Another week of roller coaster weigh ins! UGH! I came across this article from Jena Pincott in the Huffington Post which helped me to come to grips with this week’s weight loss journey. Let’s see what you think…
You Eat At A Crowded Table – This isn’t my problem since it is only Rob and I for dinner or I am eating by myself.The lesson: “Sit next to slow eaters, they can help you pace your eating, not the speed eaters who eat like they grew up in a family of 12.”
Okay, so maybe this is part of my problem. Looking at ready-to-eat multipacks makes you overindulge. Stockpiled food is consumed twice as fast as other food in the house. The problem is simple: Bulky packages consume too much kitchen real estate; we see them every time we open the cupboard, for instance. Visibility translates into impulsivity, and, before we know it, we’re eating more than we intended. The lesson: Out of sight, out of mind. Move multi-unit packs of food out of the kitchen and into the basement, freezer, underground bunker…wherever that cluster of bright labels won’t catch your eye.
The truth is that I stopped doing what worked – measuring everything and tracking. Yes, I have had issues with my IBS. Yes, I have been retained fluid for some unknown reason. Yes, I have been spending a lot of time sitting intend of walking . I will blame the miserable winter weather for that one. All just excuses to justify the yo-yo scale.
I would love to hear what you have to say about all of this.. Share your thought.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
