I'm Sticking With What Works For Me.......
Thursday, November 03, 2011
You would think that by the time you have reached my age (old) you would have emotional eating under control!!! Wrong!!!!! I have tried many things to control it and have found that there is really only one thing that works for me..........Keep Busy!!!!!
A couple of months ago I began a painting and cleaning project which included every cupboard interior in our kitchen. As long as I was involved in emptying the cupboards, washing everything in them that was washable, painting the interior walls, re-lining the shelves, and washing the woodwork, plus putting everything back in the cupboard.........I DID NOT THINK ABOUT EATING!!!!! And I was in the kitchen!!!!!! Exposed to food!!!!! If I am busy, food doesn't even enter my mind.........therefore, it doesn't enter my mouth either.
We had company for a month and I put the kitchen cupboards on hold. I also began to eat more than I should have. The past 3 days, I have returned to the project and have lost a pound. I only have so many cupboards and have done all of our closets..........I still have OTHER projects that I can begin which will last for at least a year. When that ends.........I may have to hire out..........what a plan.........I could make a few dollars AND lose weight!!!!
