Revelation: I now eat when I'm hungry

Saturday, March 19, 2011

I had quite a revelation. I took the "How Positive Is Your Body Image" quiz yesterday. The revelation came at question 8:

Most of the time, I eat when Iím _______.
__ Hungry
__ Bored, depressed, lonely, stressed and/or worried

Any, and every, other time I thought about this question, I would've answered "Bored, depressed, lonely, stressed and/or worried."

Yesterday, for the first time in my life, I answered "Hungry." I now eat when I'm hungry and not for other reasons. My habits and behaviors have changed so drastically that I no longer run to food to cure loneliness, boredom or stress. I've developed friendships with women at work and with other SparkPeople members. You all are the "wind beneath my wings" when I'm blue and lonely.

But the most instrumental change has come from using Dr. Judith Beck's cognitive behavioral-based weight loss program, The Beck Diet Solution. Dr. Beck's program has given me the tools I need to learn to eat like a "normal" healthy person.

    I'm enjoying doing the Beck Diet Solution. Great job on eating when hungry! I find I feel so much better when I do that. Food taste great. I've been focusing myself on eating when hungry. Waiting isn't so bad.

    What a huge switch you have made! That is exhilarating!

I am following hard on your heels! I haven't effected a total cure of the non-hungry eating, but by God's grace I'm getting there. Thanks for sharing your path.

Great blog!
