Keep Busy


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

The best thing to keep myself from mindless snacking whether healthy food or very unhealthy food is to keep my mind and body busy. I write in a journal, I read a book, I exercise, I play with my kids, paint or draw, working on the house were rebuilding or simply yard work. But unless I'm busy, I eat when I'm not hungry.

    Last night I babysat for my 7 month old grandson and suddenly about 7pm realized I might need to eat. At home I would have been grazing at 5pm!
