I feel full lately.
I feel like my skin is being stretched beyond it's normal limits and that there is a balloon inside me constantly filling with air and making me bigger and bigger.
My weight is the same.
My clothes fit the same.
But I swear I am filling up. Bursting at the seams. Bloating.
I do not have a uterus, so I am not aware of my time of the month. But I know my body still cycles. Is it possible I'm cycling? If I don't have a uterus, do you still bloat?
When I'm having these FULL feelings, I want to live off of brothy soups and pure liquids. However, since I'm not sick, my body wants, nay, my body needs sustenance. I have to eat so that I don't get too hungry. Cause boy-howdy if I get too hungry I won't STOP eating! EEK
But it's a struggle, because internally it feels natural to cut back, but the food addict in me wants to completely restrict. It's not only a physical struggle...it's a MENTAL struggle, which is even more exhausting than running a marathon (I've never run a marathon, I can only imagine how terribly exhausting it would be).
So, I'm reporting that for today, I will eat normal meals but think "lightly" when choosing the foods (green veggies over heavy starches, etc). And maybe this weekend I'll make a chicken veggie soup that is stuffed full of chicken and veggies so it can be a complete meal for me.
Do you struggle with feeling "full" then resisting restrictive eating??
