I live in a beautiful town in southern California.
HI...this is one of your check ups...how are you doing this week...I added a couple of clips to the Sweet Bean card for you before I left town. I jogged last night and went to the gym this morning...felt good-wish that the mirror in the gym would reflect everything except my torso...we stretched for a long time- that was amazing...and painful- a good painful wake up call!
Let's make this thing work for both of us- when I got to the gym this morning- that book about the eating clena was on the counter- somebody gave it to Sue to read. Guess I will read it after I read the Ultrametabolism book- Thanks for the nice visit and all of the goodies that you sent me home with- there is honey in my miel pot... =0)

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. ---------------------------------------- - I know I don't care at this moment, but pretty soon I'm going to feel really bad that I ate this. When I get on the scale, I'm going to care very much. If I don't learn to resist eating food I'm not suppose to have, I'll never be able to keep off the weight I lose. --------------------- I have to become an expert at resisting all food that I haven't planned to eat. If I want to lose weight and keep it off, I just can't eat what I want unless it is on my plan. ----------------- I am choosing to say NO CHOICE. If I want to lose weight, I have to do what I need to do, not what I feel like doing. --------------------- Successful dieters and maintainers stay successful because they don't eat whatever they want, whenever they want it. They stick to their plans. --------------- It is true that I don't care at this moment. But if I eat this unplanned food, I'm going to care quite a lot in a few minutes. I know I'll feel really bad if I give in now, but I'll feel really terrific in a few minutes if I resist. I need to do something else!
