I've figured it out - Unconscious eater who lacks control and discipline

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

This week I have been doing some thinking about my habits. I thought to myself why do I fall victim to certain things in my life (mainly sweets, etc.) and it finally hit me. At times, I lack control and discipline! I've also realized that I can be a unconscious eater. I will pick up those cookies and eat them just because they are there. Ok - so keep them out of the house. Well, that's not always easy when I have a hubby who can also bring the items in the home. This is where my lack of control and discipline plays a part. I've also realized when I get off track I do not have the control and discipline to eat my snacks throughout the day and drink my eight glasses of water. I plan to do some soul searching and reading to assess why I'm this way and how to learn control and discipline.

Any advice/ suggestions on learning control, disciplineand unconscious eating is welcomed and would be greatly appreciated!

    I hear you! I'm either way on track or going the opposite direction. I just have to stay with a plan and with PLENTY of healthy option in the house. Load up on fruits, they have to be eaten up before the cookies! emoticon

    I would google "mindful eating." There have been some good articles here on the practice.

    ght are such complex subjects: it's easy to scold yourself for lack of control and discipline, but there are mental, physical and emotional components to these issues. Your obvious thoughtfulness will get you far. Best of luck!
