Sabotage or confrontation? Going beyond the head games!
Wednesday, October 03, 2018
I'm kinda jumping around the Beck book. I'm putting a lot of effort into MINDFUL eating, focusing on my six "fuelings" per day with 80 grams of protein. I noted that I was getting a bit lax. I have learned and been practicing distinguishing the difference between "true hunger" or just head hunger, as well as thirst. My rule has been to look at my meal timings and not play games and definitely not have extended meal times turning into hours of mindless snacking!
I guess I'm concerned that that could be a self sabotaging behavior that I want to nip in the bud. Which is the whole reason for this semi out in the open discussion.
I am noticing that I am tending to go up and down weight-wise a pound or less - but week to week, I am down and loosing inches all over. My new pants are getting loose!
Did I mention that the bariatric surgeon said he's satisfied as long as I keep my BMI under 30, but that I probably shouldn't go under 180 pounds. I think I'd like to stay within a 180-185 range. That way I'll have a buffer to catch any problem behavior AND CORRECT IT before there is any real damage.
Any thoughts, dear reader(s)?
