When you don't experience hunger, you don't experience satisfaction.
I've pulled out my Ganeen Roth books and that sentence was pretty profound. And when I saw Terri yesterday and we talked about that statement and I expanded on it, she made me repeat it.
When you don't experience hunger, you don't experience satisfaction. When I'm binging (which I have been for the past few weeks), I'm not satisfied. Nothing I eat is satisfying. The mouth hunger cannot be quenched. And yet, I continue to eat, hoping that I will be satisfied.
And so I have to be more aware of what I'm eating, when I'm eating. I've been eating out of habit, overeating out of habit, and eating when I'm not hungry. But eating because the food is there, because it's noon, because because because. And not really thinking about the why.
My weight is up. I'm cranky. I'm not sure what, if anything, i'm compensating for.
And tomorrow, when I get up, I'm not going to eat because I'm awake. I'm going to eat when I'm hungry.
