Good questions Jillian

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

"Before you eat anything, I want you to ask yourself two questions: Are you hungry? And are you depressed or anxious? Then ask the following question: Can you find an appropriate way to address whatever emotions you've uncovered instead of suppressing them?"

Truth be told, it's not much of an "article" but it does give me a jump-off point to figuring out why I can't seem to lose these last five pounds/inches and keep them off. There's got to be SOME reason why, even after I stock my house with healthy foods, I run to the vending machine at the first sign of trouble.... I've just got to find it.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could think of these things *before* we eat? I usually think of them after I've hoovered out my pantry from stress.

    If I would think about anything before I reach would be a good thing. Half the time I reach and eat before I even realize I did! Now that would definitely be categorized as brainless eating!

    Seeking the answer to the question, "What is my method of self-sabotage"? Those are great questions, IF you slow down long enough to ask them before throwing those loonies into the machine. I hope that this jump-off point helps you to discovering your answers.

    Yikes!! Yeah, that is a toughy!!

    I get choked with myself a lot over this type of thing. For me it is always that I have done a great week of workouts, so believe that it is OK for me to do whatever...then, 3 days later, I am still ok'ing it. Only when I notice the bulge in the belly (that doesn't quite go away in the AM), I say...DANG, I guess I better get back to it.

    Me thinks that you and me would give even Jillian a run for her money:)

    Hugs,
