I am on day 2 of being on Spark People again but started changing my diet about a week ago. I am doing well have been eating much better.
My biggest struggle...
I have so many mental struggles with my eating. I don't know how to overcome them so I am just working around them. I am not hungry but I want to eat all the time. Stress, boredom, depression, all of the above? I don't know. I am not sure how to get past this. I feel like I am constantly thinking about food. Even if it is healthy food I am still thinking what I am going to eat next even if I just finished eating.
I have been eating sunflower seeds in the shell as a "snack". Since they are in the shell it is a slow process so it takes a long time for me to finish them but it gives me the constant food idea. Also end up chewing gum to help.
I know I need to break this habit and move past it, just not sure how.
This process can be so difficult. One day at a time.
