Ten minutes against cravings...

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I was still hungry after yesterdays dinner. Put the alarm for te minutes and waited. Still hungry. Waited another ten minutes. And another. The I had tea and a sandwhich with ham. I don´t feel good about it but it is history.

    The timer is such a simple and sensical idea! I've never thought of that and I'm a pretty good rule follower -- I like the structure. I'm sorry it didn't work for you that time, but you've given me a new strategy so good has come. Thanks.

    Good strategy to use....you realized you were really hungry and had something good to eat rather junk food!!

    At least you tried to wait out the craving. Perhaps with the next one, you can try ten minutes more.

    Doesn't sound like a major binge - but I do this sort of thing constantly and then give myself a hard time. The routine goes like this:

    *I WAIT
    *I LISTEN
    *I WAIT A BIT MORE - hopefully
    *I EAT - more often than not

    *I spend more time hating my lack of willpower than I spent waiting/listening/eating

    WHY? is what I've always wanted to understand. But if I knew that presumably I wouldn't have a problem and all would be well in my world. Or would it?

    You did the right thing waiting the ten minutes, and you're body was still hungry. I think that is one of the biggest challenges is listening to our bodies and what they need. If you were hungry, truly hungry, then you did the right thing. We can always change what we put into them, but it is always important to listen.
