My triggers for mindless eating

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

And Making Myself Accountable...

I over eat/ eat bad when I'm bored, lonely, want to have a good time, want to "treat" myself, when I'm depressed, wait too long to eat, don't have available healthy food or preplan. I think that about lists the reasons I find myself over eating or eating the wrong things.

I AM TIRED of working so hard just to stay where I am. And I KNOW it is because of my eating. I have even on a number of occassions made the mental note that I was not hungry and that I was only bored. I have still continued on with my bored pleasure eating. I have even preplanned the delights of the evening ahead of time, knowing it was Friday and I had no plans... I have got to do better. So hopefully me posting this blog is a way for me to be more accountable for myself.

    it is hard to change our patterns, especially when it feels like you are just treading water. follow your heart, make cuts/substitutions where you can and you will move fwd. i too feel every sentiment you shared here, you are far from alone!

    Sounds like a page out of my book, but you've done well before now it's about finding the inner you so that you can complete your goals. Dig deep within yourself and find that missing link that will help you reach your goals.

    This is a step, you can do it.
    If I am wanting something, I will prepare myself a hot drink and sip it slowly, then after ask myself do I still want it. Most times, it is no.
    Try it.

    Knowledge is Power girl. Self reflection is always the best way to really understand why you do things. Now that you have this important information, you can set yourself up to win. I am seeing how important preplanning is in this journey I really am starting to like that quote "when you fail to plan, you plan to fail". Instead of being bored, get out and do something, take a walk, read a book, call someone on the phone, fight against the mindless eating. You can do it, it is not going to be easy because it has become a habit but you are more than capable!! emoticon
