Eating Triggers

Friday, March 21, 2008

Now that I have started SparkPeople I have been trying to be aware of what triggers me to eat. Today I feel like a bottomless pit. I am constantly hungry. I've been trying to be good by making good food choices. We went to IHOP and I even ordered a salad instead of the Belgium Waffles smothered in berry sauce and whipped topping. Trust me, I really wanted the waffles. When the meal was over I was happy that I chose the salad. When we arrived home I started to pick. I had a rice cake or 2 or 3. Then I hit the popcorn 100 cal. bags. So far not too bad. I even made some diet jello and put it in the refrigerator for later. The problem is that it did not set up quick enough so I ate a Little Debbie Marshmallow Cake. Bad Bad. Then I read the SparkPage for BAMMOM19 and regained my motivation. What an inspiration. If you have not visited her page you need to do so. I am back on track and will be ok for the rest of the evening.

BTW, The eating trigger has been discovered.... It is the lovely time of the month that all women look forward to :)

    BAMOM is an amazing motivator, and TOM is an amazing trigger! I fully understand both! It's good to prepare for TOM triggers (when you can)...invite friends over, or plan to go out..prep crunchy, munchy healthy stuff in advance (carrots, peppers and celery take a long time to eat and are low in sodium too!)'ll figure out what works best for you! Keep at it!
