I got a new attitude! For the Battle.

That is what I need . A way of looking at what is going on in my life where appetite is concerned. No since in going into details of what or why things have been this way, for now anyway. I am looking at things in a different way now. This is a battle.
This new attitude is not just that . It is a goal. This goal is a healthy choice I believe is just as important if not more important than choosing the right foods.
Attitude - goal = not beating myself up or putting myself down, or ...

Attitude - goal = not beating myself up or putting myself down, or letting others discourage me. It is a daily goal I am accomplishing every day.

Stop skipping meals
Eat only when hungry
Cut back on late night snacking
Plan for snacks
Have a purposeful eating environment
Eat in the same place every day (preferably not in front of the TV)

Record and track your reason for eating every time you eat

This may be a question that nobody has asked you before: "why are you eating?" Forget what you’re eating for a second and focus on what caused you to make that mac ‘n cheese, head for the drive-thru, or dive headfirst into a bag of chips. Was it hunger? Boredom? To calm your nerves? The answers may surprise you. In a recent poll conducted by SparkPeople, 35% of members said they most often eat when bored, while only 13% eat most often when hungry. It’s clear that more and more people are not only eating the wrong foods, but are also eating for the wrong reasons.

When we eat for reasons other than hunger, we’re more likely to eat unhealthy foods. Do you think people eat more ice cream when hungry, or when they’re upset and seeking comfort? The true purpose of eating is to replenish your body with vitamins, minerals, carbs, calories and more. Hunger is your body’s way of saying "replenish me," which should be the only trigger to start eating. This week, write down your reasons for eating (including hunger), every time you eat. This info will help you spot trouble areas and dangerous times of day in your quest to lose weight

Plan your meals for the whole week (or every day) using
the meal planner

PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE! Before the fact
Whenever you notice a persistent problem in any aspect of your weight loss program—whether it’s related to food choices, exercise, or motivation—try to define the problem in writing. What specifically are you doing (or not doing) that you need to change? Why do you think this keeps happening? What are the major triggers or causes of this problem? Do this writing without thinking or worrying about being “correct” at first. Just write down whatever comes to you when you are thinking about the problem, and don’t worry about finding solutions at this point.

Then, go over what you have written with a fine-toothed comb, looking at the language you used. Do those words make it sound like you’re in charge, or as if something else is in charge of you? Go back through the words you wrote, changing any passive verbs to active verbs ("My lunches are packed by my husband" becomes "I let my husband pack my lunches") and replacing any external forces with "I" statements (“It was too cold to walk outside today” becomes “I decided I didn’t want to walk in the cold today”). Once you have done this, go through your problem statement again and see what solutions come to mind.After the fact
Go through this same basic process whenever you have done something you wish you hadn’t done. Describe what happened and why you think it happened, and then put your words under the microscope, as above, changing your words to "I" statements to form solutions.

Try to do this every day, or whenever you are having a problem. It won’t take long for you to automatically think in "I" statements, and your odds of avoiding problems and finding good solutions will increase dramaticall
