Ok- I have been going at this weight loss ride for many years. Most recently the last few weeks(4) I had been really watching, record anything that crosses my lips and making a real effort to gain control.
I am passed the point of physical cravings....the first week was hardest. I missed heavy carbs and sugar. However, I still have a mental craving for that pleasure part of the food and eating. ( I am not hungry but a cupcake would be yummy! or a handful of chips!)
( does that make sense? )
I have been trying to find joy in things other than food. I select my favorite songs to listen to in the car on my drive to and from work. ( Little joy :-) I make quick calls in the evening to my parents, siblings or friends to say hi and I am thinking of you. ( Little Joy:-)) I spend some quality time with one of my kids or husband even if its just a few minutes, ( Little joy:-)
What are the little joys you add to life to make up for the food moments that your are trying to avoid?? I really want to hear some ideas! Thanks
