I have been doing alot of thinking about my mind and how it works with/against me in my journey to health and weight release (loss) and today this came across my email..

The item below is this weeks tip from the website. I find the information on this website to be extremely helpful in reference to my emotional eating/food addiction issues. He does have this website to sell his program, but, there is a huge wealth of free info that is available as well..

By now you might realize that weight loss begins in your mind. It really is a case of mind over matter. What you might not realize, however, is that while your thoughts create your food choices, conversely your food choices also create your thoughts.

My name is Sunshine, my Food Sobriety is 154 days OP...35 lbs lighter!!.

Thank you Lord for helping me!!.

No joke, that is really how I have to approach staying OP each day!!.

I don't think myself thin, I think of physically feeling good and good about myself!.

One bite, One lick, One taste will trigger me and I will be eating carbs and waking up with a Carb Hangover!! Then realize that I will start from Day 1..then comes the depression... and don't know how long I would eat off plan until I got focused and disciplined again!! So I tell myself that the foods that I craved are not worth it.

I Love Chocolate, so I keep Medifast Chocolate Bars, RTD Chocolate Shakes, SF Chocolate Syrup to make Chocolate Pancake Muffins. I Love Chips, so I keep Parm Puffs and Chili Puffs, and Mustard Pretzels on hand..

Ok, so I may have went off the topic..

Hi sunshine10!.

I don't think you went off topic at all, I want to have discussions about emotional eating and how to work through it..

It is good that you can have puffs, Ithey trigger me, and I have to stay away from them and all of the bars..

But I do enjoy my Torani SF syrups and SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia flavors, they keep my shakes, puddings and soft serve interesting, so many flavor combinations!.

You are still using your mind to work with your issues, and our thoughts do effect our food choices and vice versa..

Come on I want to hear from some other emotional eaters out there!..

Almost every dieter I've worked with has had difficulty distinguishing between true hunger (when you've fasted for several hours and your stomach is empty), a desire to eat (not being particularly hungry but eating because there is food around), and a craving (a physiological and emotionally intense urge to eat)..


How do you know when you are really hungry? Think about three recent occasions when the following occurred:.

- You hadn't eaten for many hours and really felt ravenous. That empty sensation in your stomach, often accompanied by stomach rumblings, was hunger..

- You ate a big meal and yet you still wanted to continue to eat more. That was a desire..

-You had a very strong urge to eat, which was accompanied by a feeling of tension and an unpleasant yearning sensation in your mouth, throat, or body. That was a craving..

The above items are from The Beck Diet Solution page 116..

I thought the description of cravings was right in and it really effected me, since I always thought that I was the only one that felt that way. To see it in print was wierd...
