I've been rockin' the green zone since my last band adjustment in early November.
But wait, before I tell you about my hunger signals, let me make it perfectly clear that before the band (AKA when I was a fatty) I was very rarely ever hungry either. I never let myself get to the point of being hungry. There was always some fun or yummy food that I could eat. I probably ate every hour or two. A constant eating kinda thing.
I guess I never really knew what true hunger felt like.
And those rare moments that I was truly tummy growling hungry, it became an "emergency" in my mind and would need to eat whatever I could get my hands on immediately.
I guess that's another lesson that I've learned in this journey, being hungry is not an emergency.
It's OK to be hungry. Who knew. Not me, that's for sure.
The earth will not fall off of it's access if I am hungry for a short time while I think of and plan my healthy meal.
Anywhoozle, onwards to my new hunger signals:
- I get dizzy. Duh. I know. But seriously, a relatively new phenomenon to this prior fatty.
- Here's the funny one: I become a "Chatty Cathy" with no verbal filter. Yikes! Usually I'm more of a listener in conversations, but if I need to eat and don't realize it, I'll chat your ear off and get pretty snarky pretty fast. My friends are starting to realize this too and ask me if I need to eat. I guess that they'd rather feed me than listen to me.
