100 days of OMAD: 16

Friday, April 06, 2018

It is still a mental fight to stay with One meal a day – every morning I negotiate with myself wether to have breakfast or not, it is relatively easy to stay away but I wonder why I even think about it. I am not paticulary hungry, there are not a lot of tempting foods in the fridge, there is simply no reason to have that negotiation, it´s just old habits that grumble I suppose.

As I am trying to moderate my One meal to a better size of the serving I am eating I am back to eat it around 3 in the afternoon. This gives cravings in the evening, but they were there when I had my meal at 6 pm as well so they are probably not guided by hunger, they are as the thought of breakfast a leftover from former habits. But a lot harder to withstand than the breakfast thought. I would probably do better if I stayed away from televions but that is hard too because it´s the only thing I have energy enough to do... I am to restless to consentrate on reading, writing or practising music i But I am happy with my progress and still hopeful that this mightbe a working path for me.

    I'm recognizing that very little of my eating is driven by real hunger. It's all a struggle with my mind....

    Hi Meddy,

    Thinking about you and wondering how you are doing on your OMAD journey? I found something this morning that I am hoping will ring true for you as it did for me. You reminded me of it when you spoke of "old habits that grumble" I ran across this quote while reading about a meditation on "Mindfulness". Here it goes; "Habits
    are formed and strengthened as we journey through a continuous loop seeking to satisfy our urges." ~Judson Brewer Later, he goes on to say..."Your mind is built to crave. Mindfulness can help us break free from unhealthy habits." i am hoping perhaps meditation could be beneficial to you as you learn to thrive with OMAD.

    Hoping for the VERY BEST for you. emoticon

    RE: "it´s just old habits that grumble I suppose" Great observation! I really appreciate your deliberate approach and your knack for linking observable behaviour to meaningful change. I have great hope for you, too!

    I know someone who lost a good deal of weight this way. He cut out sugar completely and didn't use dressing on his green salad. emoticon

    I'm glad you're making progress. This is something I could not do. If I miss regular fueling, I get a bad headache and nauseated. Best wishes.

    Thank you for sharing.
    Maybe you could take a nap or a bath early in the evening or in the afternoon so you feel less tired at night and can do other things than watch TV, and maybe will have less urges to overeat?
