Challenge #1- picking when you arent hungry

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Hello all-
Ok I am back and seriously trying to get a few pounds off before the holiday and not put any new pounds on. January will be my 1 year anniversary with Spark and I want to be down 5 pounds by then!
I decided to write a blog about once a week, regarding something I find difficult on this weight loss journey.
One of my biggest downfalls is picking when I am really not that half an hour after dinner is done and cleaned up. I find myself at the fridge or pantry ...just looking for a bite of this or a bite of that...(I finally hid the halloween candy far out of sight and reach! )

So what do you do when you have the urge to pick for no reason. ??
I dont think I ever eat because I am really hungry...We are blessed beyond our own understanding with regards to how much food we have ,the quality and quantity of food available to us! I have begun to think that eating just to eat is a sin...?? ( Or am I trying to convince myself, guilt myself, to curb this picking habit?!)
I welcome thougths and ideas!

On a positive note- I really have had no trouble getting back into the habit of drinking the water all day...I think it helps me to feel better over all!

    Can I just tell you how proud of you I am? Because I am. You look fantastic, and you're an inspiration and a reminder to me that I need to get back to being active on here. Well done and good luck!

    Actully I have one item a day I plan in my menu that is a taster for when I get those cravings Ex. a cup of yogurt that I can go to through out the day to graze on . You would be surprised how just one spoonful can beat the feelings down. emoticon

    Your body may be telling you that your meal was not as satisfying as it could have been and a little sweet or salt may have been needed. (Polite response) Get moving girl ....the more we do, the less we eat, the more we lose, the better we feel... (Friends better response ) Wow now that was a mouthful and a plan I better practice more than preach myself...... Tia emoticon

    I tend to want to eat when I am not busy with other activites. I have a rule of no food at the computer so that helps when I'm on sp. Do you have activities you like to do with your hands? I crochet so when I am crocheting I can't be putting food in my mouth!
