Eating too much

I ate ravioli for lunch and I'm hating myself for it. Soooo completely stuffed and burping it up.  I have been getting full faster, and usually stop.  But I had like 3 more little squares left so I just ate them.

 

Anyone else stuff themselves into oblivion since being knocked up? :X  I don't recommend it. Just stop.

Re: Eating too much

    I say enjoy it while it lasts.

  • Yea, not a good idea to keep going when you feel full. I get full so fast, and I get disappointed I can't finish when normally I could! But then 3 hours later I'm back at it! Lol! I noticed I can eat more and not feel so full if I take my time. And I mean really take your time!! Count the chews if you have too.
  • A lot of FTM's will go crazy during pregnancy, gain a whole bunch of weight, and then they realize its not all baby weight, and non-baby weight is reeeeealy hard to get rid of. (take it from a chunky girl)

     

    Its really a mental thing- my parents raised me to finish my plate, no matter what. Even after being out of their house for 10 years, I still have a hard time not finishing *everything* on my plate and have the body to show for it. Luckily my food disgust in pregnancy, I end up eating just enough to make me feel better and then can stop.

  • I was dieting before I got pregnant and REALLY watching what I ate.  A lot of fish and lean proteins, tons of veggies, fruits and salads and only complex carbs.  I could care less for things like pasta, rice or potatoes before conceiving.  So now, I'm not counting points anymore or trying to lose weight since it's just plain not safe to do so and I was ALMOST at my goal weight (only 2.5lbs away).

    I've been eating more but get full fast, and man do I like potatoes!!!!! and Rice!!!! Yuuuumy brown rice :)

    I don't know if I've gained weight bc I stopped weighing myself.

    Basically, I am just listening to my body.  I'm eating slower so that I don't over eat bc I get full and then super uncomfortable.  Slowing down the pace of eating has helped so that I enjoy food more and don't over eat!

    But I had like 3 more little squares left so I just ate them.

    As insane as it may seem, if I'm full, I try to put even a leftover few bites into a baggie or container for later*; not only does it help me stop before I'm stuffed (or at least too stuffed!), but when I get snacky later, those few bites can really do the trick. 

    *At work this usually means leaving the three bites in the container my lunch came in in the fridge; I'm sure my coworkers wonder about it, but since it's usually after the lunch rush, the fridge has emptied out so it's not a problem to take up the space!

  • Thanks ladies! I haven't been able to eat much lately and was probably so excited that it wasn't making me sick ... yet lol

    Mistake will not be made again, trust me on that!

    As for the leftovers, I usually just throw it away... I know I should save it :X I figure its just as much wasted if I eat it right then (if I don't need it) as it is in the trash.

  • I'm not used to getting full so quickly yet, so I keep eating a little too much and then I feel stuffed and miserable for the next few hours. Sad

  • I totally was in your shoes also.  I was so full last week after dinner time that I had to learn when to stop. I definitely can not eat as much now.

    I was so miserable...let hope I never do that to myself again.

  • I've been doing quite the same thing. I'm getting really full on much less than what I'd normally eat. Last night I had maybe a third of a plate of pasta and a piece of garlic bread and I felt like I was about to explode. 

    And the nausea is soooo much worse when you're full to bursting. Ugh. But then of course I'm ravenous by 9PM. It's so frustrating.

    Funny you said the word "ravenous" my best friend said that last week and I started teasing her - just a word you don't hear all that much it makes me laugh :))))

  • This is my second preg.....going into this preg 10 lbs lighter than the last. I gained 40 lbs with my first and after the weight just fell off. Needless to say, I am hossing it up. Already up 3lbs at 8 weeks. Probably not the best thing to do but what the heck...this is probably my last preg...I want to enjoy it a little.
