Went out with Leigh and Maryanne for our walk. Was meant to see a couple of the other WLS girls there, but they sent apologies. Tomorrow night we are going to do it again - but not till 7pm.
Anyway, onto today's NAWLS Small Bite
Identify safe, satisfying foods.Probably one of the hardest things to get over is not being able to eat everything you want. Yet, WLS is not a prison sentence. It is a choice you made to reclaim your life - an opportunity to enjoy life.
Eat foods that are good for you and that you really love. Feed your hunger with flavour rather than volume. Concentrate on eating slowly, savouring your food instead of gulping it. Identify some satisfying, safe foods you can turn to when you are struggling.
Action for the day:In your journal make a list of "safe" foods you can eat that are super satisfying.

You know I think that is some of my issues surrounding food is that I have not got a safe food list that ticks all the boxes....that is protein heavy, low in fat, low in sugar, gluten free and that I am satisfied by. I mean really satisfied. Actually if I think about it, no food actually does that for me....I will eat and eat I think trying to fill some sort of desire to be satisfied.
SO, do you have a safe list of foods that are super satisfying.....I would love to hear about it. Just add a comment below, can be completely anonymous.
