skinny rules

Have you seen this? It's been going around my Facebook and I'm curious to know what ya'll think. Better yet, I want to know if you actually follow these rules!

I don't do the following: 1, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 20... so, half I do and half I don't. yikes.

I'm really bad at eating vegetables. It's not that I don't like them, I just don't always do it! I have a veggie or two with dinner, but I never have them at lunch. Also, I don't plan a splurge meal. That's not to say I don't ever splurge, though... :) Should planning to splurge really be a rule? I get that it's nice to have something to look forward to, but if I followed that rule then I wouldn't be able to follow rule 13, and if I followed rule 13 then I would be breaking rule 16. See what I did there?

Some of these rules don't seem very practical. Sometimes going to bed hungry is uncomfortable! But I do eat too much at night. Take the other night for example. Andy's out of town, so eating a normal meal is out the window. I'm kind of embarrassed to tell you what I had. Macaroni salad and watermelon. That's it. Haha! My stomach started growling about an hour later (hm, wonder why). I fixed a bowl of cereal. Then, another hour later, I get bored. So I had some cottage cheese. Theeeen I wanted some ice cream, but I didn't have it. I went to bed to avoid eating any more. UGH. My poor body hardly got any nutrition!

No carbs after lunch? Whoo-ee. If you do this, please tell me how. And if you still enjoy your life. I think I'm losing weight just thinking about not consuming carbs after lunch!

At least I can say I follow some of these. My main rule isn't even on here, and that's to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. It works! 

What are your skinny rules?
