Note to Self…

16 Comments 1395 views

You AREN’T HUNGRY… you are just looking for a snack while watching TV. Yesterday it was the dreaded dorritos.. the day before the cinnamon fish. It’s not that you can’t have these things it’s just that you are only eating out of habit. Break the pattern. Eat when hungry not when bored/sad/happy/stressed/whatever. Let’s get back to the basics. No more using stress as an excuse. K?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Very good point! I was a stress eater, an “eat when I’m bored” eater, an anger eater, a sad eater. Well, you get the picture. I used any emotion to overeat.

    It was a hard habit to conquer, that’s for sure.

    I hear ya. I usually watch TV when my daughter goes to bed. I find myself thinking about food the minute I sit down on the couch! Yikes! All those years of snacking have made this the hardest habit to break. BE STRONG!!!

    I hear ya. I’ve struggled the past day & a half (back to work stress after vacation) I still tracked what I ate, even if not how much, and walked 30 min this morning. I cannot let my accomplishment of a 26 lb loss (so far) go away to a bad mood.

    This was me yesterday. I was eating out of stress and couldn’t stop. I finally had to go to bed early to stop eating. Somedays I just need this reminder.

    ha… this is the story of my life with nursing school. Towards the end of the semester I started studying on the elliptical so I wouldn’t eat. It actually helped! I’m such a stress eater

    Last night, before I knew it, I’d inhaled around 400 calories of trail mix. It happened so fast! Hang in there, Roni!

    I need to say this to myself all the time! I should probably print it out and tape it to my computer and fridge!

    I completely understand the compulsion for the munchies. I know you can’t do this, with the toddler and all, but I removed all food from my house. I can’t eat what isn’t there. Now I have to go out and get what I want and I am surely not going to do that at 8, 9, or 10 at night. It helps me so much. You might consider setting the kitchen off limits after a certain time at night – simply pretend it does not exist for you.
