I must stop grazing! I find it is easier to eat more food if it is "nibbles" type food. For example; chips, dips, popcorn, jatz with cheese and kabana, nuts etc. I can graze for ages until I feel full. It's small amounts of yummy things that I like the most about nibbles. Although when you're grazing, those small amounts turn into not so small amounts! When it comes to meal time I can only eat a small amount of food (about half a bread and butter plate) and then I feel ridiculously full. When I'm grazing I mentally feel more satisfied but not physically. I really like being social and sitting around with a glass of wine, chatting with friends. Thank goodness I'm back to work on Monday and the snacking will end - at least until the Christmas break!
In other news, I had an appointment with my surgeon who is exceptionally happy with my progress. I've lost 11.9kg since I last saw him 7 odd weeks ago. He reminded me that I should be having 0 calorie liquids frequently during the day. Hmm. Mental note: Start on 0 calorie liquids and not apple juice as of now!
