Always sit down when you eat. Make it a habit. Treat yourself like you would a guest in your house. You would never ask a guest to eat out of a box of food standing in front of the pantry or from a container in the frig. Nor would you ask your guest to eat spoonfuls of food cooking on the cooktop or food being prepared on the counter? Eating should be purposeful. Get a plate, measure your food, track the amounts on SparkPeople, take the plate to the table and enjoy your food.
I made a list of the reasons why I want to lose weight and put them on 3x5 notecards. I read them every morning, at mealtimes, when I feel the urge to eat something destructful or when I need a pick me up. I keep the cards on my kitchen counter so they are always there. Here are the 1st few reasons listed on my cards: Feel better about myself, look/feel better in clothes, set good example for my kids, be healthy, avoid diabetes/heart disease, be proud of me, more energy, play soccer again.
