remembering just as you put a bite in your mouth isn't so bad-- then you sit down and continue eating more mindfully!

I was in a hurry the other day and ate some standing up before we had to leave to go to an appointment, and it really bothered me. I just hear my "BECK VOICE" as I call her saying "SIT DOWN." emoticon

It took me a couple of months. But, I have all my "BECK" written out in a notebook and I read through it each morning, or at least a part of it. I have my cards and I go over them like when I am waiting in line at the bank or waiting in the car for my husband to get tires at the tire store. (He went in yesterday to look for some for our DD's car, so she can go get them put on on Tuesday.)

Hi again Jibbie. You really seem to have the hang of the Beck program. I can't believe that sitting to eat is a HABIT for you! I would just love to be able to say that. Eating very fast while standing up is my habit. If I could correct either of those I'd be really pleased. I'm going to work on this. Hmmm...maybe I should start at Thanksgiving dinner :)

When I pay attention I realize I really need to get better at this. I guess I need to really commit to this.

Sometimes when I am cooking and I need to taste - I'll take that spoonful/lick/taste over to the kitchen table and sit briefly while I taste it. It's so easy for me to do a lot of mindless tasting while cooking or preparing food. This action really makes me aware of how many times I WANT to stick food in my mouth.

I have not checked here in a while, so I am coming in late to this discussion. But I love what people are writing.

For me, I find that just realizing that I am not supposed to do it makes me aware, right at the last second, like you are saying. When I am being very careful and strict, I will not put it in my mouth. I have even spit out food if I realize it too late!

Most of the time though, I am not as careful (after two and a half years). I think that the habit makes your eating better in general, and it is very important to be strict at the beginning. And I have recently recommitted to Beck, and in the last few weeks, I have almost caught myself eating while cooking. Usually I decide NOT to put it in my mouth. But - TRUE CONFESSIONS - I am right now making an apple dish with cut up apples and raisins and cinnamon, which I then microwave. It is delicious. Anyway, I just took a bite of one of the apple cores. It could be a lot worse. But still, I like the fact that I am AWARE that I did this and that it is not the best approach to eating!

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

I have a note card that has "sit down" written with Sharpie on my refrigerator. There's also one on the small counter when I used to do most of my eating. Then every time I do sit down I make sure to tell myself good job for sitting down. It's the the point now where I don't even think about it. There were a few times that I would put food in my mouth while standing and literally stop chewing, and go sit down. Those times always cracked me up. :o)

I decided to put everything I eat on a plate. It only takes a few seconds to do.
I deserve food to be plated. Sometimes I even make it look pretty too. Plating helps with portion control too.
The visual distracts me from wolfing down food. It slows me down so I can enjoy it mindfully.

When I am cooking or cleaning up, etc and I don't eat standing - well, I do a twirl. Once around and it feels so good and I want more twirls. It makes me really think about not eating standing and eating.

(I only do this when I am alone...LOL)

I am working on this too. I have tried to make a visual, not really a sign just a reminder. I guess the cards will help with that too.

I've made it such a HABIT now, that I can't eat at the kitchen counter or stove like I use to do. I just kept reading the BECK Cards and I KNOW I have to sit down to take a bite.

That's about the time I seem to remember too unless I am really , really mindful of what I am doing emoticon

I think just being aware is a move toward making it into a habit. I would like to get to the point where it is just as mindless to sit and eat as it has been to stand and eat

I've been remembering JUST when I've been about to put food in my mouth when I'm on my feet.

I'm really surprised at how often I usually eat standing up, or how used to it I am!

A sign on the fridge doesn't really help nor does a sign to myself at the table.
