This is great! I have two things that I try to do.

I put the negative feeling onto a piece of paper in my mind and throw it into an imaginary jar, then it is gone. Felt it once, recognized it, and then got rid of it.

I also try to feel the emotion that tells me I need to eat something and then I say, this is not that awful, I can wait until snack time, it isn't that far away. It really works. The feeling of wanting to eat something isn't really the enemy, it is just another feeling. Feel it and put it away for the time being.

Cheers to all!

A year from now, you will wish you started today.

If you exercised when you first thought about it, you would be finished by now.

Suck it up and one day, you will be able to suck it in. *All quotes from my wise friend who lost 98 pounds.

My Stop Signs are going to be :
1. Stop: think about if you are really hungry ( Take 10 deep Breaths) drink some water.
2. Stop: go..... sew, go talk to Juliete, go to gym and PRAY
3.Stop: Write down everything I can think in my Thankful Journal.

Hello Team - we all need help when we lack motivation I came accross this and wanted to share.

"Create a Stop Sign"

By regularly drawing instead from both your head and heart hunger lists, you'll be able to avoid many of your emotional eating struggles right from the start. To use all these tools effectively, you need an instant reaction plan (an emotional stop sign) to remind yourself of your good intentions.

From your head and heart hunger lists, figure out your 3 favourites from each. Use these as your stop signs, like an emergency countdown plan for emotional hunger. Anytime you are tempted to reach for food, pull out your card and do the three things on your list. You want to be able to draw from the list instantly so make sure you have your card with you at all times.

Once you decide to use your stop signs from eating, do it quickly so you don't change your mind. Don't let your resolve weaken or try to convince yourself a little bit of food won't hurt you. The food usually does hurt you by increasing your emotional struggles or harming your self-esteem.

TODAY-
-In your journal, write down 3 things you will use as your stop sign plan for handling emotional hunger. Create separate lists for head and heart hunger issues.
-Copy your stop signs onto a billfold sized card and carry them with you as an instant reminder.
-Share your lists with a buddy and agree that you'll both use them as a set of emergency coping skills!

I find this is helping me - hope it helps you too

Have a great day

Suzi
