Glad you decided to become a SPARKER. DON'T QUIT. This being the 451st time, know that you will STAY WITH THIS even if you GAIN, because you WON'T QUIT. At least you will be aware of what you are eating and what you are doing each day!!!! Promise you will not quit.
I'm reading the "BECK DIET SOLUTION" which isn't a "diet" book but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (I got a copy at the library.) It is so worth reading. We have a SparkTeam here for support.

CRAVING RESISTANCE Cravings are usually more emotional and physiologically intense than hunger. The moment I decide I will ABSOLUTELY NOT EAT cravings will diminish.
When I experience a craving my attention gets fixated on food. It is important to remember that the experience of eating goes far beyond the actual time that food is in my mouth - It includes everything that happens afterward: feeling weak, guilty and out of control and gaining weight. In the past when I tried to diet, I gave into cravings, and I felt upset with myself. 2398 days ago
I seems like the mountain is too tall, but I know I will reach the top if I just take one step at a time and not look at how far I have to go but rather look at how far I have come. 2399 days ago
