Why Do You Overeat? One Over Weight Person's Perspective
I wasn't hungry. Actually, I was feeling kind of full, but I still found myself in the kitchen looking for something more to eat. On a normal night, I usually don't feel like that. Looking to eat more for no physical reason. But tonight wasn't a normal night. It was the night before a holiday. A holiday known for people overeating until they are stuffed to the gills. Weight loss does not even enter the picture. So I stopped and thought about why I was doing what I was doing. And as I stood there in the kitchen, staring into the open refrigerator, I realized that I was looking for more to eat because that is what I thought I should be doing. Eating more. And it was all because of the holiday.
Like I said, it was the night before a holiday. It was a time for celebration. A time to do what I normally would not do. Eat and drink as much as I wanted. It was the "Holiday Excuse" to pig out.
I then had a momentary sense of consciousness and said "Wait, what am I doing searching for more to eat." When I realized it was the "Holiday Excuse" to overeat, I stopped. My desire for more food was overcome by my common sense that said I really wasn't hungry and that this feeling was really just a bad habit that I needed to overcome.
With this new found realization in my head, I was able to stop my food search and go on with my evening - without eating anything else. Looking back on that night, I feel really good about myself and that I was really in control of my mind and body. That this control would now be my new weight loss diet program. A natural weight loss plan.
