Do you ever forget to eat?

Happiness is finding a veggie in my lunchbox that I forgot to eat at lunchtime! That hardly ever happens anymore, overlooking food I mean, but now I get to have grape tomatoes with my cheese and apple slices afternoon snack. Maybe I'm a simple person, but this makes me happy. Usually I'm counting the minutes to my next meal or snack, but I'm not so hungry today. Maybe I'm finally adjusting. Thoughts?

I do a lot pass out sometimes when I don't eat

Food is always so close to top of mind with me that I don't usually get to that point. I do get irritable sometimes when it is taking me longer than usual to get dinner on the table.

Snacks are good. If I'm out walking or running I usually take dried apricots or raisins with me.

I have forgotten to eat many times. Usually I forget to eat breakfast and lunch. Sometimes I get so busy that I just forgets.

With me its kind of like forgetting my car keys … I just don't get very far before I remember!

I have forgotten to eat many times because I was busy and it didn't cross my mind. Most times I have to force myself to eat.

Wow, the only time I've had to force myself to eat is either when I'm sick, or when I really didn't want to eat something in particular, but felt like it was something so good for me I should eat it anyway. Mostly I find myself forcing myself not to eat something.

I thought I was out there by myself with regards to not wanting to eat, but I see I am in good company. I have been getting up anywhere from 5AM to 9AM and I check my sugar as soon as I have washed my hands. Sometimes I eat a blueberry waffle, other times I don't bother with anything. Very occassionally I will have a toasted cheese sanwhich for lunch or I will just wait until supper and I'll eat whatever I'm fixing for my hubby. I would say that on average I eat one good meal a day. My MD has told me I need to eat more but I just cannot force it down,

I can't answer for you but I can't remember forgetting to eat. I have forgotten my car keys and I have forgotten thoughts (in the middle of a sentence) but I have never forgotten to eat. Granted I eat more often than most people (5-6 times a day … smaller meals, sensible snacks) but I have lost weight so I guess, for me, it's working. Now, where did I put those car keys??? And what was I talking about???

One of the cool things I found when I started to eat more healthy, was that I was not so hungry and smaller nutrient filled meals make me full. I can tell it most when I fall back into an old junk food habit or something for a few! I feel so bad and run down and always craving my next yummy. When I am eating healthy, that doesn't much. =0)

Just what I was thinking. Sometimes I won't finish a proportioned meal (usually lunch) because what I've chosen is fulfilling. Pretty cool; seems like you are hitting your stride.
