Can't stop snacking!

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Been eating myself out of house and home the last few days! Not huge binges, but lots of little binges that I just keep going back to. I just cannot seem to stop.

I need a motivation boost people!

I know what I need to do, I just don't feel like it. It would be so helpful if I had someone living nearby that I could walk with. I feel like if I only rely on myself, the excuses will always win.

I am still learning. Right now, the Will, is still just so weak. The motivation is in the heart, but not always powerful enough to overcome the Laziness that I have succumbed to for so many years.

I will keep trying. May the will and motivation supersede the snacking and get my feet moving again!

    Oh I know how you feel! I love to snack, this is a hard part of my day for me to stop snacking. To do so I now keep super healthy snacks around..or I eat something sugar free to help me feel like I am getting the sugar I know I am not getting. Watermelon these days keep me happy lol.

    When you feel like snacking, come to spark, revisit your goals, remember why you are doing this. Go for a walk, smell the flowers anything to get your mind off of mindless snacking. Or eat a super veggie that will keep you full. This helps me and I hope it will help you too!

    Take care of you,

    If I start to snack a lot, I know I probably have not eaten everything I should have for a certain meal. If I have done that but still want to munch, I make some air popped popcorn in a paper sack in the microwave, and spray I can't believe it's not butter on it. If I have to have something sweet, I take a low cal yogurt, and put a spoon of whip creme on the top. I also drink a nice cup of hot mint tea, or drink another ice cold bottle of water.

    I know what you mean about walking. I'm lucky because everyone at work is into walking. Even if you can get outside and walk around your house, it could get you motivated. Also, maybe you could use an MP3 player or IPOD and listen to music while you walk. That helps.

    I know just where you are. I'm just coming up from that place!
    Best of luck. I know you can do it!
