have to listen to myself, my body and my needs accurately.
So Spangle explains that you have to listen to your abdonimal muscles that cover your stomach. She goes on to make you think like this- "When you feel way too full, you hold your stomach, not your head. So notice the way your stomach feels, not what your head thinks, you'll be able to recognize the early signs that indicate you're feeling satisfied."
Here are the actions to take-
- Eat a snack or meal and stop when it feels just right
- Describe how it feels just right in the magic notebook
- Appreciate the healthy, positive body that doesn't need to feel stuffed
- I want to feel comfortable and satisfied when I eat
NEVER GIVE UP!
JUST ONE MORE DAY!
YOU CAN DO IT!
