hooo boy.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

making an effort to actually start thinking about my hunger levels instead of eating at a certain time or if there's food in the immediate vicinity.

this will be a good training exercise for me. but it's also one of the hardest things for me to keep in mind. i love food. if you put it in front of me, i'm probably going to eat it (unless it's chocolate or something i can't stand). when it comes to talking myself out of (more) food, i fail much more often than i succeed.

so i know i'm going to have a fight on my hands. we'll see how long I can keep this up. if anyone's successfully transitioned into "listening to your body" feel free to offer some advice. especially if you had a hard time doing so--i want to know about your triumphs, and also about times you fell flat on your face; those stories are just as important.

    I am a creature of habit and I'm guilty of eating because it's "that time". I wish you a great success on overcoming this habit. I agree with Ms. Sweetheart that the mini meals work for me as well. But be sure those meals and snacks are healthy ones.

    Be patient with yourself. You can't go from years of eating whatever you want, whenever you want, to listening to your body overnight. This was also a problem for me, but I found that eating small meals every 2-3 hours has helped me a lot. By eating small frequent meals, I don't get too hungry, and I'm able to make better decisions. Before, I would wait until I got hungry, then eat too much. So again my advice would be to be patient with yourself. Planning your meals and snacks ahead of time for the next day, will also help. Good luck! emoticon
