Lightbulb moment

by BlueUmbrella on 12-01-2017 at 02:46 PM
I've been struggling lately, after my recent blog posts anyone who's read them will know I've been scratching my head as to where I'm going wrong.
Last night I was looking for recipes, menu ideas, that kind of thing when I came across a thread from a long time ago where the poster talked of being very hungry all the time. "That's just like me" I thought. I have been grazing a lot and the reason I've been grazing is because I never felt full and felt hungry all the darn time. I'd

Tonight I ate some beef stew that I'd made for me and my husband. I mushed mine up as best I could, it's basically carrots, onions, stewing steak, beef broth and potatoes. Now I feel bad because I've eaten white potatoes and I'm worried I'm just going to end up inhaling 5lbs of carbs, stretch my stomach and mess everything up.
Later on I was making breakfast sandwiches for my husband to take to work, I tend to make a big batch of something for his breakfasts and lunches at work. I like cooking
