Taking Orders From A Cookie Is My Fear

So what did I do?

I thought to myself I have to do something completely different than I have done before.  I had to figure out why I was eating what I was eating and what triggered those eating attacks.

I did 6 things for a month.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to figure this out until I really understood my eating patterns over time.  Here’s what I did:

  • I bought a journal
  • I wrote down everything I ate even when I was binging
  • I wrote down how much I was eating
  • I wrote down what I was feeling at that precise moment
  • I wrote down the time of the day I was ravenous for junk food
  • I logged in my exercise time

I could not believe all the junk food and processed foods I was eating.  My trigger points weren’t related to hunger most of the time. 

I binged on junk food because it was in my house in abundance.  I also realized that I was doing virtually no exercise because “I didn’t feel like it”.

It wasn’t pretty to see how poorly I was eating that month, but some positive news came from this experiment.  I slowly started to make changes to my eating habits.

I knew I wouldn’t lose a lot of weight in 1 month.  I had to figure out what was going on in my head, first.  Once I overcame the psychological hurdles, my decision making process became much easier.

If you don’t want to take orders from a cookie, or even worse, die from your obesity health risks, buy a journal or diary and begin the process of understanding the trigger points for your eating habits.

Are you ready to conquer “overcoming my emotional fear”?
