Okay I decide to start a special thread dedicated to challenges and advice because lately everyone has been posting so much great advice or stating challanges they have set for thierselves. I am copy and pasting the ones that I have found to be good/helpful, so they are all together on one page to veiw.
DENAMARIE1~Since emotional eaters react (eating when stressed, sad, depressed etc.) try using the 10-10-10 rule. Stop and think about that cookie you are about to eat. What will that cookie mean to you in 10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 days. You can insert any time increment you want (minutes, days, months etc.) The point is, after that cookie is gone how are you going to feel about it in 10 minutes. Regret it? Then don't eat it. I found that this rule really helps me out. I picture myself in 10 minutes and think about it - do I really want or need that cookie? I think about myself in 10 days and think about that cookie (now what does it represent?)
MARTIDL~WEEKEND WARRIORS This past weekend I planned in advance what I was going to eat, wrote down my choices, and when something came up to change my food options I made sure I substituted something that was just as healthy.
MZCOFFEY~ Quitting coke(anyone addicted to coke or soda its a good idea to quit, good job!)
I can't remeber which post it was but there was a lot of talk ( LAURALEEE) about the reasons not to eat after 7:30 pm. That was one thing that has helped me alot to know that if I don't eat after 7:30 my body will start using the fat stores, hey I won't eat after 7:30 evr again no matter how much I want to!
I know everyone has challanges and Ideas to add to this thread so I won't fill it up
I just want to remind everyone of something I had said before Please support an encourage yourselves as you would one of us, we are all so supportive to each other it we be nice if we could be this kind to ourselves
Huggs to you all!~Rachael
