Not having fun with food

Friday, January 18, 2013

Food at 6 or so until I go to sleep is my main thought in my brain. Not working out, not being good...just food. I keep thinking about what I can eat next; sometimes even sneaking a bad thing in. What the hell is going on? How can my mind be powerful enough to stomp this crap out of my mind. They are like little annoying gremlins that are egging me on to try make me eat. STOP. I want to do this and perhaps lose a few pounds. Damn gremlins.

Best, Dave

PS. Message to self - Oh, and try to work out today and get off your ass.

    Have you tried chewing on a piece of sugar free gum in the evening? I know it is a bad habit but if it helps your health then so be it. Sometimes I just keep about a quarter of a stick in the back of my mouth to fiddle with and keep my chewing gremlins happy!

    If you are a TV watcher in the evening try to do some exercises while you watch. When you turn on the TV lie on the floor and do some leg lifts or whatever easy exercises you can do to keep busy. If you can only do two or three that's ok, it's a beginning.

    Keep a large glass of water where ever you happen to be and sip it when you think of going to the fridge(or Cheerios).If you don't mind room temperature water you can leave a bottle by the computer, by your TV chair, by your bed..where ever you go often.

    Plan an evening snack, work it in to your tracker.The tracker is a huge help!

    You could have two light meals through the day and then add another small meal in the evening. Some people need more than three meals a day...just make sure they are within your nutritional limits.

    These are just ideas, I hope something here helps you. Welcome aboard, you've made the first big step..you joined SparksPeople. We are here to cheer you on!

    Thought are only as powerful as you allow them to be. You have the right and ability to reject any thought that come into your head. When you start getting thoughts of food do an activity that requires concentration. After a few minutes the thoughtsof food will go away.

    such a cute gremlin. Something I have done to help is put myself on a eating schedule and chose with help of the nutrition tracker a daily menu that I could eat regularly and be satisfied that also holds all my nutritional needs. I now eat those items daily so I don't have to put much thought into the food this frees my thinking up and has help me with my crack addict addiction to food- I am an emotional eater.
