Cut up the Card!

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Are you familiar with Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University? He strongly advocates cutting up credit cards as a way to manage debt. Well, this week I cut up a couple of different cards: my "Finish Everything in the Bag Culb" card, and my "Eat Until I Want to Vomit Club" card! YEAH! I haven't lost any weight, but my clothes are roomier and those that are the next size smaller are not impossible to get into as they had been. Also, I am acutely aware of when I am hungry, eating to satisfy it, and recognizing my appetite and affinity for some foods over others. For example, I poured out a glass of wine last night because it was too sweet. Formerly, I would have fininshed it and asked for more, taste be damned! So, while the scale isn't moving, my awareness is heightening. I am confident that this is an important step towards managing my weight. Thanks, SparkPeople for cultivating this insight!
