My tummy decided today it was going to act up. No puking, no nausea–thank goodness. Just tightness and sound.
How so? Well, this morning, my restriction kicked in well before I was done eating my breakfast, which consisted of 3 turkey sausage links and a scrambled egg with cheese. Most mornings I am able to eat the entire plate (which is a small one anyway) and be satisfied. This morning though, I ate the sausage (pretty delicious), started in on the egg and ate a little over a third of it and could not eat any more. I was done. It felt odd, because as I said, I’m usually capable of eating the egg in its entirety as well.
I won’t complain…I need my restriction to work for me, especially in this first year when weight loss is most rapid. I just thought it was weird that every other morning I have no trouble eating what I’ve fixed myself and this morning, I could not. It made me wonder, does my restriction sort of turn itself off and on whenever it feels like it?
