When I start thinking about food or obsessing about meals, etc. - I tell myself "there's that thought again!" It reminds me that I am just in a habit of thinking about food and eating is a reaction not a necessity. Get busy living life - call a friend or write a note to someone!
I made a promise to myself to de-clutter. I first began with my computer cabinet and discovered that I went hours without thinking of food! Everyday I look for something that I can get myself lost in while organizing, because when my hands are busy my head isn't thinking of food!
Pick one thing everyday to work on. Keep a big glass of ice water near by to drink often. Change shelf paper in all your cabinets. Organize your dressers and closets. Catalog your photos. When you clear the clutter and get organized everything around you feels so good.
All I used to ever think about was food. I probably drooled! Now I eat 6 smaller meals and monitor portion size. Now I rarely think about food. I actually feel hunger if I forget to eat. I think my blood sugar must have been on a yo-yo. Now it is on a balanced scale!9
