Daily Water Intake

At the 99 cent store over in the next city from where I live, they sell these containers for water. They advertise this container should be enough for our daily intake of water (8 cups? glasses?). It makes things easier for me. I drink all of it, and I'm assuming I'm getting my needed water. Purchase is only 99 cents :)

Reading: understanding your issues

Understanding the reason for my overeating is very important to me. Reading books on this subject also helps me feel that I'm not alone in what I am going through. I've read articles and things on overeating, read books on emotional eating, etc. Books at the library are free. Read On!

Feeling Full Faster

I did this whenever I was eating one of my required 3 meals for the day. Gulp down as much water as possible in between bites. The key was to drink as much water I could before the next bite. This made me full really fast, even before everything was finished on my plate.

Take Public Transportation

I took the bus for the first tim in my life about a month ago. I noticed that most of the people who took public transportation seemed in good shape. For me, the best form of exercise is when you do it without knowing it. There's lots of walking (or running) involved in taking public transpo!

Use a self portrait

Occasionally I will look at a photo of myself at my highest weight. It's a reality check as to why I wanted to lose weight in the first place. Especially when I'm feeling frustrated, I'll find a photo of me as a 'big' girl. Now I keep a set of these pictures in one location for easy access.

Choose a positive thought

I actually saw this quote at a retail store awhile back. Since then, I've been working on the positive thoughts. It's a work in progress :)

Have a 'treat' day

I allow myself one 'treat' day where I give in to satisfy my cravings and eat whatever I feel. After this day I am back on track for the rest of the week. This is to relieve the deprivation that usually comes with dieting.

I look at my Flab

Before I head down for breakfast, I will look myself just in my undies in front of the mirror. The flab on my tummy is a reminder that I shouldn't overeat. I also have photos of myself and my large tummy that I occasionally look through while eating my meals.
