This essay is written by me, Brandon Nolet, in the context that I’m trying to maintain/lose weight, despite my gluttonous tendencies.
As some of you may know, I do partake in the scoobing of the dooby, which leads to lethargy and an overactive feeling of hunger. Unfortunately, this type of effects are not conducive to losing weight, so I feel like I’m fighting a losing battle.
That being said, I have been doing better as of late. When I do fly united these days, I try to have already eaten my supper and/or evening snack but I do sometimes slip a slice of toast.
Outside of getting poi, I find myself not being as hungry as I used to be either. I think it might be because I’m not stretching my stomach by pigging out when flying a mile high. It might also be due to the mental reinforcement of trying to lose weight.
I don’t think I’ll be trying any specific diets or going for “super foods.” At this point I think I’ll start with trying to eat less fast food (includes buying food less). I’ll also be taking care of portion size, trying to eat less with each meal instead of always just skipping a meal when it’s convenient.
For a while I feel like a lot of my self-perceived failures are related to an issue I have with being gluttonous. At some point I theorized that my affinity for chilling with nugs was about satisfying my gluttony and it was at that point that I stopped using it as a way to do that.
I don’t know if that’ll bite me in the ass, but only time will tell.
I hope that this endeavor is successful. I might write a post on why I want this in the future.
