What thoughts helped me eat right last night?
"Harriet" was trying ever so hard to convince me that I needed to munch on some chocolate while I was watching a movie, although I was not hungry (but maybe a little bored).
As the battle raged on between her and myself about 10-15 minutes went by and I just kept thinking I don't need it Harriet, I've had a good calorie count today and if I really want it tomorrow then I'll have it...and she shut up.
Shrink Yourself is working for me...I'm down 3lbs as of today.

I was so excited after voting yesterday morning that I had a sudden urge to get some candy to celebrate! I even took an extra 10 minutes going out of my way to work to see if a favorite store was open. In the meantime, a thought came into my head of seeing my family on the holidays. My 39-year-old, 5'8" niece weighs easily more than 250 pounds, maybe even closer to 300. No one says anything about it in front of her, but I know on the inside she is suffering. You don't have to be that big to feel miserable about the hold food has on you. I don't want to hit her over the head with my success, but I also want her to see than you can lose weight in stages, as she will see that I have done. So, I quit my search and went to school without candy. And I was fine.

By the way, I haven't ever sent her anything about SP, most because we never talk about weight loss, and I'm not sure it is my place. I have sent info to friends who discuss such issues with me, but I don't want to be presumptuous with her. It's not as if she doesn't know she has a problem.

Today's thought was I want progress and there's a process for the progress to happen. Make good choices!

The thought that I love myself and that I am worth the effort it takes to have the body and weight loss goal that I want.
It doesn't always work but so far for today, it is!

Today about an hour from lunch time I caught site in my classroom of a box of packets of hot chocolate mix. I thought of heating some water and making a cup, thnking at tfirst that I was hungry, and I believe it's okay to eat when hungry. Then I thought of how I had just one more hour until lunch and that if I hadn't seen the packets, I wouldn't have thought of having anything. So I waited until lunch and really enjoyed it.

So, I have figured something out over the past several years. I eat because I'm lonely....So, tonight, instead of binge-ing I decided to let myself feel a little upset about being alone....and I survived AND I stayed within my calorie target range........It sucks to feel bad, but liveable. Just wanted to share this with you all........ :-)

So Far......

I've lost 26 pounds

6 inches off my hips

5 1/4 inches off my waist

1 1/2 inch off my neck

4 1/2 inches off my bust


 Pounds lost: 23.0

I was thinking just a few moments ago about how easy it would be to buy some chocolate and eat it on the way home as a response to having too much to do. Usually, I think that the kind of activities I come up with that are pleasurable that are supposed to replace the comfort of food are too inconvenient to be substitutes for how easy it is to buy something, eat it in the car while I drive and get that creamy sensation and the satisfaction of swallowing. However, today I reminded myself that I went for a long time being content to wait to eat a chewy kind of bread for dessert each night instead of bingeing during the day. I can do the same for planning some nice exercise or other rewarding experience when I get home tonight. And remember that eating now isn't going to make up for my fear of not having enough really happy moments in life, or at least as many as I imagine some people have. Never has, never will. emoticon

I thought it would be good to have a place where team members could tell about how they used their thoughts to change their behavior at a particular moment. See my next post for an example. emoticon
