DAY 81 UNHOOK THE CHAINS--- 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE


Monday, March 18, 2013

YOUR WASHING MACHINE STOPS, YOUR KIDS SICK, BOSS IS ON YOUR CASE, YOU JOB MAY BE TRANSFERRED OVER SEAS. BROWNIES ARE JUST A COUPLE OF INCHES AWAY.,...YOU EAT SOME OF THEM IN TURN YOU OVER EAT. YOU ALSO EAT ICE CREAM ON TOP OF THAT. THIS ACTION SEEMS LIKE RANDOM ACTS BUT YOU WERE ALREADY WORE DOWN AND SO WAS YOUR FOOD RESISTANCE.

IN A BEHAVIOR CHAIN ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER, INCREASING YOUR FRUSTRATION UNTIL YOU GIVE UP.

STRUGGLES WITH EMOTIONAL EATING RARELY HAPPENS IN ISOLATION.

ON DAYS WHEN YOU ARE OPERATING ON A THREAD ITS EASY TO REACH FOR THE PIZZA.

ASK, "AND WHAT ELSE"? TO EXAMINE THE LINES IN A BEHAVIOR CHAIN IDENTIFY THE EXACT TIME YOU FIRST ATE OR KNEW WHEN YOU WANTED TO EAT.
THINK BACK AND ASK YOURSELF WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT BOTHERED YOU? OR MADE YOU UPSET?

THINK ABOUT THE SITUATION OR PEOPLE THAT MAY HAVE PROMPTED YOUR STRESSFUL FEELINGS, OR OTHER EMOTIONS.

AS YOU IDENTIFY KEEP ASKING WHAT ELSE? TO FIGURE OUT THINGS.

STUDY THE LINKS---AFTER YOU IDENTIFY ALL THE LINKS IN CHAINS OF EVENTS..LOOK CAREFULLY AT EACH ONE. DETERMINE WHICH PLACES YOU SLIPPED UP AND CONSIDER WHAT YOU COULD DO TO PREVENT THEM.

RATHER THEN FOCUSING HOW MUCH YOU ATE, THINK ABOUT OTHER WAYS YOU COULD HAVE HANDLED THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR DAY. BY STOPPING AT THE 3RD EVENT INSTEAD OF WAITING UNTIL THE 10TH ONE. YOU MAY PREVENT YOURSELF FROM HEADING TO THE CUPBOARD FOR THOSE CHIPS.
