Following a meeting with my therapist, we launched a plan to eat slowly and mindfully this week. The changes have been amazing. First, I gave myself permission to eat whatever I wanted and all day long. AND I have been eating everso small pieces of highly nutritious food through out the day.

The benefit for me: -- I no longer feel "deprived"--I tell myself that I am eating all day long.
--I enjoy the sensuous pleasure of eating, tasting, feeling the food in my mouth, playing with food....

The result: --a whole new attitude toward food
--eating much less
--savoring what I eat
--actually losing weight this week!

I have been practicing eating breakfast mindfully for some time now. Just need to move to snacks, lunch and dinner always, not occasionally.

Yes. I always have time to sit down to slowly and mindfully eat my breakfast. The other meals I sometime have to eat in a hurry or on the go. I have planned healthy snacks and meals for those times.

yes- so far. Though I am quite hungry when following my meal plan.

It may be time to change plans. I see my doctor tomorrow and will discuss.

I want to do other things right now- I want to start working (I have the day off today) but instead I ate mindfully. It's amazing the pull of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to take me away from focusing on what and how I'm eating.

I really like this forum and reading what everyone posted.

My first goal is to loose 10% of my starting weight. Baby steps.
