I was so very hungry when i prepared my lunch, i prepared it quickly, didn't really notice what I was doing. I tasted the olive oil but didn't savor it. A bit of a taste of the 3 year old cheddar cheese and then on to the almonds, lovely and crunchy, one tasted bitter.

I did not slow down to really taste my food.
I slowed down sat with a cup of hot tea after lunch and enjoyed sipping the hot tea.

I begin my day with breakfast. I eaten my cereal which i find very fiberous, i have felt the cold milk and this morning i put down my spoon and looked at my bowl of cereal with milk. I picked up my spoon and ate some more, chewing & chewing and eventually swallowed mush. I ate all my cereal. This morning I found my eyes and looked at my bowl of cereal when i took a spoonful.

I guess I ate mindfully since I did not need insulin, at all. I had vegetable stew. It was really good; however, I should have had something sweet to go with it to bring up my energy.

I did not eat mindfully today. I prepared three meals for the day; however, I sat in front of the tv to eat the meals. I was totally distracted. I knew I was doing wrong but chose to do it anyway and not think about it. emoticon emoticon

Mindful eating with my breakfast cereal this morning. For the first time i noticed the cold milk. I wondered how good this cereal is for me it seemed like cardboard.

I ate mindfully at lunch with some distraction. I thought of what new foods I could cook that I seem to crave. Legumes.

I don't really feel like eating meat.

i ate supper slow. i ate less because i decided to wait about 10 minutes to see if i am still hungry. i thought i wanted more. i waited another 5 minutes and i felt full.

not always being mindful but if i can have success with 1 more meal or snack per day i should be successful.

No; however, I realize what one of my major problems is. I am so addicted to my computer that I get my food and race to the computer. I eat and work on my computer. I know this is extremely bad for my digestion and will try to remind myself that not to set at the computer or in front of the t.v. when I am eating. emoticon

No. I had mindful eating on my mind as I prepared my breakfast, but as I sat down I totally forgot what I was doing--except eating. As I finished breakfast I realized I had promised to practice mindful eating. My memory is as long as a snap of your finger.

I got want to do it and do this for me. My mind is in battle and my body is at war. I'm in battle with myself and if I can over come myself than I can over come it all and do it one day at a time, let it go and get one step closer to my goal.

felt a binge coming on, thought candy and cookies, but then I compromised and had a Big Mac, no combo though = thought mindfully about what I was going to do

Splurged on a McDonald's cheese, egg, and sausage biscuit and ate slowly with pure satisfaction.

Yes! I needed a small snack, but since it was so late, I wanted to make sure it satisfied, so I took it slowly and noticed every bite taste and chew.

I feel so much better now.

In a rush to open the office and fix things on all computers (bad computer day yesterday), I sat down to have a cup of coffee and two 90 calorie breakfast bars. When I went to log nutrients on my food tracker, I couldn't remember if I ate both of them or not. I had to check the wrappers in the trash can. OOPS- big slip-up. Do you believe it?

It was tough ... but I turned off the TV at dinner and really tried to savor the meal. My mind wandered off to other things that I needed to do tonight, but I would catch myself and focus on enjoying the meal (until my mind wandered off again).

I wasn't so attentive earlier in the day -- seems like I'm always doing something else while eating, but I'm working hard to break that habit at least occasionally!

I do pretty well at not overeating though, so that's a good thing.

Congratulations KELPA on doing it today!

Wow! Lot's of "no" responses to this question! I'm happy to say a big "YES"! Yesterday I started listening to the Doug Hanvey audio series on Mindful Diet. He said that the word "diet" is derived from a Greek word that means "way of life". I started breakfast eating mindfully and the rest of the day went quite well! Feel like I'm off to a good start!

I can't seem to eat without doing something else…surfing Sparkpeople, watching the Olympics. With that said, I really tried to pay attention to a Chick Fila salad that I ate last night. Yes, I was watching Olympic Gymnastics, but I focused on the crunch of the vegetables, the salty taste of the chicken and the zing of the homemade dressing…I hate restaurant salad dressings…too thick and gooey. I really enjoyed the crunch of the iceberg lettuce…even though that is not the kind I usually buy. Didn't love the bland taste though. emoticon
