another change i wanted to share about going "fun" sugar free is my appetite. i had a problem with feeling full. i seriously never ever felt "full." i could eat and eat and eat. and then eat some more and never have a satisfied feeling. this is probably why i could consume huge amounts of food. this is probably why i was never able to lose weight and instead just packed it on.
my appetite has completely changed. i FINALLY feel full! just tonight, i had a pretty solid dinner and left the table pretty content. i also am understanding better when my body is hungry. i am no longer eating out of boredom, stress, or exhaustion. i am eating because i feel hungry. this is all new to me since giving up sugar. when i did weight watchers, i felt hungry and stayed hungry because i ate my allotted points... i am no longer counting calories or points, i am listening to my body and the hunger cues... something i have never done before!
