You would think that an almost 37 year old woman (Dear God) would know if she's full or not. Especially since I have spent most of the past decade in a constant state of fullness - if not overly so. Maybe that's the problem
I have an appointment with Dr. Minkin tomorrow.
Do I need a fill?
Do I need some taken out?
Am I full for 4 hours on 1/2 cup or am I just willing myself not to eat?
Am I chewing enough?
Am I taking small enough bites?
Am I taking long enough to eat?
Obviously, I have questions. I'm hoping he has answers.
I felt a little silly googling "How do I know when I'm full" but I did it. I found this...
Helpful. I think most of the time as of late I've been about a 4 to a 4 1/2 to a 5. More and more, I'm a 4 after eating. I think I should be closer to a 6?
For example, I'm just finishing my lunch of three meatballs with marinara sauce. Probably about 2/3 of a cup of food. I'm a 4ish. I think I should be closer to a 6.
Next question - how do I know if I should eat? I first typed "am I hungry" but I think the question or rather or not I should eat is probably more apt? Does my stomach need to be growling? Loudly? Just feel empty? Time to hit google again.
