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.

Hey Leslie; Hope you are well. Have an awesome week.

I too have a sugar beast to get rid of. Lets work hard to get this sugar beast off our backs. I usually cave in at least once a week if I do not have it in the house and I get myself into trouble that way. If I have it in the house I think that I do better with just eating little bits every day.

Mini-Challenge for you: "Get healthier with the See-Food Diet" emoticon emoticon

Place ready-to-eat freggies on the center shelf of your fridge (or on your countertop)—where they are at eye level & easy to grab when hunger strikes. You’re 3X more likely to eat the first food you see.

You may consume less fast food & fewer sugary drinks when eating meals at the same time most days. Staying on a schedule prompts you to plan ahead, keeping you from getting too hungry & grabbing whatever’s available all day long.
