About Me:
I am attempting to become a normal eater. You know the people, who eat when they are hungry but don't overeat and stay slim consistently? That's what I want to be! It's been about 10 years since I approached food this way and I am excited to get back there.

Websites I am using for support:

Books I am usin for support:
Breaking Free from Emotional Overeating by Geneen Roth

PROGRESS:
Month ~ Date ~ Waist Measurement

Jan 08 ~ 01/22/08 ~ 39 7/8 inches
Mar 08 ~ 03/25/08 ~ 40 inches
Apr 08 ~ 04/30/08 ~ 38 3/4 inches
May 08 ~ 05/29/08 ~ 39 inches
June 08 ~ 06/26/08 ~ 39 3/4 inches

What I've Learned So Far...

~Eating without distractions allows for feelings to rise. If I listen to those feelings, I will be empowered.
~I know when I am done eating because I all of a sudden I start thinking about whether or not I am full. Sometimes I will continue eating anyway. :)
~Depriving myself of food I want and need only makes me want to rebel by eating as much of it as I can get my hands on.
~All the things I don’t like about myself were born from the need to survive and the need to protect myself. They are not bad.
~Emotions can be strong and make me want to eat, but if I let myself feel them, they will fade with time.
~For me, dieting is not the answer. Deprivation only makes me want to eat.
~I eat when I am procrastinating. Better to do something about it than eat!
~I crave carbs but it’s not always what I need.
~Food tastes better when I am hungry.
~It feels good not to constantly have to write down what I eat.
~I like eating what I want to eat.

I ate one slice of pizza!

Posted on January 22, 2015 at 1:44pm 4 Comments

Non-scale victory as they say!  I had two slices, ate only one and am saving the other for later when I get hungry again.  I ate the bigger of the two....but still!! LOL

My new thing is to only give myself enough food to feel satisfied, ate least to guesstimate, because if it's on my plate I'm going to want to eat it!

Anger - The Misunderstood Emotion

Posted on January 22, 2015 at 7:00am 1 Comment

In this interesting article on Psychology Today called "Beyond Happiness: The Upside of Feeling Down", I read something about anger that blew me away!

 Anger results when we feel undervalued. It prompts us to reassert the importance of our welfare by threatening to harm others or withhold benefits if others don't recalibrate our worth. This explanation clarifies why you might get angry when people…

Today for my lunch hour I did some things just for me.  It's great working on a college campus because there is so much here at my fingertips.

  • I walked to the library and returned a book and checked out a new one.
  • I walked to the gym and scoped it out for future workouts...had to do…

Living in the moment

Posted on January 20, 2015 at 1:17pm 3 Comments

My resolution this year is to live in the moment and this weekend, I think I actually did it.  I spent the entire weekend sitting and playing with my kids, watching tv with them, making them food and eating with them, getting them involved in cooking and taking baths with them.  

There was a ton to do cleaning up the house but my husband took over those duties and I just hung with the kids.  If they wanted to go play, I played.  If they wanted to go outside, we went outside.…

I may have to try the water idea. Thanks! I think the bland taste is what gets me as well. Otherwise I have to have it super cold.
