What's working for me

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

I've been trying the Eat Stop Eat method where 2/3 days a week I don't eat after 8pm and try not to eat until about the same time the next day. I have been struggling with the hunger so when I get really hungry (about 12pm) I'll have a carrot and try to fill up on water, then I'll continue to have something small like a couple of dry crackers every time I feel really hungry until dinner. It's getting easier the more I do it and it feels like I'm making hardly any effort at all. I think it works for me because on the fasting days I just don't think about food because I'm not really eating. So far I've lost about 4lbs and I've been doing it a couple of weeks.

    I noticed that you mentioned that you would like to feel loved in the Spark People Cafe under what you wanted for Christmas. You first have to really love yourself. You sound like a gal with a lot going for her. You are trying to get fit and healthy. It doesn't sound like you need to lose much weight.
    You need to do something really special to celebrate yourself, and the truly wonderful person that you are. Cats are very good judges of character, and if they love you, then you have a lot going for you. Be good to you, love yourself, and the rest of the world will soon catch on. Have a great holiday!

    Glad it's working for you. It doesn't sound like anything I'd try. I just try to watch my portion size and what I eat.
