Out of sight, out of stomach!
Sunday, June 13, 2010
Thank you to everyone for the encouragement. It helps to know that I'm not alone.
I will try to do better. When I do something that I think is bad, it could lead to something good. Doesn't mean I should eat that much next time, or whatever, but the fact that it happened just makes it part of my journey.
I make mistakes. But I certainly should start learning from them and seriously studying them rather than just saying I'll do better next time.
So what did I learn about my habits today:
If something is in front of me, I'll eat it. If it tastes good, I'll eat it ALL.
Problem: I know I should stop, but I don't.
Analysis/Excuse: I don't like wasting food so I convince myself that no one else will eat it or it is better than it being in the trash.
Solution: Just throw it out. If you REALLY don't want to throw it out, do everything in your power to feed it to someone else. Another solution would be to always prepare small amounts of food or put the rest in the fridge BEFORE I start eating. Out of sight, out of stomach. XD
My brain is really logical so logging things in a way that promotes problem solving just might help.
