I feel bigger this time even if I'm not. I haven't gained as much weight this time so far, which is fine, but I *feel* big because I know I have so long to go until the baby is born. I also feel very bloated if I eat too much at a meal--I'm trying to use this to help change my eating habits. Instead of eating just because that's my portion, think before I eat, "Is this going to make my belly really uncomfortable in an hour?" And "Can I save some of this for later, if I decide I'm hungry then?" Yesterday we had Burger King. I ate a few fries, drank a little of my soda. Then I poured out the soda and put the fries in the fridge while I ate my sandwich. I never got around to eating the fries later.
Of course, I know that sandwich alone probably had 1000 calories and 100 grams of fat in it, or something. But normally, I would definitely have eaten the whole value meal.
