Things I am doing this weekend other than eating

Friday, June 01, 2007

I feel like all I ever think about is food. When I think about the weekend I think about what yummy things I will get to eat or where I will dine, things like that. Since it's Friday I decided to make a list right now off the top of my head of things I will do this weekend besides eat. I really need to start REDIRECTING my thoughts when it comes to food. Food should just be something we NEED rather than want..it is so hard to switch my lifestyle but I really think I'm slowly starting. This website has helped out alot with my efforts. A friend of mine has a blog about things to do other than eating and that is where I got this idea! So here I go...
Take a long stroller walk
Clean out my linen closet
pull my scrapbooking stuff out
Write a letter to someone
Oh wow this is much harder than I thought...I keep thinking things like, go out to dinner, go grocery shopping..hmmm it's hard to come up with things. I have no plans this weekend so it's going to be hard to not eat. I have been doing okay the past couple weeks though. I used to eat real bad at night, and now I've started to do the redirection thing and that works quite well, I find something else to occupy my time like read a book. I am starting to realize that I will not be skinny overnight..this is going to be a gradual change and I know I will get there someday....thanks for listening to me ramble if you've made it this far!

    Hello, you've made the right move and have the right Idea, Suggestion is since you thank about food alot, Write down a weekly meal plan and weekly dessert plan and present it to your family to find out what days they want to eat like a resturant only your the cook! Replace your thinking about food with a chore, Like at night if I find myself in the fridge, I grad the broom and sweep and sometimes mop. This has happened quite often in the last 3 weeks, but I am not eating at night, I am lazy and do not want to sweep or mop so I tell myself if you don't want to sweep don't go there! I find that drinking water will help. Anywho, lets redirect our thoughts and get rid of the stinkin thinkin. LOL.
