Welp, I'm an "Emotional Eater"

Monday, March 25, 2013

So I've been doing ok on SP but not blogging or being a part of the social aspect (which I know is key). This is the first step in my attempt to be better!

I just took the Diet Personality Quiz and was found to be an "Emotional Eater". This I knew. I eat not only when I'm hungry but when I'm tired, bored, sad, watching tv.... and so on. They recommended choosing one goal at a time and sticking with it for up to 8 weeks. This is new info for me. I usually choose many goals and try to go for 2 weeks straight before calling it a success and moving on. Obviously, as my current weight/size/body image is not great, this is not working. The example goal they had was drinking 8 glasses of water a day. This was actually something I got super good at on my first round on SP and have stuck with since. It's the rare day now that I don't drink at least 8 cups of water.

So this leaves me stuck. I'm not sure what my first goal should be. I don't really eat "bad" food that often, so I can't just stop eating chips and look for weight loss. Anyone have any suggestions?

    It's the chips that get me, too. I'm up 1.5 pounds and am hoping that all of the salt is the culprit. Maybe you could make it a goal to read and comment on the blogs and/or contribute by blogging regularly.

    Goal could be to be sure to eat maybe one healthy meal a day.
