I know this may sound silly
, but I have done this many times in my 4 year journey, at a starting weight of 380 pounds. I found it to be useful for emotional eating and thinking that I could just "over eat this one time, on this one food" binge thought and desire. I call it "Walking the Table".
When I get nervous, upset, crying or feel that "forever craving" of just anything that I especially love to eat start to enter my mind, I do this. I start walking around my kitchen/dinning room table and just keep going. I let my mindset be that I'm "walking away" from the food and the further I "get away", the easier it is to "stay away" from my heart's desire. I will say that it isn't a permanent solution, but most of the time it works and the confidence I feel that "I walked away from it" definitely out-weighs the guilt that I would feel if I had stayed by it and ate it. I don't count any my steps as exercising as I'm only doing this to "get away from the food" which is first and foremost at the time.
I just wanted to share this thought with you about different "things" that I've had to come up with while on my journey. I'm still on my journey to the new me and I'm really sure my brain will come up with others. I guess it as like my mother used to say to me and my 3 sisters......."Everyone does their own thing."
My wish for all of you fellow sparkers is that you will have as many successes as you can stand in just one day!
Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!
