All about portions

04 Mar

One thing that I’ve always struggled to get a clear concept of while in my binge eating mode was portions.  When I got stuck in the binge-mode, I often lost control over what I was all eating.  I simply inhaled the food, more than I did actually chew it thoroughly and let the food actually settle in my stomach.  I would grab a bag of ‘this’ or a box of ‘that’ and continue to eat copious amounts of food, with no regard to how much or how many servings I really ate.

The fact that I zoned out was a curse and a blessing.  It was a curse when I was in the moment because I lost total control over what I was really eating; it was a blessing so that I couldn’t distinctly remember after the fact, especially the next morning, how much I really took in.  The nutrition facts label or serving suggestion meant absolutely nothing to me.  It was as if those numbers didn’t exist.

Day four of my 50 day challenge: A picture of one snack you had today that you felt was a good portion size.

This was a portion/serving size of hot brown rice cereal, with blueberries and sprinkled with crushed up almonds and peanuts.  I felt this was a proper serving/portion size for me.  It was satisfying and I felt like I didn’t overdo it.

Admittedly, last night I ate a bit more than I needed to.  I will be extremely honest on here.  If I struggle, I will admit it.  If I binge, I will admit it.  If I do great, I will share that too.  This is all about being open and honest.  Last night, I wouldn’t say that I binged, but I definitely ate more than my hunger called for.  I did lose sit a bit of the portions and amounts that I was eating, but I feel like in the grand scheme of things, I stopped myself before I lost too much control.  So, I will definitely want to watch this more closely and keep it in check so as not to let it escalate.
