Hi Slenderella, just read your posts and sorry I haven't kept up with these boards this summer. Hope to better this fall. But I know what you mean about sitting down to eat. I still have not totally mastered that behavior. Am starting back on the Beck in the morning.(couldn't find the book! LOL) I have been very bad about tracking and planning and want to try to get back to it. Have a sparked week. Are you back from your trip?

I messed up last night. Back on track today. I can go weeks without an overeating episode, but my negative eating pattern shows up again just to show me I have to stay vigilant.

Doing well. Trying to decide if I eat too much of low calorie foods and if that is a habit I want to change.

I now have one week with no artificial sweetener packets, when I was using more than 20 a day. This just shows me that I have the discipline to accomplish what I want to.

I was down .8 pounds at Weight Watchers this week.

It is hard to decide if I really want to live the rest of my life planning my meals. I think not. Not totally anyway. Tracking, though, is something I do think I'll need to do in order to maintain. I still hope to get back to where I was a year ago, down about 4 pounds. I'll keep pre-planning my meals at least for those 4 pounds. Then I have to see if it is a maintainable weight. I think it may end up that it is maintainable when I am running, but not if I'm walking.

Probably I do need to sit down to eat. That is a hard one for me, but I'm going to keep trying. I think the reason it is hard for me is that I have had months of maintaining when I tracked carefully but often ate standing up often. So I kind of have a hard time believing I have to do it.

Right now I'm not having many sabotaging thoughts, but I think back to a couple months ago when my weight went up about 5 pounds. What happened? I reduced my exercise and nibbled carbs in the evenings. What was I thinking? What were those sabotaging thoughts? Not sure. Got to be on the lookout for the "it is okay to eat this because -- "

Reality is that sometimes I can have a few bites thinking, "it is okay" and still maintain, but I've got to balance it out. Obviously, I got carried away with that thinking when I allowed myself to gain.

But I'm giving myself credit. I've been a healthy BMI for over 3 years now and below BMI of 22 for over 2 years, after more than 50 years of being overweight. I've made many good changes. I can continue to eat smart and continue to improve my eating habits.

I'm doing better on my sitting down. Did good tracking hunger and skipping lunch and tracking hunger. Tomorrow I start the diet part for real.

I keep messing up the sitting down to eat. I already messed up this morning. I'm trying to decide whether to go on or to stay on this day until I get at least one good sitting day behind me.

Eating sitting down is a hard one for me, especially when I am feeding the grandkids. I find I'm standing up mid-bite to grab a wipe or something. Also, I eat in the car and I don't think that is good. I'm almost my ideal weight, but I'm far from thinking like a thin person. I was overweight more than 5 decades, so it makes sense I've got a ways to go still.

I'm very psyched to have a coach finally. I had suspended my Beck activities until I found one. Think I'll start over now.

I'm still using some of the ideas. Still having a hard time eating while sitting down. Plan on blogging tomorrow again. Hope everyone is doing well.
