My Resolution for 2016 - Do Not Eat Unless Hungry

My old mantra (getting skinny is more fun than getting fat) was getting stale, even though it is still true. I have begun to suspect that I have an eating disorder (binge eating) and that my focus on sugar, while noble and not wrong, may be missing the mark. If I can really not eat unless hungry (with some exceptions, of course), and if I can be reminded of this every time I open my spark page, I think I will see more success than I have over the last two years as I have watched my weight ...
My old mantra (getting skinny is more fun than getting fat) was getting stale, even though it is still true. I have begun to suspect that I have an eating disorder (binge eating) and that my focus on sugar, while noble and not wrong, may be missing the mark. If I can really not eat unless hungry (with some exceptions, of course), and if I can be reminded of this every time I open my spark page, I think I will see more success than I have over the last two years as I have watched my weight creep up a little.

I have been a proud and happy member of SparkPeople for 8 years. It is an extremely important part of my life. I feel like I am the ultimate work in progress. After an initial loss of 40 lbs. in 6 months, I have struggled. My struggles have included gaining back some of the weight and just bouncing around at a certain level. I think things are finally moving in the right direction again.

I have been plagued by the sugar monster. I have made quite a few false starts in my efforts to control my sugar consumption. However, I have read many books and watched many videos about the dangerous effects of sugar, and they are finally beginning to sink in.

Another goal I have for 2016 is to become a better role model for my fellow sparkers. I hope you get some inspiration from my page.

Personal Information:
I have lived in Northern NJ for most of my life. I have two great kids, a 30 year old daughter (attorney and aspiring tri-athlete) and a 27 year old son who is an assistant basketball coach at a junior college. I have also been married to the same guy for 38 years.

Other Information:
For most of my life I was not much of a reader. At some point I started listening to audiobooks and loved them. I especially liked Michael Connelly and Sue Grafton. But recently I haven't done it so much, partly because I currently have a relatively short commute.

I work as a technical writer in the pharmaceutical industry. It is contract work, so I am not sure how long my current job will last.

Mini-challenge for you: "TIDY UP"

Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day .... to straighten up something, whether it be your desk, a cluttered table, junk drawer, or the kitchen counter. Return items to their rightful places, recycle, and put papers you need to go through in a folder for later.

A chaotic or disorganized space makes everyday tasks seem harder because you feel like you're always running behind. Cleaning up even one small physical space can help clear mental space, allowing you to be more efficient the rest of the day.

Unfortunately I have not been very active. With my back the way it has been for the last several days it has been rough going, hurts to move. I am going to try and get outside and walk today, we will see how it goes.

Hope you are having an awesome day today.

Hi Leslie; I also am very proud of you, your weight loss and behaviors. You are doing a fantastic job with this challenge. I will be more than happy to "be stuck with you" as you put it. Keep up the great work.
