Nah! I know you're not a nutter. That's why I'm sharing this stuff with you. I have been guilty of eating more at the end of the day, because I was calorie-short. Then panicking when i eat more than I should and "give up" for the day.

Thanks!

If at first you don't succeed…yeah, yeah, I know!!

One thing that Sparkpeople are right about is the baby steps. I started originally adding one golden rule a week. I did find the CD enormous help for motivation. Don't track!!! A thin person eats and burns different amounts of calories one day to the next, If you track and find you have not eaten enough calories in a day, you will worry about it and eat more to get it to the 'right level'. Thats what I did, and put on 14lbs in 6 months, which is why I've gone back to Paul McKenna. This programme is not a 'quick fix'. You might even put on weight in the short term! But over time, as your stomach shrinks and your body starts to trust itself, it will come off, and as with anything, it will work as long as you keep doing it. I got complacent, and started eating in front of the TV again, and the weight crept back, then I panicked, started tracking and it GALLOPED back on! emoticon It's nice to have someone to share with that doesn't think I'm some kind of nutter!

Ok, STONECOT (I don't know who else is here on this team emoticon ), I am doing the Paul McKenna thing. I'm eating what I want, when I want IF I am hungry and stopping when I feel my solar plexus is satisfied (love that clue). So far, so good. I don't know if I will lose weight like this. But, I am really not eating much. That may change though IF I feel hungrier on another day. It is a little challenging, but a LOT easier than tracking food, counting calories and following a meal plan. We are travelling, and I wanted a very rich appetizer and could hardly eat any...left a lot on my plate (the waitress was going to bring me a dinner portion...thank heavens I told her out of that. emoticon ...bloat city.

But, I am not focused on food (at least not at this time) and I am walking a lot and kind of rearing to go...except for the sleepless night last night...kid too excited to sleep.

I am tempted to track calories or food intake, whether on the laptop, notebook or mentally. Bad habit that is hard to break.

I have not started listening to the cd yet. I have listened to it one time. And I have not started some of the other techniques.

Thanks! No question, just sharing. emoticon Oh, and by the way, it takes me forever to eat.

If at first you don't succeed…yeah, yeah, I know!!
